I'm Nobody Book Review

I’m Nobody

About the Book

Caleb Reed is losing his mind. At least that’s what his parents think. For one thing, he’s scared of everything. In fact, he hasn’t stepped foot outside his house in over seven years. And now there’s the notes, strange poetic notes written by someone named Emily Dickinson. Are the notes from Iris, the YouTube obsessed 8th grader that’s been trying to make a documentary of his messed up life? Has his deceased older sister returned from the grave to deliver some sort of message? Or are the pages really from the pen of Emily Dickinson, the reclusive and long dead 19th century poet? With his sanity in question, Caleb Reed’s entire existence depends on finding an answer. (Goodreads)

My Review
I really loved this book because it was different. This is a young adult novel about Caleb's unique life and how he starts receiving notes possibly written by Emily Dickinson?! I love how this book captured the age of an 8th grader and the attitudes that adults have in life. The mystery behind this book was fun and unique, most young people wouldn't even know who Emily Dickinson is or about the life she lived. Since I knew a bit of her background I enjoyed the book all the more. The details made me laugh and I really loved Caleb's character. The cover is perfect and I really just enjoyed this book overall.
If you enjoy young adult fiction, I think you will enjoy this book.

"I received this book from the Litfuse for free in exchange for an honest review."
