Analee, in Real Life

Analee in Real Life is about a teenage girl who recently lost her mother. Soon after, she loses her best friend as well. About the only friend she has is in an online game. His name is Harris, and she has a crush on him. So when the most popular boy in the school, Sebastian Matias asks her to pose as his girlfriend to make his ex jealous, she agrees.

This book is very relate able, for teens everywhere. Many kids have the same problems Analee does, and seeing someone else go through it helps. The reality of the book was refreshing because, although I was disappointed when Seb and Analee broke up, it shows us what would happen in the real world. I like how it is realistic like that.

I fell in love with this book as soon as I read the first chapter. This was amazing, realistic and heartwarming. I know teens will love it, because I could relate to this book a lot. I hope that it will be one of the YALSA Teens' Top Ten, because I couldn't imagine a better realistic fiction book than this.
