What It Reminds Me Of: It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini
Summary: Noah and his twin sister Jude are wonderfully close. At thirteen, Noah often draws in his head and is falling in love with the boy next door. At thirteen, Jude wears deep red lipstick and cliff dives. But three years later the twins are barely speaking to each other. Something has wrecked the twins’ friendship in diverse and emotional ways. Till Jude meets a cocky, subdued, gorgeous boy as well as someone else who flips her world around in a different way she thought he would. The older years are Jude’s story to tell, while the younger years are Noah’s. Noah and Jude don’t realize if they could remake their friendship, they could remake their world.
I am absolutely in love with this book. The characters are so intense, lovable and balanced. I love Jude and Noah both as characters for their story is amazing. I would recommend this book honestly to anyone. It moved my heart and I couldn’t help but fall in love with this book.
I absolutely loved Noah and Jude. Both of these characters are super easy to love, yet sometimes you can’t help but hate them (in a good way). Their thoughts and actions made this book incredibly fun and intense to read. I also felt like it’s easy to connect to Noah and Jude, for they go through many struggles through this book.
This book definitely played with my emotions. Some chapters I wanted to throw the book out the window, while others I wanted to marry it. It captured my interests from the start to end and I couldn’t put it down. At first it seems the book will be pretty predictable but I tell you it is anything but. The plot twists and ending left me with my mouth open for hours. It’s well paced and left me wanting more. The ending was my favourite part of this book. It tied all the loose ends together and was happy, but still sad.
Overall I really enjoyed this book. It was unique, easy to understand and took me on an emotional rollercoaster. I would recommend this to anyone looking for their hearts to be moved. Definitely a great read.
