We Should Hang Out Sometime by Josh Sundquist

10:00 pm 0 Comments A+ a-

A bright, poignant, and deeply funny autobiographical account of coming of age as an amputee cancer survivor, from Josh Sundquist: Paralympic ski racer, YouTube star, and motivational speaker.

Josh Sundquist only ever had one girlfriend.
For twenty-three hours.
In eighth grade.

Why was Josh still single? To find out, he tracked down the girls he had tried to date and asked them straight up: What went wrong?

The results of Josh's semiscientific, wholly hilarious investigation are captured here. From a disastrous Putt-Putt date involving a backward prosthetic foot, to his introduction to CFD (Close Fast Dancing), to a misguided "grand gesture" at a Miss America pageant, this story is about looking for love--or at least a girlfriend--in all the wrong places.



Hey! Here's my review.

This is an autobiographical collection of anecdotes where the author looks back on his awkward adolescence to try to work out why he never had a girlfriend. To try to understand, he even tracks them down ten years later to ask them if they liked him and what went wrong. Full of awkward moments and shy misunderstandings that make you just want to shout at him, "Just tell her how you feel!" I could relate to that shyness as I was too scared to tell boys how I felt when I was that age too. 

I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
