2015 book 114

Jen Brooks' In A World Just Right
I love books about alternate worlds, and Brooks has a really interesting spin on the concept here. After surviving a tragic accident as a child, Jonathan discovers he has the ability to create alternate worlds, and now that he's a teenager, he spends most of his time in a world where his dream girl, Kylie, is his girlfriend (but everything else is more or less the same). But one day he gets the worlds confused and approaches Kylie in the real world, and suddenly she is paying a lot of attention to him. And then things start to get even weirder. It's great. I definitely wished less of the story focused on the romance when there was a whole big mystery thing I wanted answered, but it makes sense in context. I mean, things are a little bit predictable, but the end packed a wallop for sure (minus the very very end but whatever, it's YA). B+.
