    ONE OF MY VERY FAVORITE BOOKS OF THE YEAR I can say without a hint of hesitation that I truly loved this YA story and it was everything that I d hoped it might be after reading the blurb Nate s life was lonely, as he had no friends, other than his loving, supportive aunt and his dearly departed grandmother, but he tried his best to not let that bring him down.James life was full of turmoil and grief over the death of his beloved brother, after becoming heavily involved with drugs, but James was good at hiding his emotions and pretending that he was okay, when he truly wasn t.I adored how James immediately hit it off with Nate, in spite of the fact that no one else in their high school would so much as talk to Nate James didn t have time for their petty bullshit, instead he only saw that Nate was a great guy A boy worth knowing And maybe even loving.The story was told from Nate s point of view and I enjoyed being inside his slightly neurotic head, as he met the new boy in school and they quickly became best friends, nearly inseparable.The conflict in the story mostly surrounded Nate s growing feelings for James and James working his way through his feelings surrounding his brother s recent death.But Nate had a bit of help, in the form of a couple of ghosts Yep, you heard me right Ghosts Throughout the book, Nate was visited repeatedly by his loving, dead Gran, who also had the ability to sense ghosts, an ability which runs in his family She helped Nate deal with the many ...

    I don t read as much Y A adult as I used to, because with me getting older, it gets harder and harder to identify with the MC s But every now and then, a Y A book comes along that blows my mind.which is exactly what this book did.This story is about Nate and JamesNate is 17 years old and quite the loner Not because he wants to be, but because he doesn t have any friends Everyone at school sees him as some sort of freak, because they don t understand Nate Nate only has two people in his life who care about him and with whom he can talk His Aunt Susan, who took him in, after his mom kicked him out, and his departed Nana That s right.Nate can see and speak to ghostsI loved Nate from the very first page He was so sweet and so lonely and my heart broke for him.Nate has been able to talk to ghosts since he was 12 years old His Nana, being able to do the same thing, used to help him when she was still alive and she is still trying to be there for him after death Having been caught talking to himself when he was younger has earned him the title of the school freak.Always alone Always the freak no one wanted to get close to My chest was so tight I couldn t breath.But things are about to change when a new boy comes to town.James, also 17 takes an immediate liking to Nate They become fast friends and Nate is very happy, even tough he believes this friendship will only be temporary.Things aren t easy for the both of them though James is grieving the recent loss of hi...

    I enjoyed this young adult audiobook debut by Jennifer Cosgrove, but I couldn t help but think that A Boy Worth Knowing could have been something .I don t read that much YA, and this book reminded me of why I found the MCs to be a bit immature for high school seniors, and a bit too innocent However, I thought the story was, in turns, both sweet and heart breaking I liked the ghost aspect, but I think Jennifer Cosgrove could have taken it even further It was strange how people didn t ask him to talk to the dead or do stuff with his abilities I was hoping for a intriguing adventure or mystery with the paranormal stuff, but it all ended up being very hum drum The story was cute, but a bit boring Nothing much happened I liked it at first, but my attention waned a bit as the story went on Also, the depiction of high school seemed very 90s movie and not very realistic, IMO I enjoyed the...

    What a lovely story this was I was immediately enad with Nate and his voice He was such a sweet soul, who happened to have an ability that made him different And different in high school calls for trouble And lack of friends And loneliness.Nate is 17 years old and can see and talk to ghosts He has regular talks with his deceased Nana, and waves to the grumpy, naked guy on the cemetary every day He lives with his aunt after his mother kicked him out because she couldn t deal with his ability Nate is an upbeat guy, but he s also very lonely.That is until James moves into town James befriends Nate at school immediately Nate thinks James is just too good to be true, but he finds out James is just really nice and the two become fast friends But Nate just knows James won t stay his friend if he ever finds out what Nate can do Especially when James comes with his own ghost stuck to him It s not like Nate can really ignore that..I absolutely loved these guys It was such a pleasure to be in Nate s head He was sweet, but sad and I just wanted to hug him I loved it when James became his friend and especially when they became than friends.This is YA, but I was very happy to find out that these young guys do explore their sexual feelings for each other In some YA books it s like they suddenly have no sexual thoughts But even though we don t get the full on detailed naked sexy times no fade to black either, these guys are just not ready for the real thing yet , we do get make out ...

    This was such a great surprise I am not much into paranormal reads but I have to say, I am so glad I gave this a go because this was incredibly good A Boy Worth Knowing has that special vibe of couldn t stop reading it.I think the author has approached the paranormal subject in a very sensitive and careful way Instead of making it sinister and creepy, she opted for light and f...

    Pocas cosas me despiertan m s ternura que un buen YA Y este me ha despertado mucha Tenemos todos los estereotipos de lo High School de USA, estereotipos que encajan con una realidad, tenemos un toque paranormal con fantasmas incluidos, y tenemos una pareja de protagonistas que encaran como pueden su adolescencia, que se sienten solos, que est n solos, que se hacen amigos y que se enamoran.Very cute, muc...

    This one s not only worth reading But I m pretty sure at some point I will be doing a re read on this.I honestly only have one big issue with this book and that s the title because there s not one boy worth knowing in this book there s 2 There s funny, smart, sweet, adorable, isolated Nate and then there s James Handsome, loyal, not afraid to think for himself, James.Now before I go any further let s talk about the titletruthfully the title is perfect, but you ll have to read the book to find out whyI m not spoiling Also I probably wouldn t have read this book so soon if it wasn t for my friend Todd s review Seriously it s an awesome review, check it out right hereTodd s Awesome ReviewI think a lot of us remember what it s like to be a teenager and I ll be one of the first to admit It s not easy and for me it often wasn t fun and I have no desire to repeat it But imagine being a teenager able to do something that pretty much anyone else can tlike, I don t know maybe see and talk to dead people Seriously, life would suck.Nate s been on his own for a long time so when someone lik...

    I gradually fell out of love with this as it went along, until I was sorely tempted to DNF 84% Initially I liked 17 year old Nate s narrative voice he was smart without being overly snarky I ve read so many YA novels that try too hard, ending up with a 1st person narration that s strident and obnoxious.What didn t ring true here was Nate s age he s a high school senior, but came across to me as a 14 or 15 year old But the deal killer was the utterly clich nature of the high school drama Apparently every American high school is equipped with a maniacally evil beautiful blonde sociopath, and Nate s school was no exception I cannot stand this stereotype of an all powerful teenage girl, as evil as she is beautiful, spewing venom and hatred as she effortlessly dominates a school comprised of hundreds of students, all of whom cringe and cower before her I mean seriously WTF I went to an American high school myself, and believe me, life was not like that.I m going to go wit...
