Dying to Know You (YA)
Book #46 Read in 2013
Dying to Know You by Aidan Chambers (YA)
Karl asks a local writer to help him communicate with his girlfriend, who has ordered him to answer her sheet of questions in grammatically correct writing. Karl has dyslexia and feels unsure about his writing and since the writer is one of his girlfriend's favorite authors, he thought that this may be a better way of answering her questions. The two men begin a friendship and begin to help and learn from each other. Both find in the other something that will fill the gap that has been in their lives.
This was a good, quick read. I enjoyed the thoughts of writing and books but I really love the two main characters and the relationship they developed. I enjoyed this book.
