Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley was such a fun book. I listened to the audio, and the narrators were fantastic. I highly recommend it!
Solomon is 16-years-old and hasn't left his house in three years. Lisa is a senior in high-school with dreams of getting into the second best psych program in the country. Lisa's goal: Get Solomon to leave the house and write her college essay on how she helped him. Reality: become amazing friends with Solomon, accuse your boyfriend of cheating on you and watch both relationships blow up.
I love every, single character in this book from Solomon and Lisa to Solomon's grandma! Such a fun cast of characters. The plot line is interesting and different while still being a high school story. You know, when Lisa says she can't let Solomon know she's writing her essay on him, that he will find out and it will end poorly, but you read along anyway, because you care about the characters so much. You want, maybe need, to see Solomon get out of the house. You want to see how the friendship between Lisa, Solomon and Lisa's boyfriend Clark evolves. And you're never let down.
There's nothing magical or super adventurous happening here. It's just a great story of a boy afraid to leave his house and the two people who prove that not everyone in the world is worth hiding from.
