Glad to see a nonfiction novel making the Teens' Top Ten nominees

We Should Hang Out Sometime by Josh Sundquist

We Should Hang Out Sometime

By: John Sunderquist

Genre: YA autobiography

Pages: 336

Published: 2014

Read: July

4 out of 5

I don’t understand why authors of  nonfiction books feel the need to constantly repeat themselves. Sunderquist mentions how is prosthetic leg works in almost every other chapter…I heard him the first time. Whenever authors repeat something numerous times I feel they are using it as a page filler to make story longer. However (and this is a big however), Sunderquist’s story is hilarious and very entertaining. I was glad to see a nonfiction book make the Teens’ Top Ten nominations and believe it was well deserved. As a person with a disability I completely understand the embarrassing, but sometimes even funny to me moments that can happen. I also felt for Josh on how his disability can affect all his relationships even if unwilling to see it himself.
