Publisher Description

You Know Me Well is a deeply honest story about navigating the joys and heartaches of first love, one truth at a time. Who knows you well? Your best friend? Your boyfriend or girlfriend? A stranger you meet on a crazy night? No one, really? Mark and Kate have sat next to each other for an entire year, but have never spoken. For whatever reason, their paths outside of class have never crossed. That is until Kate spots Mark miles away from home, out in the city for a wild, unexpected night. Kate is lost, having just run away from a chance to finally meet the girl she has been in love with from afar. Mark, meanwhile, is in love with his best friend Ryan, who may or may not feel the same way. When Kate and Mark meet up, little do they know how important they will become to each other -- and how, in a very short time, they will know each other better than any of the people who are supposed to know them more. An audiobook told in alternating points of view by Nina LaCour, the award-winning author of Hold Still and The Disenchantments, and David Levithan, the best-selling author of Every Day and co-author of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (with Rachel Cohn) and Will Grayson, Will Grayson (with John Green).

“Matthew Brown and Emma Galvin’s complementary readings give credence to the characterizations, especially the closeness of the two friends. Galvin depicts Kate’s superficial self as secure and slightly sarcastic. But soon Kate’s confidences with Mark reveal that she’s masking indecision about committing to a girl she’s loved from afar, owning her artistic skills, and overturning her sense of isolation. Brown also captures Mark’s angst when he discovers that his best friend can’t return the romantic feelings Mark has for him. Together, pondering Mark and fiery Kate nudge and support each other towards greater honesty.”

The dual POVs highlight the fact that friendships can be powerful—regardless of how long you have actually been friends.”
