"[Barrow] steadily resists cliche and tired tropes all the way to the novel's deeply felt, unflinching conclusion. This compelling, closely observed debut charts its appealing characters' difficult journey with clarity and honesty." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Audrey's emotions swing wildly; she candidly portrays the all-consuming and delicate nature of her situation and the choice she faces. Debut author Barrow opts for realism over a scared-straight approach to teen pregnancy, which readers will appreciate." -- Publishers Weekly "In both its humor and in its aching, You Don't Know Me but I Know You is the most honest book I've read in ages." -- Emery Lord, author of The Start of Me and You and When We Collided "Both relentlessly honest and relentlessly hopeful, You Don't Know Me but I Know You stands out as a book that cares profoundly about the power of friendship and the thrill of getting to know yourself. Above all else, it's a testament to the bravery, brightness, and beauty of teenaged girls." -- Corey Ann Haydu, author of OCD Love Story and Life by Committee "You Don't Know Me but I Know You is a heartfelt, powerful examination of family: the one we're born to, the one we choose, and the one that chooses us. Rebecca Barrow's novel feels all at once heartbreaking, hopeful, and true." -- Janet McNally, author of Girls in the Moon "Honest, nuanced, and achingly authentic, You Don't Know Me but I Know You is both sensitive and unflinching in its portrayal of life-shattering choices and their aftermaths. It's populated with strong female friendships that feel more like a sisterhood." -- Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of Firsts
