Tell Me Three Things is the story of Jessie, whose mother has died and her father has remarried. They move from Chicago, where everything is familiar, to Los Angeles, which feels to Jessie like another world. When she starts her new school, Jessie finds that she doesn't fit in at all until she starts getting e-mails from someone calling himself Somebody/Nobody (SN for short). SN goes to her school and offers to help her navigate through the new school blues. Jessie finds herself getting closer to SN and wants to know who he is, but he refuses to tell her. Life becomes more and more difficult as Jessie antagonizes the popular girls in the school and becomes an outcast.

This is a wonderful story of learning to accept what can't be changed but standing up for yourself and changing what you can. Jessie's voice is easily identifiable as she navigates through life in an unfamiliar house and school, gets to know her stepmother and stepbrother, and finds her own way. I really liked this story but I would suggest reading it with some tissues handy.
