You Against Me by Jenny Downham -- a YA problem novel with a forbidden romance. "For those who like that sort of thing, that is the sort of thing they like." In other words, I can see readers who devour Laurie Halse Anderson and Jodi Picoult enjoying this book. It does a good job tackling the issues, though sometimes it felt ever so slightly didactic to me. Both Ellie and Karyn (two of the main characters) apparently like spouting trivia and statistics, which is extremely convenient when an author wants to work in tidbits of research that they found relevant to the story. On the whole, I thought this was a pretty good read, and its ideal reader will find it an excellent one.
