入選柯克斯書評網(Kirkus Review)2018年度最佳青少年選書
  無論面臨再大的困難,都別忘記,我們永遠不是獨自一個人

  Charlotte的家住美國東部賓州,想當地質學家,在房間搜集了一堆石頭;而Ben則來自墨西哥灣附近,最喜歡閱讀哈利波特與美國總統史。兩個相距千里遠的青少年,看似八竿子打不著,卻在網路拼字遊戲上產生了交集。

  突然被最好的朋友罵自己是寄生蟲,學生會活動導致的嘲諷批評,頻繁進出加護病房的父親,令人無法接受的離婚結果⋯⋯Charlotte與Ben在遊戲中與彼此對抗,也同時在現實中,與周遭的校園生活與家庭難題之間對抗著⋯⋯

  透過Charlotte與Ben的第一人稱視角,讓讀者更清楚地感受到那些在字裡行間中,沒被明寫的,青少年們內心的混沌與糾結。這是一本關於成長,以及引導青少年如何在諾大的世界中,找到屬於自己位置,有趣而又同時撼動人心的小說。(文/博客來編譯)

「這本書,寫給那些在國中校園生活裡,覺得孤零零的孩子們。」-《普羅維登斯日報》

Funny and poignant, Newbery Medalist and New York Times bestseller Erin Entrada Kelly's national bestseller You Go First is an exploration of family, bullying, word games, art, and the ever-complicated world of middle school friendships.
In a starred review, School Library Journal wrote that Erin Entrada Kelly can "capture moments of tween anguish with searing honesty."
Twelve-year-old Charlotte Lockard and eleven-year-old Ben Boxer are separated by more than a thousand miles. On the surface, their lives seem vastly different--Charlotte lives near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, while Ben is in the small town of Lanester, Louisiana.
Charlotte wants to be a geologist and keeps a rock collection in her room. Ben is obsessed with Harry Potter, presidential history, and recycling. But the two have more in common than they think. They're both highly gifted. They're both experiencing family turmoil. And they both sit alone at lunch.
During the course of one week, Charlotte and Ben--friends connected only by an online Scrabble game--will intersect in unexpected ways as they struggle to navigate the turmoil of middle school. The New York Times-bestselling novel You Go First reminds us that no matter how hard it is to keep our heads above troubled water, we never struggle alone.
Newbery Medalist Erin Entrada Kelly writes with an authentic, humorous, and irresistible voice. This engaging and character-driven story about growing up and finding your place in the world is for fans of Rebecca Stead and Rita Williams-Garcia.
