I Like You Like This
Heather Cumiskey, Author
In 1984 Connecticut, sixteen-year-old Hannah Zandana feels cursed: She has wild, uncontrollable hair and a horrid complexion that she compulsively picks, and as if that weren’t bad enough, her emotionally unavailable parents mercilessly ridicule her appearance and verbally shame her. Wanting to change her pathetic life, Hannah attempts to impress a group of popular girls—an ill-fated effort, except that she captures the attention of Deacon, a handsome and mysterious boy who also happens to be her school’s resident drug dealer. Suddenly, Hannah’s life takes an unexpected detour into Deacon’s dangerous and seductive world—but when her relationship and family unravel around her, she is forced to reexamine what she believes about herself and the people she trusts the most. Perfect for fans of 'Our Chemical Hearts' by Krystal Sutherland, '13 Reasons Why' by Jay Asher, and 'All the Bright Places' by Jennifer Niven, 'I Like You Like This' is a poignant young adult read about addiction, sexuality, peer pressure, and first love.
