You Don’t Even Know

A story of love, loss and forgiveness.

Alex Hudson is a good guy. He plays water polo. He has a part-time job. He’s doing okay at school.

Then the thing that anchors Alex is ripped away and his life seems pointless.

How can he make anyone else understand how he feels, when he doesn’t even know?

“Devastating yet hopeful, You Don’t Even Know faces unflinchingly the guilt and pain that accompanies the loss of a loved one and the potential destruction that can come in the aftermath.

Alex’s voice is authentic and his story brutal, told with an unselfconscious honesty that will resonate with teenage readers.

Perfect for teenage fans of John Green and Melina Marchetta, You Don’t Even Know explores what it means to be part of a family and the struggle to be true to yourself.”


“This is a wonderful, heart breaking, life-affirming story that will appeal to its young adult audience from the first page. Highly recommended.”
