this book was a mix of confusion and good.
it was a good read I suppose.

The writing style of the main character John was quite original. He was also very witty, which was surprising because the story is about his grim life where he felt alone and unknown to others. Thankfully, it taught a lesson about never surrendering to your adversaries, and to place faith and trust in the authority figures around you (ex. teachers). It was a great novel for healing this teen's summer boredom for a day.

I found this book very fulfilling, and the author's style a bit weird, but enjoyable. This is a story of a teenage boy named John who is going though a hard time, and believes no one can help him, and he is all alone. Even though there are people all around him willing to help. I recommend this anyone over the age of twelve.

I stopped reading this book around chapter 6 or 7. It was kinda of hard to understand. The way he said things and explained things was weird and didn't make sense at times. I thought it was gonna be a good book but they way it was worded and wrote was hard for me to understand.

"You Don't Know Me" is a great novel for teenagers. At the beginning I was really suprise because the main character in the story was suffering a lot. However I loved the end, and I highly recommend it for people who might be having some problems with their lives, this novel is going to help them to understand that nothing is impossible in life and at the end everything gets resolved.
