    5. When I picked up Things I Should Have Known, I wasn t sure what to expect YA romances always have the chance of being too cheesy for me and mental illness is not always represented genuinely However I was pleasantly surprised in both aspects The autistic characters in the story and their relatives, how people reacted to everything, felt very authentic In the authors bio it did state that she had a son who was autistic and had written two books on autism so I guess that s why this book ended up r [...]


    6.

    11. On the outside, it may seem like eighteen year old Chloe Mitchell has a perfect life, but things are not always what they seem Sure, she s popular and pretty, gets good grades, and even has an attractive and athletic boyfriend, but that only just scratches the surface Chloe has an older sister, Ivy, who is on the autism spectrum, their father passed away from cancer a few years ago, and their mother, who s pretty passive about everything going on, has remarried a man named Ron, who can sometimes [...]

    20. An excellent book that focuses on a loving relationship between two sisters, Chloe and Ivy Ivy, who has autism and Chloe who cares about her sisters well being than anything else Having someone very close to me who is autistic allowed this book to speak volumes, I truly have not read a realistic YA novel before The characters, situations, and storyline felt like a true story Though my experiences with my loved one who is autistic differs, I can still relate to this story 100% because the writi [...]


    21. I loved the relationships in this novel They re so adorable It s also very realistic and it opened my eyes about autism.


    22. I d like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with a digital ARC of this book I absolutely loved this book Claire LaZebnik takes multiple characteristics that are usually and unfairly avoided ignored by authors and creates wonderful realistic characters I found the plot very engaging, and I genuinely loved the pacing, as well as the way the story turned out I honestly cannot think of a single thing about this book that I disliked, and therefore I highly recommend this to all of [...]


    23. Muy tierno, entretenido y ganchero.Es bastante emotivo y trata muy bien el autismo, est n muy bien definidos los perfiles de los personajes Es muy realista y nada hip crita, me gusto esoNQUE sent que utiliza demasiado la palabra normal para diferenciar a las personas que tienen autismo de las que no, incluso en un momento dicen algo como no ser raro Si bien en general est bien como maneja todo, eso me choc Aunque tal vez y espero sea una impresi n m a, la autora escribe libros sobre autismo y ti [...]


    24. It was enjoyable and I couldn t put it down I liked the family dynamics although it sometimes felt too clich and predictable and unrealistic The autism aspect was definitely the highlight of the book Although I have never dealt with it myself, I should hope that it s as much an every day challenge as it becomes a normal daily routine that people come to terms with Worries, love, doubts, hope, annoyance are all parts of it The main characters were endearing most of the time However, I was really [...]


    25. I loved the way this book starts out on one track a standard romancey trajectory and then veers off into something different and deeper This book explores the tricky space between caring deeply for a sibling and imparting your own desires or assumptions about them on to them And it is so Readable The way family dynamics are explored feels so real, even the parents involved are fleshed out I even ended up begrudgingly respecting the stepdad in the end The romantic development between two of the c [...]


    26. 4.5 starsOriginally posted at Random Musings of a Bibliophile.My feelings for Clair LaZebnik s books have run from lukewarm to extreme love I was on the fence about reading Things I Should Have Known because I knew it dealt with autism, and I was worried about how that would go All her other books I ve read have been fluffy, romantic modern Austen retellings I was thoroughly pulled into this story and characters though This is definitely on the extreme love end of my LaZebnik book rankings.Chloe [...]


    27. This review was originally posted on Latte Nights Reviews.Chloe is one of the popular girls at her school but it s not because she tries It s because she doesn t try that people admire her and like her She s even dating the most popular guy at school and everything seems okay But at home, Chloe takes care of her older sister Ivy who is Autistic Chloe is already used to taking care of Ivy and being there for her, so when Ivy starts asking questions about kissing and relationships, Chloe sets out [...]


    28. Things I Should Have Known took me by surprise, and completely swept me off my feet through its lovable characters and thoughtful, heartwarming story It s like people have a place in their brain for normal, and they have a place in their brain for something obviously wrong, but they can t deal with something just a little bit different At first, I thought I was reading about our usual pretty, popular girl with the perfect boyfriend when we first meet Chloe But she felt unique as her layers were [...]


    29. I received this book from publisher via Netgalley in exchange for honest reviewI started this book thinking I m gonna get some cute, adorable, hate to love romance and maybe some juicy family drama and instead what I got was lots and lots of siblings love how it is to have sibling with autism I mean, there s also the family drama adorable romance, but I ll get to that later.Our protagonist, CHLOE is not your usual girl I mean, the main girls in books are usually innocent, never been in love, an [...]
