The Girl He Used to Know by Tracey Garvis Graves is a delightful little novel about Annika (who finds it difficult to navigate social situations) dealing with life and love. It alternates between college in 1991 when Annika is dating Jonathan to 2001 when they have separate lives in Chicago and find each other again. I really enjoyed this quick book – it reminded me a little bit of Jojo Moyes, which, of course, made it appealing. My only annoyance was how frequently Annika was described as beautiful. It was unnecessary and, frankly, a little off-putting. Even so, I’d grab it if you have a chance – it’s good for now or to savor at the beach this summer.

I hope you like it – nothing deep, but I thought it was a good story and well-told for the most part.
