about

*"All my life I've felt on the outside wherever I am, out of the picture, the conversation, at one remove, as though I was the only one able to hear the sounds or words that others can't and deaf to the words that they seem to hear. As if I'm outside the frame, on the other side of a huge, invisible window.

But yesterday when I was there with her, I'm certain that you could have drawn a circle around us, a circle I wasn't excluded from, which enclosed us, and for a few minutes, protected us from the world."*

At thirteen-years-old, with an unusually high IQ and a knack for observing things about other people, Lou Bertignac is not only the youngest in her class at school; she is also the most unusual. Painfully shy, she has few friends, save for Lucas, whose company helps her get through each day. At home, Lou's life is also difficult: Her mother hasn't left the house in years and her father spends his days crying in the bathroom. Lou's world is dark and sad... That is, until she meets No.

No is a teenage girl that Lou befriends for the purpose of her school project on homelessness. Despite the different worlds that these two girls come from, a friendship is soon forged between them. Unable to bear the thought of No not having a home or a family to keep her safe, Lou persuades her reluctant parents into letting her new friend stay with the Bertignac family. No's addition to the household forces Lou and her parents to face the sadness that has been enveloping them for so long — but not without some disruptions along the way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very touching story I really enjoyed this story. It was a very touching friendship forms between two girls who couldn't be more different. I felt like this book was tugging on my heartstrings the whole time. I thought all of the characters in this story brought something different to the book which made it very interesting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the read! A great yet sad story about two girls from very different backgrounds, Lou and No. who develop an unusual friendship. It's refreshing to read a YA book like this not set in America.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the read This book tried so hard to convey deep messages about helping those in need and never giving up on people, but the whole time I was reading I was waiting for something interesting to happen. The end left me with more questions than answers- not about life, but about the plot. I didn't find No and Me to be at all relevant and it was not even worth reading.
