An Off Year by Claire Zulkey

Cecily shows up for her first day of college and does something unusual: she turns around and heads back home. She isn't sure why - and at the end of the book I was still feeling a little confused about it myself. The book is written in realistic prose similar to John Green, but not quite as entertaining. Nevertheless, this book will find an audience with fans of Looking for Alaska or How To Say Goodbye In Robot. Grade 9+
