Sept. 24—We Should Hang Out Sometime, by Josh Sundquist

Josh Sundquist Hello Book Club Learners! Please be prepared to talk about our next book, We Should Hang Out Sometime: Embarrassingly, a True Story , for our next Book Club! We will read up to page 92. From : " Sundquist, even though he is a YouTube star, has managed to turn a somewhat embarrassing story into a funny, touching book about the anxieties that come with fancying someone and not knowing how to tell them, or getting up the courage to tell them and facing rejection. Overall, he has written a heartwarming story, taking a good look at himself and the insecurities he internalises, as well as at his projects. This is a great read for young adults who want a romance without the romance, but with many laughs." He is also a motivational speaker, stand-up comedian, and paralympian .
