I should’ve kept my mouth shut.

But Wilmont Academy’s been living in the Dark Ages when it comes to sex ed, and someone had to take matters into her own hands. Well, I’m a kick-ass coder, so I created a totally anonymous, totally untraceable blog where teens can come to get real, honest, nothing-is-off-limits sex advice.

And holy hell, the site went viral—and we’re talking way beyond Wilmont—overnight. Who knew this town was so hard up?

Except now the school administration is trying to shut me down, and they’ve forced Dean—my coding crush, aka the hottest guy in school—to try to uncover who I am. If he discovers my secret, I’ll lose him forever. And thousands of teens who need real advice won’t have anyone to turn to.

Ask me anything…except how to make things right.

My Thoughts

ASK ME ANYTHING by Molly E. Lee is a perfect example of why I continue to love reading young adult books as an adult. It's smart. It's thoughtful. And it deals with real issues that teens experience every day. In the book description Amber says "I should've kept my mouth shut." I'm so glad that she didn't. 

What I loved:

  • Families who communicate and support each other - Amber and her parents; Dean and his siblings
  • The thoughtful blog posts and the intention behind them  
  • The friendship and relationship between Amber and Dean 
  • How empowered Amber feels as she continues to answer questions on her blog  and how she begins to take her own advice to heal herself
  • All of the code speak and the challenges and how Amber and Dean admired each other and pushed each other to be the best
One of my favorite moments is when Amber's mother describes how her relationship changed from friendship to more. I won't go into details because this is something that readers need to experience for themselves, but it is hilarious to me and made me laugh out loud.

Favorite Quotes:

"Don't ever Google anything with  . . . " She huffed. "Just don't Google. It's dangerous."


"He's perceptive and kind and funny. And when he holds my hand or when I hug him, it's like being underneath my favorite blanket and skydiving at the same time." 

ASK ME ANYTHING is so good. It's smart and it's funny. It tackles serious topics while still being a love story that you can swoon over.
