Sixteen year old Solomon has agoraphobia. He hasn't left his house in three years, which is fine by him. At home, he is the master of his own kingdom - even if his kingdom doesn't extend outside of the house. Ambitious Lisa desperately wants to go to a top tier psychiatry program. She'll do anything to get in. When Lisa finds out about Solomon's solitary existence, she comes up with a plan sure to net her a scholarship: Befriend Solomon. Treat his condition. And write a paper on her findings. To earn Solomon's trust, Lisa begins letting him into her life, introducing him to her boyfriend Clark, and telling him her secrets. Soon, Solomon begins to open up and expand his universe. But all three teens have grown uncomfortably close, and when their facades fall down, their friendships threaten to collapse, as well. At turns hilarious and heartwarming, Highly Illogical Behavior showcases the different ways in which we hide ourselves from the world - and the ways in which love, tragedy, and the need for connection may be the only things to bring us back into the light.

T'was pretty decent


Loved the book, being a big fan of YA novels myself. It became very climactic but was a tad disappointed with how it all played out. Still written amazingly and creatively, really understanding the mind of a agoraphobic person.



My favourite YA book of 2016


Seriously my favourite young adult book of 2016, a book that explores mental health problems that don't magically get resolved through the power of love. Packed full of friendship, love, and growing up. The main character is brave, and so easy to love and relate to. I'll read it and cry all the tears again.
