Swoon Thursday is a hot meme hosted by the fabulous ladies at YA Bound!

This week, my swoon is from Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum!
(Note: I took out the boy's name! The mystery must remain alive, given the specific premise of this book.)
"Three? I don't have a three. My head is still spinning."
"I have one."
"Go for it."
"Three: I want to kiss you, like, very much, please."
"You do?" I ask.
"I do," he says, and so I turn toward him, and he turns toward me, and even though we are in this random IHOP and our table is full of the bizarre array of uneaten foods [redacted] has ordered to allow us to keep our table for the past three hours - pancakes, of course, but also pickles and apple pie - everything falls away.
It is just him and me, [redacted] is [redacted] is [redacted] and Jessie is Jessie is Jessie, ad his lips touch mine.
But sometimes a kiss is not a kiss is not a kiss. Sometimes it's poetry.
- ARC, page 325
That is the last scene, the last lines of the book. I found that I couldn't not pick a scene from this book, even though there was a lack of PHYSICAL swoons in this book. It was very swoony in a non-physical way, this story. I ADORED this book. Seriously, go see how much I loved it. I'm not a YA contemporary person (usually) but this book was quite good!
