A bright, poignant, and deeply funny autobiographical account of coming of age as an amputee cancer survivor, from Josh Sundquist: Paralympic ski racer, YouTube star, and motivational speaker.
Josh Sundquist only ever had one girlfriend.For twenty-three hours.In eighth grade.
Why was Josh still single? To find out, he tracked down the girls he had tried to date and asked them straight up: What went wrong?
The results of Josh's semiscientific, wholly hilarious investigation are captured here. From a disastrous Putt-Putt date involving a backward prosthetic foot, to his introduction to CFD (Close Fast Dancing), to a misguided "grand gesture" at a Miss America pageant, this story is about looking for love--or at least a girlfriend--in all the wrong places.
After having We Should Hang Out Sometime on my shelf for what felt like forever, I finally picked it up during my first week at college! Yes, I understand that was a while ago, but I’m finally gathering my thoughts to write the review now!
This story follows Josh’s quest for love. He looks over all of his past incidents with girls and tries to figure out what exactly went wrong with all of them. He even uses drawings, graphs, and charts to help try to explain and figure out what had happened.
We Should Hang Out Sometime was quite funny at times and I loved it to pieces. I loved hearing Josh’s thoughts on everything that happened and also really liked how he looked at himself differently in the end.
I usually don’t read nonfiction books, but I can honestly say that I’m glad I picked this one up. It was one novel that you honestly won’t forget!
