Only Mostly Devastated by Sophie Gonzalez

Only Mostly Devastated by Sophie Gonzalez tells the story of Ollie, the protagonist of the novel, who experiences a family emergency and thus has to move from sunny California to North Carolina. When Ollie is in North Carolina, he meets a person named Will and often hangs out with him over the summer. But, when school begins, he finds out that Will is a different person. The likable fellow he previously knew is now a jock, basketball player, and Ollie is unsure how to act around him. Ollie ends the novel by claiming that so much has changed over the school year, and maybe he’s right.
