Perfect for fans of Becky Albertali's Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and A. S. King's Still Life with Tornado, this story of parallel time lines cleverly explores how our choices can change and shape us--as well as the ways in which choices don't change the core of our being at all.

When Chris Schweitzer takes a hit of whippets and passes out face first on the

I'm between 4 and 4.5 stars.

The tagline for this book says it best: "One broken nose. Two versions of the same story. Infinite possibilities."

It's the summer before college, before Chris and his two best friends, Wexler and Anna, all go their separate ways to different schools. One night, while doing a hit of whippets outside the restaurant where he works, Chris passes out face-first, breaking his nose. When his estranged father, a famous physicist in California, hears what Chris did, he demands

Okay... I really, truly enjoyed this one! This book has single-handedly gotten me out of my reading slump, and I am so, so pleased.

Many thanks go to NetGalley, Delacorte Press/Random House Children’s, and the author for the opportunity to read this ARC.

This novel was the equivalent of a mid-afternoon summer joy ride with a car full of your best friends. A humorous, memorable adventure of identity, friendship, summer-lovin', and of course, the humorous highs and lows of that critical summer between high school and college. I loved this start to finish.

This was such an interesting way to tell a story. One event splits into 2 outcomes and from there you have 2 stories. I liked that even though they were separate, they mirrored each other and some things happened the same. Either timeline, Chris had a lot of realizations and grew up over the summer. Things changed for him with his friends, even though he didn't want them to. Chris was pretty likeable, although sometimes he could be a jerk. This was fun and moved along well.

Chris passes out after huffing and sets in motion two alternating timelines which are fun and plausible. There’s divorce, friendships, blended families, lgbtq romance, friend drama, and that dreaded feeling of loss during the last summer before going off to college. What will the future hold for Chris in either timeline? So fun!

It’s rare when I come across a book that satiates both my love of geekdom and multifaceted characters. It’s been days since closing the last page and I still miss these people. I wish I savored the read, but I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Tebbett’s pacing and visceral language had me tasting the pavement.

I confess I was disappointed. This isn't supernatural or science fiction, it's just a story of how life can be different depending on a single fact.

Chris trips on the floor, almost breaking his nose. This is, if his mother finds out he's been tripping on whippets his last summer before college may be completely different. Narrated in alternate chapters we find out how both of his lives were, as he tries to overcome his issues with his estranged father and with his best friends, which may be a lo

Setting this aside.

I'm really not a huge fan of multiverse stories, tbh. If the idea of a Sliding Doors style story with a male main character appeals to you, then definitely check this out!

Thanks to the publisher for providing an advance copy for review!

An interesting premise, but it never really pays off.

Who wouldn't be curious about what might have happened if ... ?

I liked the back and forth between the parallel universes, but I kept waiting for something to payoff. For Chris to learn a lesson or something. But the one dimensional love interest and the unresolved issues with his dad just .... well, nothing happens at the end. There's no emotional or drama resolution. The book just ends because Chris has ran out of time. The pacing was way off

Please tell me I'm not the only one who didn't make the connection that the MC (Chris Schweitzer) has the same first name as the author (Chris Tebbetts). Please?

I didn't notice until I was a chapter in. Because I'm that smart.



I kind of which I had noticed the same-first-names thing before, though. It probably would have given me a better idea of what I was in for than the cool cover and intriguing blurb did.

Me, Myself, & Him is a split timeline tale of how one decision can have dramatically different results.

After Chris does whippets and passes out at work his life could take one of two paths: he lies and stays at home for the last summer before college or he gets found out and shipped off to his father's for the last summer before college.

Each timeline is revealed in alternating chapters which would not be so bad if both storylines were equally engaging and developed, but that is not the cas

This is definitely a guy read. I love me some female YA authors, but let's face it. Guys sometimes do a better job of writing guy characters. I will most certainly recommend this book to my students - guys and girls.

Chris is probably one of two characters in the book that I liked (Gina is the other one). Chris is authentic - his snarkiness, his anger, lying to his parents - sounds like a character that many teens can relate to. Several times while reading Chris's inner thoughts, I laugh

I received a free copy of this e-book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you net galley!

Truth be told, I did not like this book. I had a very hard time getting into it and I struggled to find the motivation to continue reading. The way the book was set up simply made me very not interested in it. I did not like that each chapter essentially had two chapters in it, one version for each of the two storylines that was being told.

I think the premise behind the book is great, and I love the idea

Chris Tebbett's Me Myself & Him is a lovely book, all about the time between the end of high school and the beginning of college. When doing whippets with a friend after his summer job, Chris, the main character, passes out and ends up in the ER. He must decide whether to tell the truth about what happened or to lie. By using an alternate timeline, Tebbetts is able to create a wonderful tension between the Chris who stays home in Ohio, lying about how he ended up in the ER, and the Chris who ...more

This was definitely a new spin I wasn't expecting. The alternate, yet sometimes coincidental timelines made the book interesting, yet it also made the book disconnected for me. I was way more invested in the timeline where Chris goes to live with his dad. I enjoyed the character building in that storyline and felt like it was more developed. I was actually kinda disappointed going to the other timeline. Maybe the romance was just more my style right now.
I enjoyed the read, it was easy-going and

I’m really torn between a 3 and 4 star rating for this and I could insert a horrible joke about the infinite possibilities that could lead to me changing it but for now I’m just going to stick with the 3.

“Me, Myself and Him” follows Chris down two very different paths following his accident after a whippet gone wrong and in each we see how the very idea of change, be it with his social circle, his fathers upcoming wedding or his very self can be impacted by any number of decisions he encounters

Meet Chris, a recent high school graduate, whose summer takes a turn. Readers dive into a storyline centered around the consequences of Chris’s whippet use. Yes, whippets. In both timelines, Chris suffers from a trip to the ER, leaves with a broken nose/bruised face and no idea how he’s going to explain the accident to his mother and somewhat estranged father.

In one universe, Chris’ whippet use and bruis

Imagine you make a stupid mistake and you have to pay a high consequence for it. Now imagine you make the same stupid mistake and you seem to get away with it. This is what is happening with Chris Schweitzer. The summer after his senior year was supposed to be the best. It was supposed to be him and his two best friends, Wexler and Anna, doing absolutely nothing but hanging out. However, Chris makes the dumb mistake of taking a hit of whippets, he passes out and face-plants int

Trigger Warning: Substance abuse
Trigger Warning: Child abuse (the father slaps his son once, I’m not sure if that’s on the same level as child abuse but 🤷🏻♀)

This was my first time reading a book with a multiverse. It’s an interesting concept and plot, but it wasn’t for me. I found it too confusing reading two different stories in one chapter.

OK So as per usual with review were doing, general thoughts, ups, then downs. So generally I did enjoy this. It wasn't something that WOWed me but I wasn't underwhelmed either. I adored formatting and was so happy to get an arc of this.

So for what I enjoyed: I thought the main character was honestly really good for this story. He was a complete asshole without being nonredeemable. He reacted to situations appropriately and was just super realistic. In addition, as I said earlier, I adored the fo

This was an absolute ride and I really enjoyed it.

The idea of bouncing back and forth between two parallel realities after face-planting on concrete while doing whippets is hilarious and oh so fun, and thankfully, really well done. While dual-timeline stories are often quite difficult for me to follow, especially when they contain shared characters, thi

Me Myself & Him follows Chris during the summer before his Freshmen year of college. After an accident with whippets that results in a broken nose, the story splits into to parallel universes. In one, Chris’ parents find out what happened and he’s forced to spend the summer with his estranged father, a famous physicist in California. In the other, Chris remains at home to spend the summer with his best friends, Wex and Anna, who start dating.

When Chris Schweitzer takes a hit of whippets and passes out face first on the cement, his nose isn't the only thing that changes forever. Instead of staying home with his friends for the last summer after high school, he's shipped off to live with his famous physicist but royal jerk of a father to prove he can "play by the rules" before Dad will pay for college.

Or . . . not.

What I Liked
Chris is the typical stupid teenager doing stupid teenager things, but he's still very relatable--who among us hasn't done a stupid thing? The splits between Chris A and Chris B are done very well, although sometimes you can't really tell who is who when you start. I don't know if it was my e-book version, but it seemed like some chapters were in a larger or smaller font depending on who was the viewpoint character. I'm not sure if this is the case in the printed book, but if so, tha

In his new book, Me, Myself, and Him, Chris Tebbetts’ writing is so smooth and his voice so distinct, you cannot help but go where his prose takes you. After an accident of his own making, Chris Schweitzer, the protagonist, finds himself living two scenarios, one with his mother in Ohio and the other with his father in California. Resentment toward his father and a changing relationship with his two best friends derail his plans to savor the last summer before college. I really love how seamless

Thanks to Net Galley and Delacorte Press for providing me an early copy of this book to review! It was a wild ride, honestly. Throughout the book, we get these two different realities for Chris without really knowing which is the real one until the end. The way that Tebbetts weaves these two realities is genius; he drops subtle hints that you don't really pick up on until Chris starts talking about alternate timelines. 

In terms of characters, Chris

After finishing Me, Myself and Him I felt unsatisfied; there were many times while reading this that I wanted to DNF it but kept pushing myself through it. Prior to reading this work by the author I had only read his middle grade titles that were co-authored, and this book which is supposed to be YA doesn't feel like on ...more
