In this high concept YA novel debut that's We All Looked Up meets The Sun Is Also a Star, three teens must face down the mistakes of their past after they learn that life on Earth might end in less than a week. News stations across the country are reporting mysterious messages that Earth has been receiving from a planet--Alma--claiming to be its creator. If they're being interpreted correctly, in seven days Alma will hit the kill switch on their "colony" Earth. True or not, for teenagers Jesse Hewitt, Cate Collins, and Adeem Khan, the prospect of this ticking time bomb will change their lives forever. Jesse, who has been dealt one bad blow after another, wonders if it even matters what happens to the world. Cate, on the other hand, is desperate to use this time to find the father she never met. And Adeem, who hasn't spoken to his estranged sister in years, must find out if he has it in him to forgive her for leaving. With only a week to face their truths and right their wrongs, Jesse, Cate, and Adeem's paths collide as their worlds are pulled apart.… (mere)

DNF @ 35%

Prior to 2020, the only books I intentionally did not complete were those that left me so baffled or bored that each page caused me pain. These were the books that could put me to sleep mid-sentence, or that I couldn't find a single thread of plot or character to hold onto. Religiously, I finished books that were only slightly better, holding onto a hope that was rarely—no, more like never—realized.

I can do better with my time.

I've finally committed to allowing myself a little more freedom to let go. (Don't worry, I have no intention of becoming a chronic DNFer.) Unfortunately, I Hope You Get This Message is the first victim of this harsher criteria. One month ago, I would've pushed ahead, and I'm sure I would've probably given this book a reluctant three stars in the end. Instead, I'm deciding to throw in the towel.

Here's why I picked up this book: 1) The cover is very intriguing and eye-catching; Kudos to its designer; 2) The premise of this book sounded wonderful: a distant planet has decided to pull the plug on its colony—earth—and three teens whose paths cross must face truths and right their wrongs.

There's so much potential there.

And instead, what I found, was a juvenile story that had zero relevance up to the point I gave in. The world is ending and what do these teens want to do? They want to go to parties, and confess to those they've crushed on all of six weeks, and get drunk. I thought this was supposed to be the generation that was to give humanity hope—that's what I'm told every time I log onto Twitter. I didn't see the soul searching I hoped for. These teens are greedy, and they're frankly kind of boring. As the story rotates between these protagonists, I had trouble recalling what they'd been doing in the last chapter I saw them in. They made no impact on me whatsoever.

Also, the alien dialogue reminded me of something out of an Ed Wood movie.

This isn't a terrible novel, by any means. On the positive, the premise is strong and the characters have interesting traits and backstories. At the same time, I think the writing is sophomoric, the characters are flat, and the premise isn't fully realized. Maybe the story gets better, but given my record, I doubt it. And certainly, no matter what happened, this just wasn't one that was ever going to be great. Fortunately, I'm not the intended audience: I'm a forty year old dude who gravitates toward big-L literature, so take my opinion as someone who never owned a fidget spinner and who thinks any 90s hip-hop artist is superior to any radio-hit rapper of today.

Do teenagers actually use the phrase "Working hard, or hardly working?" That's something I expect from men twice my age who think they're hilarious, but definitely are not.

7 days until the end of the world. Maybe. I Hope You Get This Message is the journey of three teens Jesse, Cate, and Adeem, the end of the world, and the chooses they make when they might only have only 7 days left.
I love Jesse, Cate, and Adeem. I was so wrapped up in them and their personal journeys. Adeem was my favorite. He is so sweet and caring. His love of antique radios was such a unique part of his character. I learned some really intersecting radio facts from him. I connected with his character the most because he was nerdy and his close relationship with his sister reminds me of the one I have with my own brother. Cate's character was so strong and I loved how devoted she was to her mother. Jesse was the hardest character from me to connect with but then again his character doesn't want you to connect with him. Jesse wants to go it alone or thinks he does. I am not going to say anymore because I want you to get to know these three and fall in love with them yourself.
I couldn't put this book down. The writing was amazing. All the character's voices were so them that I never got confused about who's Point of View I was reading. Every character in this book was so realistic. I loved the messages that the author included that random people had sent to people they love or hate after hearing the world was ending. Rishi captures humanity at it's best and worst. This book is full of heartbreak, beauty, and hope.
