Staff Reviews

During winter break her college freshman year, alone in upstate New York (instead of home in San Francisco), our hero muses and slowly, gently reveals her past. Here is an exploration of grief, betrayal and, most importantly, reconciliation. Exquisitely written and, for me, one of the year’s most deeply affecting YA novels. Grades 8 and up.

— Ga

We Are Okay tells the story of 18 year-old Marin who, months after enduring a tragic loss, must confront the life she ran away from when her best friend comes to visit her. Nina LaCour’s sincere and beautiful prose captures the grief, heartbreak, and hope of the story, reminding us all to fight hard for the people we care most about. One of the most cathartic cries I’ve had from reading, I adore this book.
