From the award-winning author of Hold Still comes an achingly beautiful novel about grief and the enduring power of friendship.
Marin hasn't spoken to anyone from her old life since the day she left California with only her cell phone, wallet, and a plane ticket. No one knows the truth of those final weeks of summer, when everything changed. Not even her best friend Mabel, whom Marin has completely shut out. But even from thousands of miles away, at college in New York, Marin still feels the pull of the life and tragedy she's tried to outrun. Now that winter break is upon her, and the campus has emptied, Mabel is coming to visit. Marin will be forced to face everything that's been left unsaid for months and finally confront the loneliness that made a home in her heart years ago.
Gorgeously written and achingly honest, Nina LaCour's We Are Okay is a tale of friendship, love, and transformation in wake of tragedy.
