We Are Okay is the newest book by Nina LaCour and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I was surprised at how small the book it was for the type of heavy material it was covering. I really enjoyed the way the story was slowly revealed; it had me very invested. I did feel like the story could've been longer than it was.
My rating: 3.5 stars
Summary from Goodreads:
You go through life thinking there’s so much you need…
Until you leave with only your phone, your wallet, and a picture of your mother.
Marin hasn’t spoken to anyone from her old life since the day she left everything behind. No one knows the truth about those final weeks. Not even her best friend, Mabel. But even thousands of miles away from the California coast, at college in New York, Marin still feels the pull of the life and tragedy she’s tried to outrun. Now, months later, alone in an emptied dorm for winter break, Marin waits. Mabel is coming to visit, and Marin will be forced to face everything that’s been left unsaid and finally confront the loneliness that has made a home in her heart.
