First Look: We Are Okay


 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. [via GoodReads]

It’s the smallest hardcover book I own! [to date, at least.] seems like a pretty short and quick read. I’ll take what I can get after reading the burning trash heap that was Our Own Private Universe. Of course, there’s one book ahead of it currently as I WAS going to start reading it today if it had arrived in the mail yesterday but alas, it did not.
