Free download We Are Okay Read We Are Okay 107 Nina LaCour Ü 7 Read You go through life thinking there’s so much you needUntil 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. This is the kind of book I want to write Which is a pretty big thing to say I supposeWhat I really appreciated was that Nina LaCour abandoned the idea that a novel has to be entirely plot driven This is a book about relationships and emotions and I liked being caught up in Marin s brain I loved that it took place in winter on an abandoned university campus where everything amplified Marin s feelings of emptiness and isolation I like that things like being coloured or ueer were present but not plot devices It all felt real and relevant I also and I cannot emphasize this enough loved Nina LaCour s use of technology I ve made a video all about this but I m really irked by teenager representation that doesn t involve the internet or cellphones Here it was masterfully intertwined It never took me out of the story it made it feel grounded and real I also loved that the book was short It told it s story and then it stopped It never dragged or wasted time I love brevity what can I say I also really enjoyed that there was lots of cross generational relationships teenagers parents grandparents because sometimes YA feels like a bizarre teen only worldI m giving this 4 stars because I don t think it was my perfect book I think some of Marin s reactions to things were overly angsty and that there weren t many powerful moments I said this is the type of book I want to write because it felt like something that Nina LaCour poured herself into something subtle and strong a message she wanted to share It isn t a new favourite for me but I appreciated it lots

Free download We Are Okay Read We Are Okay 107 Nina LaCour Ü 7 Read 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. We Are Okay is a book about learning the people you used to love were something beyond what you believed them to be It is a book about learning to move on It is a book about learning to be with yourself and be with your grief It is also a book about loneliness deep and profound loneliness cloying and suffocating In clearer terms this is a book about Marin a girl who has lost her grandfather and in doing so pushed away her former best friend Mabel So when Mabel comes to town Marin does not know what to do with the memories Marin at once does not want Mabel here regrets her being here but also desperately wants Mabel to love her She has walls up and she wants them down but she is too terrified for them to ever come down Marin has lost everything including Mabel her best friend and her maybe something But it s not a romance between Marin and Mabel That is what is perhaps the saddest part I once saw Nina LaCour talk live about this book and she said something that perfectly sums up what is so arresting about this book being ueer and in love with your best friend is different than being straight and in love with your best friend One is an experience in first love and one is also that but with an added experience of fear not of rejection but of disgust We do not want to hurt our best friends by loving them We have learned to be ashamed of love and we carry that with us through thick and through thin If only I had something to take the edge off the loneliness If only lonely were a accurate word It should sound much less pretty Loneliness is not a ueer only experience not by any means that would not be a fair claim But being ueer is a loneliness experience We are all in our own ways not a part of the norm not a part of the life others are allowed We find our own lives in the cracks and spaces I could say the night felt magical but that would be embellishment that would be romanticization What it actually felt like was life Marin says of her first and only date with Mabel And in the wake of losing a grandfather of losing the only person she has ever been raised by Marin has found herself caught in a trap of being alone she cannot rekindle a friendship with Mabel because their history screams too loud None of this is stated in We Are Okay but the idea of loneliness is perhaps the most consistent fact of the story whether alone or with Mabel Marin is always lonely She is always lonely until she and Mabel finally discuss and unpack their history and move on to a future where they can both heal as friends if not as lovers We Are Okay is not an action packed story and it is not in your face and it will not make you scream at One Specific Significant Line It is a book to feel a book to hurt and a book to heal I ve been trying to understand for months how I felt about this book because I think sitting on something like this is absolutely essential We Are Okay is an incredibly slow an incredibly uiet an incredibly subtle story but thinking back on my experience reading it two years ago I feel like crying It means the world Blog Goodreads Twitter Youtube
