When We Were Them by Laura Taylor Namey

16 November, 2021

Book cover has a young woman walking in water up just above her ankles. She is holding a box in her arm that she is opening. High above her there is an image of that is upside down. There is water at the top of the book and there are two young people standing in that water each with a book in their hand that they seem to be reading.When We Were Them by Laura Taylor Namey
Atheneum Books for Young Readers

When they were fifteen, Willa, Luz, and Britton had a friendship that was everything.

When they were sixteen, they stood by one another no matter what.
When they were seventeen, they went through the worst.
And when they were eighteen, Willa ruined it all.

Now, the week of graduation, Willa is left with only a memory box filled with symbols of the friendship she has nearly destroyed: A book of pranks. Corsages from a nightmarish homecoming. A greasy pizza menu. Greeting cards with words that mean the world… It’s enough to make Willa wonder how anything could tear her, Luz, and Britton apart. But as Willa revisits the moments when she and her friends leaned on one another, she can’t avoid the moments they leaned so hard, their friendship began to crack.

As Willa tries to find a way back to Luz and Britton, she must confront the why of her betrayal and answer a question she never saw coming: Who is she, without them?
