Who We Were by B.M. Carroll
About The Book
Twenty years after they went their separate ways, friends and enemies are coming together for their school reunion. Katy, who is desperate to show that she’s no longer the shy wallflower. Annabel, who ruled the school until a spectacular fall from grace. Zach, popular and cruel, but who says he’s a changed man. And Robbie, always the victim, who never stood a chance.
As the reunion nears, a terrible event that binds the group together will resurface. Because someone is still holding a grudge, and will stop at nothing to reveal their darkest secrets…
Do you have good memories from school? If the answer is no, this is a book which will give you a few ideas if you ever plan a reunion! Not all of them are safe or innocent, but remember that dreaming is free!
Jokes a part, this had been an interesting read, so many different characters, colourful and with quite interesting lives, makes the story addictive and twisted. I loved how the story is written and I really couldn’t put it down. The story is told between the different characters, showing the reader their point of view and thoughts; not all of them will be likeable, but it makes the story more real.
The story is about a school reunion, something that could be really sweet takes a deep turn when secrets are revealed and an assault occurs. The main question will be who is trying to boicot the meeting and why? As you can imagine no one is free of guilt, but it will be on your hands deciding who is worth the redemption or guilty as charged.
This had been an amazing read, but at the same time it made me remember not so happy memories; sadly I don’t think there’s any class without a bully or someone that is taken for a “looser”, but I would like to think that now the teachers are more advised and try to stop it. In my case, the teachers were part of the problem making one of my friends to leave the school at the last year.
As I said, this is an amazing read, twisted and surprising. Any book addict will love it, but, be prepared for a school revival, it will depend on you if the memories are good or bad.
