When We Collided by Emery Lord
When Vivi and her mom moved to the small coast town of Verona Cove for the summer, she never expected to fall in love. But she does. She loves the town and its people, and she loves Jonah and his big, broken family. Since losing his father six months ago to a heart attack, and then his mother to grief and depression, Jonah and his five siblings have been struggling through on their own. Vivi seems to be the answer to Jonah’s prayers, with her plans and energy and love. But there such a thing as too much happiness? Vivi is hiding a secret that threatens everything she and Jonah have built together.
This is a frank and realistic look at grief and mental health that is recommended for high school and up.
