We Are Okay by Nina LaCour
As the rest of her dorm empties for winter break, Marin remains behind. She will be completely alone for a month, but first she has to get through three days with her best friend. It won’t be easy. Four months ago Marin left her hometown with no warning, fleeing from California to New York with nothing but the clothes on her back. Now Mabel is coming, even though Marin hasn’t responded to a single one of her texts or emails or voice mails. Mabel is coming, and Marin is going to have to face the horrible truth she has tried to leave behind.
Marin’s heartbreaking story is revealed in alternating stories of now and then. Recommended for high school and up.
