Books On Our Radar: We Come Apart
by Sarah Crossan & Brian Conaghan
We Come Apart by Sarah Crossan & Brian Conaghan is one of those books that I know just from the cover and the blurb that it will hit me right in the feels, and lately, I am all about the contemporary feels. Like give it all to me. Make me cry. I don’t know why the big switch in genres for me, but usually I would say about only 10% of my list was contemporary, and for the past 6 months it is probably more like 40% contemporary and 60% fantasy (and no I didn’t look it up or do the math, just guesstimating). Both of these authors are new to me, and I am also genuinely curious to read a book in verse. Be sure to add this one to your TBR as you wait patiently for June 13th!

From two acclaimed authors comes an emotional story told in verse about friendship, love, and overcoming unbeatable odds.
Authors Brian Conaghan and Sarah Crossan have joined forces to tell the story of Nicu and Jess, two troubled teens whose paths cross in the unlikeliest of places.
Nicu has emigrated from Romania and is struggling to find his place in his new home. Meanwhile, Jess’s home life is overshadowed by violence. When Nicu and Jess meet, what starts out as friendship grows into romance as the two bond over their painful pasts and hopeful futures. But will they be able to save each other, let alone themselves?
For fans of Una LaMarche’s Like No Other, this illuminating story told in dual points of view through vibrant verse will stay with readers long after they’ve turned the last page.
