Friday Memes: We Come Apart by Sarah Crossan and Brian Conaghan

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

You have to be quick,
none of this pretending to be browsing business
that some shoplifters go for.
Friday 56:
Dawn drags her chair so close to mine
our knees touch.
"So, Jess,
how are things going?"
This week I am reading We Come Apart by Sarah Crossan and Brian Conaghan. Here is the description from Amazon:
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 slowly blossoms into romance as the two bond over their painful pasts and their hope and dreams of a better future. But will they be able to save each other, let alone themselves?

This illuminating story told in dual points of view through vibrant verse will stay with readers long after they've finished.


  1. This sounds kind of interesting. Enjoy your current read!

  2. You have me curious for more! Happy weekend!

  3. I read a similar Crossan novel that was told in verse as well last year and I really enjoyed it. It is such a refreshing style of writing. I hope that you enjoy this one. :)
