We Are Okay

We Are Okay by Nina LaCour

Publication Information:  New York, NY:  Dutton Books, 2017

Summary:  You go through life thinking there's so much you need...  Until you leave with only your phone, your wallet, and a picture of your mother.

Marin hasn't spoken to anyone from her old life since the day she left everything behind.  No one knows the truth about those final weeks.  Not even her best friend, Mabel.  But even thousands of miles away from the California coast, at college in New York, Marin still feels the pull of the life and tradegy she's tried to outrun.  Now, months later, alone in an emptied dorm for winter break, Marin waits.  Mabel is coming to visit, and Marin will be forced to face eveything that's been left unsaid and finally confront the loneliness that has made a home in her heart.
