“Who we were had washed away with the summer. Who we are was yet to be seen.”
Summer school at Alcott High was only supposed to gain Sadie Peters extra credit, nothing more. Her goal wasn’t to make friends, or gain the attention of the most popular football player, yet she managed both. Her life was cruising along on course … until that summer.
Could a simple stint in a different school change her identity completely and introduce her to love for the first time? How would that affect her relationship with Lily, her best friend?
Hopefully their friendship was strong enough to make it through the tumultuous summer. Sadie learns that great things come with change, but sometimes memories of the past are hardest to part with.



This is only the second book I have read by Christy and I loved it.

Whilst I don’t fit the demography of a Young Adult *cough* I’m in my 30s *cough*, I still love to  read books in this genre.

Who we were is a great coming of age story. Christy does a great job with her characters who are instantly relatable and likeable at the same time and also well developed.

This story is about Sadie surviving her summer classes whilst falling in love – with the wrong guy then finding the right one. It also covers her friendship with her best friend Lily, who I didn’t like from the get go and how that changes with the progression of the story. Nash and Nolan were strong characters as well and I was Team Nolan from start, there was just something off with Nash 🙂

I loved this book,  it was a fast read and I could’t put it down and come the end I had a warm fuzzy glow for Sadie. If you are looking for a great wee love story I highly recommend this (if YA is in your genre)

5 stars


I am Fee, a 30 -something SAHM bookworm! I love to read, and will read almost anything and everything. I am not afraid to try new genres of books and my main genre is horror, thriller.
