Review

A natural successor to Sarah Dessen's The Truth about Forever. . . . Lord explores the hardships in both Lucy's life and the lives of the people around her without forgetting about the joys of ordinary life, summer love, and the pitfalls of growing up, all while offering a beautiful, all-too-rare portrait of a religion that accepts instead of condemns. Comfortingly familiar, vibrant, and, at times, wrenching, this belongs on all shelves. (starred review Booklist)

Lucy's story, as well as those of the other Daybreakers, will ring true for kids trying to find peace among their own broken pieces. (BCCB)

This solid coming-of-age story with family drama and personal growth is a must-have for libraries with Jenny Han and Jennifer Niven fans. (School Library Journal)

Lucy's problems are delivered with sensitivity and originality, plus romance, intrigue, and a little bit of mischief. (Kirkus Reviews)

A vividly drawn novel of how we believe, how it changes, and how it changes us. In Lucy Hansson, Emery Lord gives us a narrator so vibrantly real that by the last chapter she felt like a friend I'd grown up with. Lucy's journey is as unforgettable as her voice. (Anna-Marie McLemore, author of Morris Award Finalist THE WEIGHT OF FEATHERS and National Book Award longlisted WHEN THE MOON WAS OURS)

This is more than a love story. When We Collided carefully yet effortlessly puts mental illness in conversation with the beauty and struggle of adolescence. It is a book I wish could have written, but am so much better for having read.

(Julie Murphy, #1 New York Times bestselling author of DUMPLIN’ and SIDE EFFECTS MAY VARY on WHEN WE COLLIDED)

Searingly honest, gut-wrenchingly authentic, and deeply romantic, When We Collided is a gift of a novel. It tackles tough topics with nuance, and will make readers both laugh and cry, sometimes within the span of a page. (Jasmine Warga, author of MY HEART AND OTHER BLACK HOLES on WHEN WE COLLIDED)

A five-star must-read romance for older teens (and up) that will challenge readers toward a better understanding of a too-often marginalized and stigmatized segment of the population, When We Collided is an important book not only for this generation of teens, but those who've come before . . . and those who will come after. (USA Today on WHEN WE COLLIDED)

An absolute tearjerker romance with a powerful message about weightier topics of grief and mental illness. (starred review School Library Journal on WHEN WE COLLIDED)

In sharp contrast to darker, more issue-driven YA books, this title keeps truer to the problems that most teens face. The protagonist's upbeat attitude will inspire readers to persevere even during the low points in life. (starred review School Library Journal on THE START OF ME AND YOU)
