Product description

Product Description

“I guess that’s the thing about high school reunions, though. They make you snap a little.”

In the ten years since high school graduation, Maylee’s career, living arrangements, family, and especially her love life are at a standstill. When her twin brother, Mitch, falls for her high school enemy at their ten-year reunion, Maylee’s life is catapulted into chaos.

Maylee’s hatred for the blonde-haired Josephine isn’t the only thing she discovers at her reunion. Benson Drake, the introvert from high school, has matured into a sexy intellect. Now a writer and bartender, Benson’s grown into a man with a perfect balance of quirky wit and sex appeal. After a wardrobe malfunction, a spy mission gone wrong, and a dangerous cup of coffee, Maylee and Benson explore something they never even thought about during senior year. Along the way, they find out that reconnecting with the past can change you… or maybe just help you find your true self.

4.0 out of 5 stars Going back to school 1 March 2017
By TLT - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If there ever was a person who would never attend their high school reunion, well, that would be me. And apparently Maylee. I felt a kinship toward her immediately given that fact. In fact, I even have a girl I went to high school with that, if my brother hooked up with her (not that it's possible, but you know, hypothetically), I can't say that I would be that happy with it either.

That's where the similarities between me and Maylee stop. (Well, no, we have an affinity for Poe too.) But her story keeps on going, the story of learning to love again, accepting the cards she's been dealt, and rolling with them or standing up for herself to change them. It's a story of growing up. A story of continuous education--only this time navigating relationships with land mines scattered at her feet. And learning to leave the past where it belongs, in the past.

There were parts of this book that were downright hilarious, and other parts where I had to suspend disbelief a bit. Overall, though, this is true to Lindsay Detwiler books--you'll be uplifted. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll learn an important lesson. Cause sometimes we all just need to be schooled again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who We Were doesn't determine Who We Are today! 2 March 2017
By BookLover - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Lindsay Detwiler's moving novel, Who We Were, focuses on the ultimate mean girl Josephine and the truly terrible tricks she played on the nerdy Maylee in high school. Despite the ten years since high school, Maylee has not been able to forgive or forget Josephine. When a relationship develops between Maylee's twin brother and Josephine, Marlee's angst is palpable. The novel is a grown up look at how we learn to adjust to what we can't change for all of the characters. The ending is nicely written, even bringing a tear to the reader's eye. A great read!
5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful read 12 July 2017

I'm a huge fan of Sophie Kinsella and this book is right up there with hers. It was funny, it was sweet, it was sad, and made me want to scratch Josephine's eyes sometimes. Great characters, great story. And even though my once-bullied self wanted a very different ending for Josephine, the story couldn't have ended any better. Bravo Mrs. Detwiler!

Did you have an awesome high school experience? Well Maylee didn't and she is determined to never forget just how she was treated by her archenemy Josephine. Through an unexpected and unwanted turn of events after her ten year reunion, Maylee must face some hard decisions regarding her perception of life.
Who We Were is a hearfelt, humorous story of Maylee's journey to find her true self. Amazingly written; so many laughs and tears in one book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Funny! 26 February 2017

Lindsay continues her streak with another relatable and humorous book! I felt a special connection to the Maylee's nerdy past and feelings of being looked over as a high school girl, and I think most anyone will find a character in here that they can relate to being or knowing. I would highly recommend this story!
