We Are the Goldens by Dana Reinhardt Review

I received this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

Nell knows a secret about her perfect, beautiful sister Layla. If she tells, it could blow their world apart.
When Nell and Layla were little, Nell used to call them Nellaya. Because to Nell, there was no difference between where she started and her adored big sister ended. They're a unit; divorce made them rely on each other early on, so when one pulls away, what is the other to do? But now, Nell's a freshman in high school and Layla is changing, secretive. And then Nell discovers why. Layla is involved with one of their teachers. And even though Nell tries to support Layla, to understand that she's happy and in love, Nell struggles with her true feelings: it's wrong, and she must do something about it.


It sounded interesting so I decided to review this book even though I do not usually read contemporary young adults novels.

I liked this book. It is well writen and you can very well imagine everything. I liked that it was written entirely in Nell’s POV during her Freshman year of high school. 

All in all it is a good contemporary young adult book but personally it isn't something I would read again because it isn't a book that got me hooked from the very beginning . 
If you are into this genre you might enjoy it.

I give this 3 out of 5

This book will be out in stores May 27th 2014. You can pre-order We are the Goldens at Book Depository or any book stores
