Waiting on Wednesday: When We Were Them by Laura Taylor Namey

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine where we highlight some of the upcoming books we can't wait to read! 


Title: When We Were Them

Author: Laura Taylor Namey
Publication Date: November 2nd, 2021

Summary: When they were fifteen, Willa, Luz, and Britton had a friendship that was everything. When they were sixteen, they stood by one another no matter what. When they were seventeen, they went through the worst. And when they were eighteen, Willa ruined it all. Now, the week of graduation, Willa is left with only a memory box filled with symbols of the friendship she has nearly destroyed: A book of pranks. Corsages from a nightmarish homecoming. A greasy pizza menu. Greeting cards with words that mean the world... It’s enough to make Willa wonder how anything could tear her, Luz, and Britton apart. But as Willa revisits the moments when she and her friends leaned on one another, she can’t avoid the moments they leaned so hard, their friendship began to crack. As Willa tries to find a way back to Luz and Britton, she must confront the why of her betrayal and answer a question she never saw coming: Who is she, without them?

As I'm sure everyone reading this knows, I am a huge fan of Laura Taylor Namey's work. I absolutely loved her debut novel, The Library of Lost Things, and her sophomore novel from last year, A Cuban Girl's Guide to Tea and Tomorrow, was one of my favorite reads of 2020. So once I found out that she had a new book coming out this year, obviously I added it to my TBR and have been eagerly anticipating it! So if you'll excuse me, I'll just be over here counting the days until November...
