    "Short, poetic and gorgeously written. . . . The world LaCour creates is fragile but profoundly humane." —The New York Times Book Review

    "A beautiful, devastating piece of art. . . .
    An extraordinary work." —Bookpage
    You go through life thinking there's so much you need. . . . Until you leave with only your phone, your wallet, and a picture of your mother.

    Marin hasn't spoken to anyone from her old life since the day she left everything behind. No one knows the truth about those final weeks. Not even her best friend Mabel. But even thousands of miles away from the California coast, at college in New York, Marin still feels the pull of the life and tragedy she's tried to outrun. Now, months later, alone in an emptied dorm for winter break, Marin waits. Mabel is coming to visit and Marin will be forced to face everything that's been left unsaid and finally confront the loneliness that has made a home in her heart.

    An intimate whisper that packs an indelible punch, We Are Okay is Nina LaCour at her finest. This gorgeously crafted and achingly honest portrayal of grief will leave you urgent to reach across any distance to reconnect with the people you love.
