We Come Apart - Sarah Crossan, Brian Conaghan

Staff Pick

When Jess and her fellow truant friends get caught shoplifting, all of the blame somehow falls on Jess’s shoulders. In order to avoid jail time, she finds herself forced to join a program for juvenile delinquents. She’s miserable until she bonds with Nicu, a Romanian immigrant who, like Jess, has suffered from domestic abuse and severe bullying. Thanks to their shared pain, they begin to stand up for each other and truly discover themselves along the way. When things take a turn for the worse, however, Jess and Nicu have to decide if it’s time for them to stand alone. Told in striking verse in alternating voices by authors Sarah Crossan and Brian Conaghan, We Come Apart (Bloomsbury, $17.99) offers a unique view into the very raw, very real experiences plaguing teens today. Ages 14-18
