This month's stand-out book is We Are Okay by Nina LaCour. It's the kind of book that's subtly laced with secrets and backstory and slow reveals, fluttering back and forth between the now and then, making you want to race through the pages to discover what happened, while simultaneously offering up poetic, heart-wrenching narration that makes you want to slow down and savor each word and revelation. We Are Okay is deeply worth the read. It's also worth a re-read.
I have read and enjoyed all of Nina's novels to date, beginning with her debut, Hold Still. Check out my reviews of Everything Leads to You and The Disenchantments.
