Descrizione

Two best friends grow up — and grow apart — in this innovative contemporary YA novel

Told in dual timelines — half of the chapters moving forward in time and half moving backward — We Used to Be Friends explores the most traumatic breakup of all: that of childhood besties. At the start of their senior year in high school, James (a girl with a boy's name) and Kat are inseparable, but by graduation, they're no longer friends. James prepares to head off to college as she reflects on the dissolution of her friendship with Kat while, in alternating chapters, Kat thinks about being newly in love with her first girlfriend and having a future that feels wide open. Over the course of senior year, Kat wants nothing more than James to continue to be her steady rock, as James worries that everything she believes about love and her future is a lie when her high-school sweetheart parents announce they're getting a divorce. Funny, honest, and full of heart, We Used to Be Friends tells of the pains of growing up and growing apart.

    The book was okay but not great.
    The characters, to me, seemed kinda shallow, and the story got really tired somewhere along the way.
    While skipping back and forth in time in the story might work well in some stories, I don’t think this one work great, because it didn’t seem to have a real point to why it skipped from one time to the next.
    The skipping also imo didn’t work very well with the media of an audiobook, because it made it harder to remember when you were in the story and every part didn’t necessarily touch base on the relationships between the leads.

    That being said, the story was about how easily two people can slide apart if they don’t keep working on not doing so by communicating and being honest. And both sides kind of blames each other in some way or another.

    Was not a fan the over use of the word nerd and dork made me think this was written by a child
