We Were Young By Cat Clarke

Four Stars

This is the first book by Cat Clarke that I’ve read and thought that the plot and storyline were very good. What I was a bit disappointed with was that the sixth word in the book was an ‘f’ word and that by the end of chapter 1, our young female protagonist had drunk excessive amounts of alcohol and had meaningless sex.

We Are Young

The storyline is full of modern issues, such as parents’ divorces, sexual orientation, music etc. One

of the main issues this book deals with is suicide and death and coping with the death of a young person and how it affects their family.

The main characters are well developed and we get to ‘see’ inside their heads. Most are likeable, except the one or two we’re not supposed to like.

I would say that this is written for the older teenager.
