I thoroughly enjoyed this contemporary offering from Lynn, as it is my favorite genre to read. In many ways, I could relate to the main character Callie's "lostness" throughout the book. In less capable hands, Callie might have come across as boring or self-centered, but instead, as the plot unfolds, Lynn shares with the reader how Callie's indecisive nature is merely a product of her circumstances and the fullness of Callie's character is realized. We learn through both her inner dialogue and her relationships with others how her behavior is simply a manifestation of being true to herself. Her story arc, therefore, is less about growth than it is about self-actualization, something many young people struggle to achieve.
Lynn tackles a lot of big topics in this book: death, loss, love, bullying, and abuse. Each affects the characters in different ways and because the book is told in rotating chapters between Callie and Jamie, we get a broader view of these effects as the plot twists and turns.
The setting of this book was surprisingly refreshing and for me was another well-developed character added to the mix. The sleepy gulf coast beach town was the perfect backdrop for the storyline and I love how Lynn incorporated so much of beach life into Callie's life.
In all, We Thought We Were Invincible was a terrific read, and I am anxiously looking forward to book two in the series. Highly recommend to fans of YA contemporary.
This story was a batch of surprises. Only a few were enormous, most were five-degree surprises (I expected something to happen, but it was five degrees off my expectation). That said, the journey was quite enjoyable. The pace was high along with the emotions, which is typical for a YA book, but I was swept up in the story. It was interesting how when the point of view switched, the other character seemed so much stronger than when in their point of view. That smacks very much of reality.
The BIG surprise 2/3 of the way in was just that, a SURPRISE. I did not see it coming at all. I thought someone would die, probably of cancer. What actually happened was unexpected. It probably helped that I knew only the blurb from the jacket prior to reading this.
This book reached out and grabbed me, demanding to be read. I'm glad I did, though I'm on the fence about reading the sequel. It was set up in the final chapter well, but a ten-year jump seems jarring to me. We will see. For now, this was a great ride.
Wow I didn't know what this book was about when I agreed to read it but boy am I glad I did agree to read it.
It was emotional straight from the start willing you to read more. I couldn't put it down loving everything about it. Callie was like a lost soul not needing anyone or anything, not even her twin Colby. Her best friend Jay was leaving and it was breaking her in half. His brother Jamie was Colby's best friend but all him and Callie did was argue, he just didn't get her or she didn't get him.
This book was so easy to read and lose yourself in, I've never cried so many times as I did with this book. The emotion was so charged in it yet it was real and needed.
Michelle has such a great way of writing the emotion she uses you can really feel how everyone felt it was unbelievable, she is brilliant with the style she uses. The more you read the further you are dragged in feeling part of it, knowing how Callie, Jay, Colby and Jamie feel and how real everything is.
I was taken in and pulled along the journey with them all, it was a roller coaster of emotions that bust through every page in the book with so many twists and turns you got caught up in it as if it was happening to your best friends who were Callie and Jamie.
You felt an emotional connection willing everything to be okay and for them to find what they were looking for and yet had never found. Could they really do what they wanted?
I would recommend this book to everyone that likes a love story, more a romance between friends. I loved everything about it and I can't wait for the next book in the series to find out what happens next. Totally worth every emotion you feel reading it and every tear shed for them, utterly brilliant.
