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.
"I didn't even like her in that moment, but something drew me to her. That mouth. So sweet. It wasn't the first time my lips acted independently of my mind. In fact, that was how I usually operated. But not with her. Now with my best friend's sister, the girl my brother loved."
This was a YA contemporary story about a girl called California.
Callie was an okay character, and I felt quite sorry for her in the way she had lost her mother at such a young age. It was nice that she had a twin brother and best friend for support though, especially when things got tough. Jamie was a bit of a tormented character at times, and I liked that we got to see things from his point of view as well as Callie's.
The storyline in this was about Callie's life working at her dead mother's cafe, and we got a romance developing between Callie and Jamie - her best friend's brother, and her brother's best friend. To start off they weren't really friends, but things changed, and it became clear how they felt about each other, and they did make a really cute couple, even if it did look like there'd be trouble because of their siblings and their feelings.
We did get quite a shocking storyline in here though, which could be a bit of a sensitive subject for some people. The story was enjoyable overall though, although the pace did seem a little slow in places.
The ending to this was not really a happily ever after, but it was an interesting end to the story. The author's note does promise a sequel though!
