Fave Character: Felix
What I Think: We Are the Goldens kept me hanging on until the last page. Nell navigates a difficult situation trying to keep the secret and trust of her sister, Layla. The ever evolving relationship between sisters and friends that results was realistically captured while also maintaining an air of suspense and more than one plot line along the way.
+ The book did not reveal all at once but rather in under-dramatized layers.
— In my opinion, the “My best friend is a perfect boy who I’ve known all my life but never considered romantically until now” trope is overdone.
Long Story Short: 7/10! ❤
