Product Details


“Mixes teenage drama with a combination of mystery and thriller, concocting a novel for readers who enjoy their books on the darker side. . . The eerie lake setting seems to hide secrets of its own, augmenting the tense and mystery-laden atmosphere. With a strong emotional core connected to friendship, love, and familial relationships, this is the right novel for those who are just as invested in character development as the mystery itself.” Booklist

“Perfect for those who reminisce on the melancholic feelings [of] John Green’s Looking for Alaska. . . . The non-chronological timeline cleverly bolsters the mystery. . . . Taylor’s characters know there is no beauty in the truth, but perhaps that’s when we need to face it the most.” USA Today

“Eerily atmospheric . . . Realistic . . . Poignant.” Kirkus Reviews

“Grace’s arrestingly written personality, and the years the protagonists spend together eating oysters at night on the roof of the local hotel, leaping off cliffs into the lake, breaking into a boathouse to sneak champagne, and watching outdoor movies under the stars [are] the heart and soul of this atmospheric read.”Publishers Weekly

“New friendships, secrets, and disappearances. . . . Readers will see themselves in the hard choices the characters are forced to make, even if at times, those are not the best for them. Recommended for fans of E. Lockhart.” SLJ

Moody, atmospheric, and shimmering with the bright secrets of adolescence and the hard truths buried beneath, Who We Were In the Dark is the kind of novel that will keep readers turning pages long past bedtime. —Kit Frick, author of I Killed Zoe Spanos
