Who We Were by Lindsay Detwiler


In the ten years since high school graduation, Maylee’s career, living arrangements, family, and especially her love life are at a standstill. When her twin brother, Mitch, falls for her high school enemy at their ten-year reunion, Maylee’s life is catapulted into chaos.

Maylee’s hatred for the blonde-haired Josephine isn’t the only thing she discovers at her reunion. Benson Drake, the introvert from high school, has matured into a sexy intellect. Now a writer and bartender, Benson’s grown into a man with a perfect balance of quirky wit and sex appeal. After a wardrobe malfunction, a spy mission gone wrong, and a dangerous cup of coffee, Maylee and Benson explore something they never even thought about during senior year. Along the way, they find out that reconnecting with the past can change you… or maybe just help you find your true self.

Length: 215 pages

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

My Comments (no spoilers): I'm a huge fan of Sophie Kinsella and this book is right up there with hers. It was funny, it was sweet, it was sad, and made me want to scratch Josephine's eyes sometimes. Great characters, great story. And even though my once-bullied self wanted a very different ending for Josephine, the story couldn't have ended any better. Bravo, Mrs. Detwiler!
