Book Review: We Are the Goldens

We Are the GoldensWe Are the Goldens by Dana Reinhardt
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Nell knows a secret about her perfect, beautiful sister Layla. If she tells, it could blow their world apart.

When Nell and Layla were little, Nell used to call them Nellaya. Because to Nell, there was no difference between where she started and her adored big sister ended. They're a unit; divorce made them rely on each other early on, so when one pulls away, what is the other to do? But now, Nell's a freshman in high school and Layla is changing, secretive. And then Nell discovers why. Layla is involved with one of their teachers. And even though Nell tries to support Layla, to understand that she's happy and in love, Nell struggles with her true feelings: it's wrong, and she must do something about it.

This was interesting and was very quick and easy to read. There was nothing particularly special about it, and nothing really big happens. But it was well written enough that I kept reading anyway. The ending was the worst, though. I was like, that's it? It was pretty lackluster, but then like I said, it's not like the whole book was action packed only to end bad. In the end, I think this book is quite forgettable, but is an entertaining distraction for the few hours it takes to read.
