Summary

Seventeen-year-old Jonah Daniels has lived in Verona Cove, California, his whole life, and only one thing has ever changed: His father used to be alive, and now he is not. With a mother lost in a deep bout of depression, Jonah and his five siblings struggle to keep up their home and the restaurant their dad left behind. But at the start of summer, a second change rolls in: Vivi Alexander, the new girl in town.

Vivi is in love with life. Charming and unfiltered, she refuses to be held down by the medicine she's told should make her feel better. After meeting Jonah, she slides into the Daniels household seamlessly, winning over each sibling with her imagination and gameness. But it's not long before Vivi's zest for life begins to falter. Soon her adventurousness becomes all-out danger seeking. Through each high and low, Vivi and Jonah's love is put to the test...but what happens when love simply isn't enough?

Wow. This story is a feast

I'm a grandmother and I loved every moment of this "young adult" novel. It dealt lovingly with real life issues and left me with tears and laughter

first audiobook I actually was able to finish

I have struggled to finish audiobooks in the past, preferring to read over listen. This one kept me hooked and I feel like even though it's labelled as young adult fiction, older people will enjoy the story and characters just as much as teens.

When We Collided by Emery Lord

Would you consider the audio edition of When We Collided to be better than the print version?

Never read the print edition but LOVED the audio version!!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of When We Collided?

Jonah Daniels is one of six children in a family struggling with the sudden death of a beloved father and a mother who can't get out of bed due to her deep grief. Into Verona Cove, Vivi bounds in and falls in love with Jonah and each of the Daniels children. As Vivi's love of life, excitement, and adventure patches up the Daniels family, Jonah finds hope, love and healing with Vivi. I could not stop listening to this audiobook (I kept finding reasons to walk, exercise or just sit and listen) that was gripping, heartbreaking and true. Vivi, narrated by Elizabeth Evans was funny, sensitive and kind while Jonah narrated by Raviv Ullman was shy, hopeless, and ultimately changed as a result of knowing and loving Vivi. What will the future hold for these two seventeen year old teens with seemingly insurmontable problems? A must read for those who love romance, struggling teens, and family problems. Can't wait to read Lord's, The Start of Me and You, bring on the romances with lots of drama!!!

Which scene was your favorite?

AWESOME

amazing take on a struggle that doesn't get nearly enough literature. pulse narrator's did a very good job of bringing the characters to life. and the author wrote a wonderful, and balanced story between two characters

Pleasant Surprise

I wasn't expecting to enjoy this as much as I did! This book pulls you into its characters and boldly illuminates mental illness and loss in a heart-wrenching and relatable way. If you're a sucker for romance, this is just the book for you. I simply adore the ending. It is wholly satisfying.

it was a good read

it was narrated very well in the storyline was very beautiful but I still think it could have been happier. I'm not sure I would read any other of the author's books but this was a really good one.

A beautiful story

This was perfect. I loved every character. The ending was emotionally difficult to get through, but so necessary to end the story perfectly. The author really provides great insight on mental health and grief through incredible character development. Highly recommend.

Great YA novel

Written from two perspectives, this book was an emotional and touching novel about young love, hardships and life. The topics of depression, death, and mental illness were at the heart of this story about living life to the fullest.

Cute but boring

I like the idea of the story, but there's not much going on. Maybe cause i had just finished 13 Reasons Why and nothing really is going to compare to that one... I wanted another story that resonates and thought ok, this girl is bipolar and the boy just lost his dad... this should be good... but it was just kinda boring.. Maybe good for a teenager who has never had a relationship with a boy like Jonah...
