Publisher's 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.

    "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.

    "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!!!

    "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.

    Story
    "The manic side "

    When We Collided was a good read. I have to say, though, that I was a little disappointed at the end, but honestly, not all endings are wonderful. I like that it was realistic. I think the author did an absolutely amazing job of portraying bipolar disorder, particularly the manic side of bipolar disorder, when she wrote Vivi. It is not easy to portray such a strong personality, especially one that includes pretty severe bipolar behavior, but I think she nailed it. I really found myself loving Jonah and his siblings. I had a hard time deciding if I wanted to check this one out and found that it was worth it. See for yourself!

    "A great read and audible experience"

    I really enjoyed this book more than I was expecting to. The performance really made the choice of audible a great experience, rather than simply reading it.

    Overall the story felt very genuine. For talking about such heavy subject matter, it actually made me laugh a lot. If anyone you love struggles with the issues they mentioned, this book can really give a peek into what it's like to deal with great loss of loved ones and loss of self to the demons many must fight every day.

    Story
    "Wise and Insightful beyond their years"
    Any additional comments?

    I just finished the audio version of "When We Collided" by Emery Lord. I'm sure it would be classified a young adult novel, but no matter to me. Very well written story of a vivacious teenage girl named Vivi (yes, I did that on purpose) who is spending the summer with her mom in a small, California coastal town. Doesn't take long to figure out she is trying to manage bi-polar disorder without meds. She quickly enters the life of a teenage boy named Jonah whose father has died and mother can't cope - he's left with his older siblings to share the responsibilities of younger siblings. Vivi is a positive force in so many ways and all goes mostly well for quite a while. She and Jonah are wise and insightful beyond their years (of course - it's a novel). It's a very well thought out story with great characters and storylines. Ultimately, it's uplifting. The audio actors, Elizabeth Evans and Raviv Ullman, were a pleasure to listen to.
