My rating: 5 of 5 stars
We Go Together is a beautifully written story of friendship, growth, and acceptance.
de Niverville approaches Kat’s trauma in such a respectful and heartfelt way that feels so true to her character. Kat is tortured, partly by herself (“No wonder this had happened to me.”) and partly by those around her.
As Kat navigates her internal turmoil and reconnects with old friends she thought she’d lost, she comes to find her strength and resilience.
“Sometimes I wondered if I’d ever been what everyone else saw.”
The storytelling is raw and introspective; there is no sugar-coating of hard realizations and frank discussions of consent. That’s what made me fall in love with this book.
Kat is an amazing character, even if it takes her some time to come to that realization.
“I was a dandelion. They could cut me down repeatedly and I’d always grow back.”
