We Were Never Here: A Novel

We rated this book:


Emily and Kristen have been best friends for ten-plus years. Every year they go on a trip to an exotic location. They are in Chile when Kristen claims a backpacker attacked her in their room and she killed him in self-defense. The crazy thing is almost the exact same thing happened to Emily on their trip last year. They have no choice but to get rid of the body and make it appear that We Were Never Here. When Emily gets back home, Kristen shows up out of the blue and tries to keep Emily close, inserting herself into all of Emily’s relationships. Emily is beginning to realize her relationship with Kristen might not be healthy, and soon she’ll discover how unhealthy it really is. How far will Emily go to protect herself and those she loves, even when it’s someone she loves that’s doing the damage?

If you’ve ever felt bad that you don’t have a best friend, read this book and you’ll be glad you keep people at arm’s length. It was an interesting look at unhealthy relationships but from a friendship angle instead of romantic. If you enjoy thrillers, then I recommend this book.
