Up and Coming: We Are the Goldens by Dana Reinhardt

If you like your books to feel like a day in the life of someone real, take a look at Librarian M's latest pick. 

We Are the Goldens by Dana Reinhardt

Release Date: May 27, 2014

Nell Golden has always looked up to her older sister Layla, and now that Nell is starting high school she can’t wait to spend all day basking in her sister’s glow. It turns out, however, that Layla has a secret that is keeping her from spending much time with the family. Once Nell finds out what the secret is, she agonizes over what to do with the information.

Although Layla’s secret is somewhat sensational, this is a quiet book. Nell hangs out with her best friend Felix, joins the school play, makes some mistakes, and deals with the pain of feeling her sister grow distant. She has a realistically rocky transition into high school and is very relatable. Pick this book up if you want some low-key high school drama.
