"Nell Golden expected that once she started going to the same high school as her adored older sister, Layla, they'd grow even closer together. Instead, Layla becomes suddenly distant. When Nell learns the troubling reason for Layla's suspicious behaviour, she's faced with the choice to either keep Layla's secret or reveal it -- and she knows that both choices could be seen as betrayal. Written in the form of a confession from Nell to Layla, We Are the Goldens is a poignant coming-of-age story as well as an intimate look at the damaged but fiercely loving relationship between two sisters."

A quick and addicting story about truth, secrets, and growing up. The growth and change seen in the characters is a perfectly captured snapshot of what it means to create your own person, think for yourself, and discover high school.
