We Come Apart by Sarah Crossan & Brian Conaghan
My Rating: ★★★★☆

* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and Bloomsbury in exchange for an honest review*

When I first requested We Come Apart from NetGalley I had absolutely no idea it was written in free verse, or what free verse even was for that matter, I’d seen the book on someone’s Twitter or Instagram account (although I really don’t remember who’s) and I really liked the synopsis and wanted to read it. So it’s fair to say that when I started reading it, I was a little surprised with the way the book was written, a little is probably an understatement actually, I was really confused at first. For those of you like me that have absolutely no idea what free verse is, here’s a little description… Free verse is an open form of poetry, who knew? (If you’re still confused just search free verse online, it explains things much better than I can). Not only did We Come Apart totally surprise me with the way it was written but, it seriously surprised me that I absolutely loved the way it was written, see poetry isn’t really my thing, like at all, but I adored this book.
