We'll Never Be Apart
by Emiko Jean

Murder. 

Fire. 


Revenge. 


That’s all seventeen-year-old Alice Monroe thinks about. Committed to a mental ward at Savage Isle, Alice is haunted by memories of the fire that killed her boyfriend, Jason. A blaze her twin sister Cellie set. But when Chase, a mysterious, charismatic patient, agrees to help her seek vengeance, Alice begins to rethink everything. Writing out the story of her troubled past in a journal, she must confront hidden truths.


Is the one person she trusts only telling her half the story? Nothing is as it seems in this edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller from the debut author Emiko Jean.

Pages: 304

Expected Publication: October 6, 2015

Publisher: HMH Books For Young Readers


I've heard that We'll Never Be Apart  has a slight magical realism tint to it and that's what made me initially so interested in this one (not sure about this information though). I mean the blurb does sound really interesting (even though a slight We Were Liars vibe definitely is there), but the potential blurry line between reality and fantasy always makes me extra excited.

  1. Hmmmm I thought I'd seen this and decided I didn't want to read it, but I can't for the life of me figure out why because it sounds pretty good!

  2. This sounds like a mix of We Were Liars and Mara Dyer to me, which are both books that I love, so maybe this one could be great too! I love it when you can't really trust your narrator, when reality and fantasy are jumbled up. Great pick!

    1. I still have to read Mara Dyer, but I've heard it's a pretty captivating read :) I really love it too when unreliable narrators are included - makes everything so mysterious.

  4. Interesting... and yeah... it really does sound like a mix between quite a few YA books I've read. Did you read Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver? It's very interesting how some people are able to weave magical realism into a book and it seems just another part of reality and you don't even have to suspend disbelief. I like that. Happy Reading!

    1. I haven't read Vanishing Girls, but I'd really like to at some point :) I really enjoy talented writes how can weave magic seamlessly to their books too, it's a shame that more authors don't do it.

  15. I love dark reads especially psychological thrillers because I love to be kept guessing so this sounds awesome. The magical realism element reminds me of a movie I saw, I think it was Shutter Island? Definitely adding to my TBR!
