Cori McCarthy delivers an emotionally taut page-turner from multiple points of view – combined with stunning illustrations.

Jaycee is about to accomplish what her older brother Jake couldn't: live past graduation.

Jaycee is dealing with her brother's death the only way she can – by re-creating Jake's daredevil stunts. The ones that got him killed. She's not crazy, okay? She just doesn't have a whole lot of respect for staying alive.

Jaycee doesn't expect to have help on her insane quest to remember Jake. But she's joined by a group of unlikely friends – all with their own reasons for completing the dares and their own brand of dysfunction: the uptight, ex-best friend, the heartbroken poet, the slacker with Peter Pan syndrome, and... Mik. He doesn't talk, but somehow still challenges Jayce to do the unthinkable-reveal the parts of herself that she buried with her brother.

Cori McCarthy's gripping narrative defies expectation, moving seamlessly from prose to graphic novel panels and word art poetry, perfect for fans of E. Lockhart, Jennier Niven, and Jandy Nelson. From the petrifying ruins of an insane asylum to the skeletal remains of the world's largest amusement park, You Were Here takes you on an unforgettable journey of friendship, heartbreak and inevitable change.

I loved each character and found what they were going through true to teenagers today. Jaycee has been a daredevil ever since she lost her ol...

1.0 Review: You Were Here
I received a copy from Netgalley. I got this through one of those read now for the first 500 member emails. I must admit I went into it knowing very little about it, other than a glance at the blurb. Unfortunately, this book was not for me at all. Just didn't like it. The story did nothing for me an...

[I received a copy of this book from NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.]An OK read, but one that ultimately didn't leave much of an impression on me.It seemd interesting at first—although, as usual in such cases, I don't really see the point of having a first person narrative for one chara...

3.0
What initially attracted me to this novel was the fact that it described accounts of urban exploration. From an artistic and architectural point of view, I think urban exploration is a fascinating and intriguing albeit dangerous sport; and I was truly interested in seeing how its highly sensorial el...

3.5 Falling out of my Mouth
Best part, Mik and Zack. Hands down.You Were Here wasn’t exactly what I expected it to be. First, it jumped around with POV’s, which I didn’t expect. It was also made up of art, and graphic novel pages, which I didn’t expect either. I ended up really liking it though, which was good since I was nerv...
