Going in to When We Collided, I knew it would be a different read than her first two books. I knew that it tackled a difficult subject and portrayed a character living with a mental illness. But what I didn’t know was how deeply the story of Vivi and Jonah would move me. It’s a difficult story to read at points, but also an important one. I’ve never read anything that dives so deeply into the meaning of mental illness and how it affects not only the person living with it, but the people in their lives.
Emery Lord’s writing is evocative and all-encompassing. Her ability as story-teller is taken to a whole new level in this novel.
What I loved most about this book was that it was equal parts Vivi’s AND Jonah’s story. I adored the dual point of view and truly believe that it further strengthened the narrative of the entire book. We don’t just get one side of the story, we get two, and in this book in particular, I feel that hearing those two voices was vital to my reading experience. I got to know Vivi and Jonah so intimately through Lord’s writing and am so blown away by how she was able to craft two extremely distinct voices into a single story. The flow was seamless and the transition from one point of view to the other was effortless.
Speaking of point of view, as much as I was invested in Vivi’s story, there was something about Jonah that just spoke to me. I have a feeling it’s because we’ve both experienced the same tragedy in our lives, so I felt a kinship towards him. But, I just couldn’t stop myself from yearning for Jonah to find a way through his OWN grief. The last chapter of this book is from Jonah’s perspective and it absolutely SLAYED me. I was in tears. It was beautiful.
When We Collided will forever stay with me as a reminder that no matter how messy life gets, there will always be people I love surrounding me and ready to hold me up.
In her third book, Emery Lord created the kind of story that her fans know and love her for, but also a story that needs to be read. Her words are thoughtful, informative and passionate, and it all comes together in the most beautiful way.
Don't let the 3 star rating deter you, I just don't think I'll reread it and even though I'm glad I finished the book there were several times I almost didn't.
Rating: PG-13 (profanity, the characters have sex but it's not at all graphic)
This book was by no means perfect. The instalove was real and sometimes the relationship angst got to be a bit much. But overall I really adored these characters and I thought they were very realistically portrayed.
Vivi and her mom just moved to Vera Cova, a small town in California, when she meets Jonah. (This is where the instalove comes in.) Jonah recently lost his father and is trying to take care of his siblings and mother, who is struggling with depression.
Vivi Alexander is vivacious, high on life, and she has a bipolar disorder. She’s got this artistic soul, she can be selfish, immature, and so I can understand why some people don’t like her or can’t sympathize with her. But I do think Vivi is an amazing portrayal of a teenage girl living with bipolar disorder. Then we have Jonah Daniels. I adored him and his family. Jonah has five siblings and I loved how each of them had their own distinct personalities and their dynamic with each other. I also enjoyed how loud they were and their love for food.
Lord managed to paint this vivid portrayal of mental illness and I liked how it was talked about so openly (because this needs to be talked about). We got to see two different sides of it. Someone living with it firsthand and someone living with it through a loved one. I also thought the ending was so perfect for the characters. (view spoiler)
Filled with vivid characters and one of the best depictions of mental illness, this book can get frustrating at times, but it’s honest and I recommend it.
