In the tradition of Sarah Dessen, this powerful debut novel is a compelling portrait of a young girl coping with her mother’s cancer as she figures out how to learn from—and fix—her past.

Few things come as naturally to Harper as epic mistakes. In the past year she was kicked off the swim team, earned a reputation as Carson High’s easiest hook-up, and officially became the black sheep of her family. But her worst mistake was destroying her relationship with her best friend, Declan.

Now, after two semesters of silence, Declan is home from boarding school for the summer. Everything about him is different—he’s taller, stronger…more handsome. Harper has changed, too, especially in the wake of her mom’s cancer diagnosis.

While Declan wants nothing to do with Harper, he’s still Declan, her Declan, and the only person she wants to talk to about what’s really going on. But he’s also the one person she’s lost the right to seek comfort from.

As their mutual friends and shared histories draw them together again, Harper and Declan must decide which parts of their past are still salvageable, and which parts they’ll have to let go of once and for all.

In this honest and affecting tale of friendship and first love, Emily Martin brings to vivid life the trials and struggles of high school and the ability to learn from past mistakes over the course of one steamy North Carolina summer.





Emily Martin grew up in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan. She attended graduate school in North Carolina, where she fell in love with sweet potato pancakes, deep fried pickles, and the boy who later became her husband. Emily now lives and writes in Boston, Massachusetts. The Year We Fell Apart is her first novel. You can find Emily online at EmilyMartinWrites.com, or follow her on Twitter @ThatEmilyMartin.





 I read this around two months ago and this book got me out of a book hole when I finished Tell Me Three Things.  This book I remember was amazing! Its a wonderful romance about first love, friendship, forgiveness, and second chances. 

This story also delete with the loss of a parent it didnt shy away from deadly illness etc.   It showed a range of ways we deal with loss. 

The character's have flaws which just make them feel and sound more real.  If your looking for a book for teens about having another chance at first love then this is the one for you.  The story was fast paced and just breathtaking.  The author did a wonderful job about giving us their history a little at a time.  It made you want to read the story faster and faster but also sad that it was going to end.  Its just one that you pick up and don't put down until your done.  Then you hug it and kiss it goodnight.   Because you loved it so much!   

This is the prefect story about second chances and forgiveness in the light of first love.  If your looking for a teen romance then pick this one up.  

And well if your looking for one with a little more graphic then check out

Both of these books were amazing and very close in that second chance at first love story.  Just where this one is more teen based Bully is um not. lol.
