We are seventeen and shattered and still dancing. We have messy, throbbing hearts, and we are stronger than anyone could ever know…

Jonah never thought a girl like Vivi would come along.

Vivi didn’t know Jonah would light up her world.

Neither of them expected a summer like this…a summer that would rewrite their futures.

In an unflinching story about new love, old wounds, and forces beyond our control, two teens find that when you collide with the right person at just the right time, it will change you forever.

3 Reasons You Should Read

When We Collided by Emery Lord


  • When you pick up a book by Emery Lord there’s a certain set of expectations that come with it. You expect characters you’ll fall in love with, you expect writing that vividly paints you a picture, you expect emotion, and you expect swoon. When We Collided gives you all that and so much more. Our expectations were definitely met.
  • Reading in multiple points of view is hit or miss for us. Sometimes we love it, sometimes we don’t. But in this one it’s a definite hit. We love hearing from both Vivi AND Jonah. And actually, we feel like we needed to hear from both of them to fully understand their journey. While we have a special place in our hearts for Jonah, we also enjoyed being in Vivi’s head.
  • One of our favorite things that Emery does is realism. This story definitely gives you a real look at mental illness. It’s raw. And it’s perfect. Teens need that. Adults need that. WE need that.
