Read full description of the books We Are Okay:"You go through life thinking there’s so much you need. . . . Until you leave with only your phone, your wallet, and a picture of your mother."
Marin hasn’t spoken to anyone from her old life since the day she left everything behind. No one knows the truth about those final weeks. Not even her best friend Mabel. But even thousands of miles away from the California coast, at college in New York, Marin still feels the pull of the life and tragedy she’s tried to outrun. Now, months later, alone in an emptied dorm for winter break, Marin waits. Mabel is coming to visit and Marin will be forced to face everything that’s been left unsaid and finally confront the loneliness that has made a home in her heart.

Of Hold Still, Nina says:
“This book is about loss, and it’s also about art. The loss part comes from a classmate’s suicide. I didn’t know him well, but learning of his death remains one of the most profoundly sad and confusing events of my teenage years. The art part comes from my mother, a high school photography teacher. A girl in one of her student’s photographs inspired the character of Ingrid. While I was writing, I learned how to develop and print black-and-white photographs in a darkroom.”
Nina lives in Oakland, California with her wife and their two cute cats. Visit her online at www.ninalacour.com.
