When We were Worthy
A win brought them together, but loss may tear them apart.
When the sound of sirens cuts through a cool fall night, the small town of Worthy, Georgia, hurtles from triumph to tragedy. Just hours before, they’d watched the Wildcats score a winning touchdown. Now, they’re faced with the deaths of three cheerleaders—their promising lives cut short in a fatal crash. And the boy in the other car—the only one to survive—is believed to be at fault. As rumors begin to fly and accusations spin, allegiances form and long-kept secrets emerge.
At the center of the whirlwind are four women, each grappling with loss, regret, shame, and lies: Marglyn, a grieving mother; Darcy, whose son had been behind the wheel; Ava, a substitute teacher with a scandalous secret; and Leah, a cheerleader who should have been in the car with her friends, but wasn’t. If the truth comes out, will it bring redemption—or will it be their downfall?
My thoughts: This book was interesting, to say the least! It is an engrossing story of three girls who's lives have been cut short and what happened leading up to their tragic deaths that affects those left behind. I thought it was a unique story, though a bit disturbing. Marybeth does a great job of keeping the reader engaged until the very end.
This book is geared towards high schoolers, with it's language and some of the subject matter.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
