We Were Here by Daisy Prescott

In the 90s … 
texting involved paper and a pen …
… our selfies were Polaroids ...
… our favorite music was on mix tapes.
Sex was dangerous, music was raw, and falling in love felt nostalgic.
We were friends and lovers.
We thought we knew everything. 
We knew nothing.
We were here.

Set in the early 1990s, a time before the internet, social media, and smart phones, We Were Here is the prequel to Geoducks Are For Lovers. This book can be read as a standalone. 

"This story has it all! Just like a mixed tape; we get a dose of steamy romance, angsty ballads and sweet love songs woven together in a compelling, heartwarming and sometimes heartwrenching journey of self-exploration." 
Helena Hunting, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

We Were Here is available for purchase:

This story felt just like a 90s mixed tape, as Helena Hunting said! You've got a sprinkling of everything but it all makes sense and means something. I read this book as a standalone, not having read Geoducks Are for Lovers, but I definitely enjoyed it. It was a bit slow to start but it really started to roll around half way into the novel. From that point onwards, I couldn't put the book down. You really get a feeling for the bond that's forged between these friends who met in college--they do say you make your best friends there and friendships that last a lifetime. This is a storytelling of just that. You go through the love, the angst, the drama, the awkwardness, the everything that these new adults went through. A great story telling for sure. I also suggest that you create a playlist of the songs at the head of each chapter--great listening while you read :D
