A wonderful emotional rollercoaster of a novel about two young men, each on a journey of discovery. It’s part coming-out story, part falling-in-love story, part relationship breakdown story, part extended Greek family story. It’s warm and funny, a little bit heartbreaking, and completely satisfying.
‘The enormous heart of We Could Be Something beats with a rare, thrilling authenticity. Every funny, smart, tough word of it rings true. I loved this book.’ – Patrick Ness, bestselling author of A MONSTER CALLS and the CHAOS WALKING series
Part coming-out story.
Part falling-in-love story.
Part falling-apart story.
