I have had the pleasure of following Christy Sloat’s writing career and it astonishes me how much she has grown as writer. Who We Were speaks volumes to that statement.
Who We Were is a story that everyone can relate to no matter if you are 15 or 45. It is so easy to put yourself into Sadie Peter’s shoes and immerse yourself in her life. High School is tough. Your world is changing. You are growing up and expanding your horizon. Sometimes this journey leads you to new people and experiences as you out grow and leave behind others. Sadie is learning this first hand during the summer before her senior year. As Sadie attends summer school to lighten her class load for next year, she decides to meet new people and reinvent how she and others see herself. Of course this doesn’t happen without creating ripples in her existing pool of relationships. That summer turns out to be a life altering experience for Sadie and those around her.
Who among us hasn’t been through a similar situation? This story takes a realistic view at growing up, growing apart, and growing into the person you were meant to be. This book has staying power. It will never go out of style. Who We Were deals with such a relevant topic; you will be able to recommend it for generations.
With Who We Were, Christy Sloat has shown the publishing world that she has what it takes to be a writer and contender in multiple genres. Christy has grown as a writer and it clearly shows in her latest work. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this writer.

I am in awe of how Christy can write a story that speaks to my heart. Sadie is a girl who embodies the very meaning of endurance. From wanting to rescue what's left of a friendship to falling for someone who may disappear like the lazy summer days. It's a story of empowerment, self direction, and love in every way possible. A must read... get your tissues ready, you're going to need them.
