Synopsis: Jonah Daniels has lived all seventeen years of his life in boring, run-of-the-mill, Verona Cove. The only cataclysmic change in the town? His father’s death. Coping with his death isn’t easy, especially when he has a family to care for. The pressure is stifling.

That’s when chirpy, radiant Vivi Alexander comes in. She’s new to the town. And she just might be exactly what the Daniels need in their life.

Review: Jonah Daniels is breaking under the weight of caring for his siblings and ill mother. On top of that he also can’t cope with his father’s death. Sooner rather than later Jonah will snap. So when the vibrant, unfiltered tornado in the form of a gorgeous girl named Vivi quite literally walks into his life, everything changes. She’s different. She’s funny. And she makes his family smile. She makes him happier. But can they really last forever? Especially when Vivi has her very own demons lurking just around the corner of the restaurant he works at.

When We Collided is a really great emotional read stocked with endless humour, ceaseless emotions, and heart palpitating scenes that will have you trembling on the edge of your seat.

This book features depression as well bipolar disorder. The author gives readers an insight into what these two difficult mental illnesses are about and what living and coping with them can like.

If you’re searching for a book to make you laugh and sob simultaneously, look no further.
