A year ago their lives were changed forever.

Calla Jensen, a college freshman at University of Alabama, can’t move on. Her loss of faith in God, and in herself, has her frozen and stagnant. But time doesn’t stop for any one, and no matter how much she fights it, making new friends and leaving her past behind is inevitable.

When her college roommate drags her to an event on campus, she doesn’t expect to come face to face with the person whose life she almost ruined. Old wounds open up and together they must come to terms with the events that led to three best friends being torn apart.

But Calla has been keeping something back, and it could destroy the fragile ties she is slowly building back with the people she loves. Can faith be renewed and can God help her heal?

What happened the day everything fell apart?

Book Reviews

Book Review: What’s Left of Us by Michele Tucker

What’s Left of Us is a new adult novel filled with a good mixture of suspense and sweet romance. I like the way the story is told from the alternating perspectives of Calla, Beck and Asher (who have been neighbors and the best of friends since grade school) and the way it weaves from past to present.

Early on, readers learn that something has happened to tear the trio apart but must read about 80 percent of the book before finding out exactly what. Tucker did an amazing job of building suspense, touching on seemingly smaller issues up until the big reveal. I kept trying to guess what could have happened to dissolve such a tight-knit group and felt frustrated at times because I wondered if the explanation would be worth the wait.

It was definitely worth the wait. Even though the big reveal tore my heart out, it explained everything. I understood all of Calla’s anxieties, and I understood why her loved ones kept telling her that she needed to move on.

Favorite Quote:

“…God always has a plan. Sometimes, we throw him a curveball or two, but in the end, He is the best catcher to have on your team.”

If you enjoy clean new adult novels written with a lot of heart, you’ll likely enjoy What’s Left of Us.
