We Come Apart
- By: Sarah Crossan, Brian Conoghan
- Narrated by: Rosie Jones, Oliver Hembrough
- Length: 3 hrs and 40 mins
Jess would never have looked twice at Nicu if her friends hadn't left her in the lurch. Nicu is all big eyes and ill-fitting clothes, eager as a puppy, even when they're picking up litter in the park for community service. He's so not her type. Appearances matter to Jess. She's got a lot to hide. Nicu thinks Jess is beautiful. His dad brought Nicu and his mum here for a better life, but now all they talk about is going back home to find Nicu a wife. The last thing Nicu wants is to get married. He wants to get educated, do better, and stay here in England.

Fantastic quick read. A touching story written in verse, showing the difficulty of immigration, & the naïvety and beauty of young love.
