When We Fell Apart

Yu-jin is gifted.
Yu-jin is loved.
Yu-jin is flourishing.
Yu-jin is dead.

Min Ford is searching for his place in the world. The Los Angeles native moves to Seoul to connect with his Korean heritage and find the sense of belonging that he’s never quite felt before.

His girlfriend, Yu-jin, is a student at a prestigious Seoul university and has excellent grades, good friends and a bright future ahead of her. When the police inform him that Yu-jin has taken her own life, he’s sure it can’t be true. He throws himself into finding out why she could have secretly wanted to die. Or did she?

The more he learns, the more he doubts he ever really knew her at all. And some people would rather keep it that way.

For fans of Celeste Ng, this is a profoundly moving and suspenseful drama that untangles the complicated ties that bind families together – or break them apart.

'Takes on the friction between family bonds, cultural expectations, and personal desires in a way that feels both urgent and intensely real . . . For me the true heart of the book was Min, and his search for a sense of belonging that neither America nor Korea is quite able offer him. His story is truly unforgettable'Abi Daré, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl with the Louding Voice
