Reviews When We Were Worthy

  • Chelsea Humphrey
    My first MBW novel was her previous book, The Things We Wish Were True (pub 2016) and I adored it! Being a fellow southern belle, Marybeth's writing feels familiar in an easygoing sense, and when I had the opportunity to meet her in Savannah later that same year, I was able to experience her warm heart and welcoming persona first hand. I've been hooked ever sense, and from the briefest of details that I was able to pry from her one year ago, I k...

    In my opinion, this book definitely did NOT live up to the hype or my expectations. When We Were Worthy is a small town atmosphere about three popular cheerleaders that are killed in a horrific car accident. The young boy driving in the other vehicle manages to make it out alive.. seriously injured but alive. This story is about the accident and how the town handles this situation including the mothers, cheerleaders, high school students, footbal...

    I live in a small town, though not as small as Worthy, the Georgia town portrayed in this novel. Worthy is a big football town, as is mine, but while the football players and cheerleaders rule the school in Worthy, I don't feel that was the case in my town. Three varsity cheerleaders, the cream of the crop, are killed in a horrific car accident. Theyoung boy driving the other car, seriously injured but still alive, becomes the focus of the towns ...

    Can we just take a moment to admire that gorgeous cover? Look at it! Stunning. I was powerless against it and had to give this one a shot. Small town Worthy, Georgia. Where football is huge, wins make your week and losses devastate. That's a lot of pressure to put on high school boys... and a huge ego rush when they succeed. But this story isn't really about those boys... it's about the girls, the cheerleaders.Three cheerleaders will remain forev...
    Worthy... a small southern town where football is everything and everyone knows the lives of everyone. Or so it seems! There are several secrets abound and many of them will come out as the town experiences the devastating deaths of 3 cheerleaders who perished in a car accident, on the way to a party after a victorious football game. The driver of the other car, a boy from the same school, is thought to be at fault. A tale told from several point...

    My first book by Marybeth Mayhew Whalen and what a tremendous story! She is a very talented author. The story takes place in a small town in Georgia. A devastating event occurs for the town and changes many lives forever. The story is told by 4 different people and each has something else going on in their lives (but are connected to the one big event.)The story is heartbreaking especially if you are a parent of a teen. It shows how one terrible ...
