If you’ve been wanting to buy a ticket and hop on an emotional rollarcoaster, “We Could Be Something” by Will Kostakis is the book FOR YOU. Hitting the shelves in early-May, this title is written by the brilliant Will Kostakis – Australian author and journalist!
“We Could Be Something” follows Harvey and Sotiris.
Harvey dreams of breaking free from his life. But when the relationship between his dads breaks down, he’s hauled from Perth to Sydney to live on top of a café with the extended Greek family he barely knows – a family who are about to get some very sad news.
Sotiris has achieved his dream. He’s a published author at seventeen… but it kind of sucks. However, when he meets a bookseller named Jeremy, he discovers a new and unexpected dream. One he’s not sure he’s prepared for.
Harvey’s and Sotiris’s stories converge on the same street in Darlinghurst, in this beautifully heartfelt novel about how our dreams shape us, and what they cost us.
QBD’s fantastic Assistant Buyer – Dion – read (and loved!) “We Could Be Something” – here is what he has to say:
I don’t quite know how to describe this book. Kostakis builds a narrative of love and rips your heart out at the very end. This is my favourite book this year, and one of the best queer YA novels I’ve ever read. So full of heart and passion, two narratives are interwoven that explore identity, family, and trying to live life despite the obstacles that may come your way. Kostakis has written one of the most powerful narratives I’ve read in a long time, and the feelings I’m currently navigating are sure to linger for time to come. If this book isn’t on your TBR list for 2023, it needs to be placed there immediately!
