by Kellie Sheridan
Genre: ContemporaryBo
Age category: Young Adult
Release Date: January 4, 2017

Blurb:
The odds of giving birth to identical quadruplets: 1 in 13 million.

The population of Fairview, a town where all anyone talks about is the Fairview Four’s return after fourteen years: 47,327.

The chance of Reagan meeting a guy who sees her as one of a kind: better than she thinks.

Following in her sisters’ footsteps—and, all too often, their shadows—is nothing new to Reagan. But a disastrous first day at Fairview High forces her down a new path, one that could lead to seeing herself as more than just someone else’s sister. Things aren’t going as smoothly for Reilly, Reece, and Rhiannon though. How can Reagan let herself be happy—or dare to fall in love—when she may be the only one who can bring her family back together?

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants meets Gilmore Girls in the first novel of a heartwarming new series about first loves, family, and finding your way.

About Where we Were:

Our entire lives have been shaped around our identity as identical quadruplets. Four sisters, all with the same face, but totally different personalities. We are four of a kind, and there has never been a time when we didn’t have each other to lean on. But, when our parents announce that we’ll been moving away from the city and back to the town where we were born, we can no longer be certain of anything but change.

This is where we were.

Excerpt 1

“We’re looking for number one-fifty-one,” Mom says as though we haven’t all spent the last month staring at this house from Google Maps.

The street, ridiculously long due to the size of the houses, winds and bends. We’re going to be living right at the end of the cul-de-sac, before the park.

But as soon as the grey house we’re about to live in comes into view, so does a boxy, white news van. We’re still a dozen houses away, but it’s impossible to miss—and something I definitely didn’t expect. All at once, I’m not that excited.

I wasn’t supposed to talk to actual people today, let alone put on my publicity face. My heart races as a million possible scenarios spin through my head—anything they might ask me, anything I might do to make myself seem like an idiot.

“Looks like we’ve got company,” Mom says, slowing down the car.

My body slumps down in the passenger’s seat. I’m trying to hide even though we haven’t been spotted yet.

“Seriously?” Reece snaps from the back. She only got about two hours of sleep the night before, and I don’t imagine she’s in the mood for surprises, even if there is a photographer involved.

“Mom,” Reilly adds, the twinge of a whine in her voice. “What are they doing here?”

“I’m sorry.” Mom’s eyes dart around nervously, looking for a way out. “I had no idea they’d be here. I don’t even know how they knew we’d be here.” She pulls the car over to the side of the road, hiding us behind a minivan.

I inhale slowly, willing myself to stay calm. It’s not like we haven’t dealt with the media before, but it’s been years since anyone has really cared about the ‘Fairview Four.’ When we were little, there were a couple of news features about us and a half-hour documentary for some silly reality TV channel. Most people didn’t care at all, but some people cared way too much. By the time we were old enough to search for ourselves online, there was almost no one left who cared about who we were or the anomaly of our birth.

Groaning, I bang my head back against the headrest. I want to be in my new room, in my new bed, organizing my bookshelves. Really, I want to be anywhere but here, about to have to answer pointless questions about myself and how it feels to be back after all these years.

Excerpt 2

One, two, three. Not the four she was hoping for. I’d like to point out that we’re actually two short, since my dad isn’t here either, but like always, I keep my mouth shut.

“Rhiannon made the drive up in our moving truck with the girls’ father,” Mom says like she’s apologizing. She has nothing to apologize for, especially not to this woman who gave us no warning she’d be here. “We didn’t quite expect this today.”

“Of course, of course! No trouble at all, Elaine.” Mindy smiles, showing off a row of perfectly white teeth. “Will they be arriving soon?”

“Unfortunately, no. They’re at least two hours behind us. We’d be happy to sit down with you tomorrow though, once the girls have had a little time to settle in.”

I almost laugh at the comment. We moved out of the city, to an entirely new state, and it’s only going to take us one afternoon to get settled in? Yeah, okay.

“I guess that will be fine,” Mindy says. “If there’s really no way to get Rhiannon here. Everyone is so looking forward to seeing the girls together in Fairview again. And we did want to do this before the new school year starts.”

“When’s that?” Reece asks.

“September second.” Less than two weeks. “I assume the girls will be going to Fairview High?” She can’t be bothered to speak to us directly. Apparently we’re just supposed to stand here and smile for the cameras. Which isn’t so bad, now that I think about it.

“Yes, just like I did. They’ll be sophomores this year.”

“My son Kent is starting his sophomore year, too.” Mindy claps her hands together. “He keeps a busy schedule, but I’m sure he’d be happy to show you around!” She beams at the three of us like we should be weeping with gratitude that her darling boy is willing to play tour guide.

It’s tempting to roll my eyes—until someone shoulders his way past Mindy and sticks his hand out in front of me. It’s him. The guy with the green hair. This is Kent?

I blink slowly, looking back at him. From the front, he’s even better than I imagined. His eyes are the same warm brown as his skin, and they crinkle up a little as he smiles at me.

“Hi,” he says, looking down at his hand expectantly. I’m still fixated on the near golden brown of his eyes, and the way they stand out, unnaturally bright against the even tan of his skin. “I’m Kent. Welcome to Fairview.”

Right! Hand-shaking. Frantically, I grab on to his hand and bounce it up and down a few times before he moves to Reece and then Reilly.

“Nice to meet you,” I mumble.

I don’t think he hears me, but a second later his eyes lock on mine. For an instant, he just looks at me and I will myself to do something, anything. His eyes almost seem to be teasing me. I can’t help it. I smile before we both glance away. “Welcome to Fairview,” I hear him mumble. He’s already shaking Reece’s hand, but something about the way his head still tilts in this direction suggests that maybe she doesn’t have his full attention.

After he introduces himself to Reilly, the four of us all hang back as Mindy and my mom keep chatting about everything from the drive to the move to the weather. No matter how short Mom’s answers are, the questions seem to keep coming like Mindy is hoping that if she holds us here long enough she’ll be able to wait out Rhiannon.

The boy—Kent, I remind myself—smiles back at me before getting dragged back in to a conversation with his mother. But I’m not listening anymore. All I can think about are brown eyes, and just how much I’m going to like living here.
