Available to order from Amazon. 

What We Don't Know About Our Friends by L. Christie consists of three different stories, with each of the main characters having lost someone close to them. In ‘Meet Me @’, Kieron receives a mysterious phone call on the 2nd anniversary of his best friend’s death. ‘The Dialog Tree’ sees Milton use AI to try to digitally recreate his dead wife. Set in 1847 Zürich ‘Tia’s Inheritance’ follows Tia as she navigates a surprise and unwanted marriage proposal with the mystical help of her lost mother. 

Each story is quite different but all have very similar themes so they sit together in this collection really well. They are all character focused and the author does really well to get you established in the new story in a small number of words. There is a sense of magical realism in all three narratives, allowing each of the main characters to find closure or hope for the future. I think ‘Meet Me @’ was the most powerful story for me, I think including the moment of the accident had a real emotional impact, and seeing how close Kieron was to Sarah made me root for him on his journey all the more. 

There’s a powerful sense of hope and positivity for the future in each of these stories and I think they would appeal to fans of contemporary fiction.
