In We Are All Together by Richard Fulco, Stephen Cane moves to New York to reconnect with a former bandmate, Dylan John, and gets the chance to replace him when Dylan becomes a civil rights activist. Thrilled by the opportunity to prove himself creatively, he dives into the music world, only to be consumed by heroin. After he witnesses a tragic event, Stephen’s focus changes, and his life takes a new turn.
We Are All Together is a great book for young adults and older readers, and it carries heavy themes of forgiveness and self-discovery. Mature topics, like sex, drugs, racism, and politics are laced into the plot, but the book is a collective expression of a time period that has been immortalized in songs. The author referenced singers and songs with which many people would be familiar even if they didn’t live during that era. The reader can envision the scenes unfolding as Fulco brings his characters and their situations to life.
Although it wasn’t strictly dated, the story was written a lot like a memoir, and Richard Fulco’s tone was easy to digest. The exchanges between the characters were dynamic, and they reflected exactly what readers would expect from a book written about the sixties. We Are All Together would be a great read for someone who loves the music and lifestyle of the 1960s. Additionally, readers who enjoy works set in a similar era would enjoy the dialog and nostalgia represented on almost every page.
