Description: Meet Tanya, Claire, Emma, Mia, and Gwen, five girls from the same hometown but varied backgrounds whose lives intersect as they struggle to overcome both where they are from and what they have experienced. Tanya grows up with an abusive brother and a prostitute's daughter for a best friend. Gwen dreams of becoming a supermodel, but like Tanya she too must cope with male violence as she gets older. Mia loses her father to suicide and her best friend, Emma to murder. And, finally, Claire a bartender and aspiring writer escapes their town by fleeing to Boston where she relies on Mia, but finds she can't escape her past.

Through these remarkable characters, Fitzpatrick captures not only the difficulties of being young and female, but the desire to persevere, to become what no one else expects: a survivor. In this dark, breath-taking work, her haunting prose elevates the typical woman's experience into a powerful, raw read. Where We Lived is both a stunning fiction and the debut of a major new talent.
