But that's not the end of their story. How could it be?
The boys find that life doesn't stop just because they got their happily ever after. There's still the custody battle for the Kid. The return of Otter's parents. A first trip to a gay bar. The Kid goes to therapy, and Mrs. Paquinn decides that Bigfoot is real. Anna and Creed do... well, whatever it is Anna and Creed do. There are newfound jealousies, the return of old enemies, bad poetry, and misanthropic seagulls. And through it all, Bear struggles to understand his mother's abandonment of him and his brother, only to delve deeper into their shared past. What he finds there will alter their lives forever and help him realize what it'll take to become who they're supposed to be.
Family is not always defined by blood. It's defined by those who make us whole - those who make us who we are.

One of my favourite series of all.....
What made the experience of listening to Who We Are the most enjoyable?
It's the story itself, the laughter, the tears, Bear's weird logic and the way he listens to the voice in his head...and then silence as everyone else around him waits for him to process (sometimes) what comes out of his mouth. Otter's steadfastness, Anna and Creed's friendship. Tyson and his tentative relationship with Dominic, starting off as friendship when neither of them have many friends. This story makes me really laugh out loud but I also carry a handkerchief, ready to catch the tears streaming down my face in the emotional parts...of which there are many.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Who We Are?
I'll just say one word...seagull. Anyone who's read the series will know what I'm talking about, and will probably crack up with laughter.
What about Charlie David’s performance did you like?
I normally love Charlie David narrating (Hot Head is a prime example, sooo sensual. He made Griff and Dante come alive) but I HATED the way he portrayed Mrs Paquin in this audio rendition...as a high pitched English voice. Just didn't connect with it I'm afraid.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Impossible to listen to it in one sitting. A) it's too long and B) too important, you must do it justice and listen to it closely HOWEVER long it takes.

A joy to listen to
Always a joy to listen to TJ Klune. He can make you cry tears of sadness followed quickly by tears of laughter and this book is no different. I recommend listening to Bear Otter and the Kid first to get the whole picture.
Charlie David does an exceptional job of bringing TJ's story to life.

If you loved the first, you will love the second
If you could sum up Who We Are in three words, what would they be?
Interesting, Funny, Heart-Warming
What did you like best about this story?
The main character's, Bear, witty insight and inner dialogue.
Any additional comments?
There are a lot of things that happened in this book and so I would insist that if you read, Bear Otter and the Kid, you definitely need to read this one.

Why oh WHY do they change narrators in a series?
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Yes, but really not a fan of the narrator. One of my favorite series. Love the balance between angst and humor. Especially the seagull chapter.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Otter. I love his protectiveness, his complete happiness with his relationship.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Made a 9 year old boy sound like a flaming queen. Just ick.
Was Who We Are worth the listening time?
Mostly. But I definitely going to reconsider buying a series where the narrators have changed.
