I would give this book 4 for a review.


Sloane isn’t expecting to fall in with a group of friends when she moves from New York to Florida—especially not a group of friends so intense, so in love, so all-consuming. Yet that’s exactly what happens.

Sloane becomes closest to Vera, a social-media star who lights up any room, and Gabe, Vera’s twin brother and the most serious person Sloane’s ever met. When a beloved painting by the twins’ late mother goes missing, Sloane takes on the responsibility of tracking it down, a journey that takes her across state lines—and ever deeper into the twins’ lives.

Filled with intense and important friendships, a wonderful warts-and-all family, shiveringly good romantic developments, and sharp, witty dialogue, this story is about finding the people you never knew you needed.

My  Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book a lot. It focuses so much on friendship as most of Emma books does. I also enjoyed Solane character. She is very much a outsider trying to find her place in a new group of friends. I also like the arts connection that was threaded throughout this novel and also how the fandom elements were used in this novel. I also just loved the group of friends sloane fell into. It was a prefect summer read even thought it is technically set in the winter. I also loved the light mystery that was threaded in this novel. I found this to be a fast pace read as well!
