I would give this book 4.5 for a review.
Acclaimed author Emery Lord crafts a gorgeous story of friendship and identity, daring to ask: What happens after happily ever after?
It’s senior year, and Paige Hancock is finally living her best life. She has a fun summer job, great friends, and a super charming boyfriend who totally gets her. But senior year also means big decisions. Weighing “the rest of her life,” Paige feels her anxiety begin to pervade every decision she makes. Everything is exactly how she always wanted it to be–how can she leave it all behind next year? In her head, she knows there is so much more to experience after high school. But in her heart, is it so terrible to want everything to stay the same forever?
Emery Lord’s award-winning storytelling shines with lovable characters and heartfelt exploration of life’s most important questions.
I thought this was such a solid standalone novel to the first book in this series the start of me and you. I loved how this book was again set along almost a whole year of their life and took place directly after book 1. I hoped this book would have took us to the the end of summer but it only went to spring break. I am secretly hoping we get a third book to complete this series. I really loved the main characters in this book and the topics that were discussed. I loved the pace of this novel and really flew through it. I did not love the opening ending, but I am hoping we get a concluding novel. I really did loved the dynamics of this characters in this novel and how they changed from the start of this series. It was a great read!
