The last night of summer is only the beginning.
Skye wants to meet the boy who will change her life forever. Seth feels their instant connection the second he sees her. When Seth starts talking to Skye at the last beach party of the summer, it’s obvious to both of them that this is something real. But when Seth leaves for college before they exchange contact info, Skye wonders if he felt the same way she did—and if she will ever see him again. Even if they find their way back to each other, can they make a long-distance relationship work despite trust issues, ex drama, and some serious background differences?
Teen favorite Susane Colasanti returns to the alternating-voice style of her beloved debut When It Happens in this Serendipity-inspired story about summer, soul mates, and the moments that change our lives forever.
This book was so sweet. It really makes you believe in love and happily ever after. Relationships aren't always easy in this book, but the characters work at it because they really want to be together. Happily ever after has obstacles and isn't like fairy tales, but it's worth it. Friendships in this book are the same way. They don't always get along, but they talk their problems through.
This was a good summer read. Romantic, fluffy, and real. Loved it. The best part is watching the characters support one another. It's one of my favorites by her.
