Headline, 2015. ISBN: 9781472221032
(Age: 15+) Recommended. 'One last night together. One life-changing decision. One last list'.
Clare made a list as she always does, but this one is different. This one is for Clare and Aidan's last night together and this list is going to help them decide their future, together or apart. This list is going to take them to the places of all their important moments, their first hello is science class to the first conversation at a pizza joint, their first kiss at the beach to their first dance in a darkened gymnasium, everything up to their last night together. It will be a night of laughs, new hurts and last-minute kisses. But ends in an inevitable goodbye. But what will it be? Goodbye for now, or goodbye forever?
This novel is definitely a rollercoaster for the emotions. Seriously, I couldn't put it down. It was such a sweet read and relatable to couples finishing school or even to the closest of friends. You just can't help falling in love with Clare and Aidan and wanting a happy ending for the two of them. It is a great read for those that want a quick, fun read to change things up a bit between reads. If you are after a fun, cute and light read this is the one you will want to pick up.
