GoodReads Summary:

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.

My Thoughts:

Do you believe in soul mates and love at first sight? Skye and Seth meet the last night of summer vacation and fell instantly in love with each other. This would be really short story if that is all there was too it but of course, it’s not. They end up not exchanging contact information, confident they will see each other the following day.

Fast forward to the following summer, Skye and Seth once again meet and know that they cannot be without each other. Seth is away at college while Skye is finishing up high school. What they learn is to be together is not as simple as falling in love. They have so much to learn about each other and to growing up to do before they can be fully committed together.

I will openly admit this is my first Colastini book but it will not be my last! What I loved about this book is the characters. Told through alternating viewpoints of Skye and Seth, as readers we are able to see how both characters are feeling, approach their lives, how they feel within their relationship and experience their insecurities. Just in time for summer, this book will have you celebrating first love, friendship and figuring out the next step in life.
