The night will lead them to friends and family, familiar landmarks and unexpected places, hard truths and surprising revelations. But as the clock winds down and morning approaches, so does their inevitable goodbye. The question is, will it be goodbye for now or goodbye forever?
This book This book was so romantic, flirty and totally cute.
Jennifer has been one of my favorite contemporary writers ever, I love every single one of her books and this book wasn’t the exception; I have never read a book in which the main characters were already in a relationship, but I really enjoyed it, and I think it’s nice that she did this change because it’s different from her other books.
First of all, the title of the book, I think we can all have kind of an idea of what the end could be, but trust me, you will totally love it, even if you guess it, you will find a perfectly perfect end.
The cover, THE COVER!!! I totally love it, it’s simple, original, romantic and totally beautiful.
The story is about how Clare and Aidan have only twelve hours to decide what to do with their relationship before they both go to college and Clare decided to make a list with all the special places in which they met and used to hang out to relieve all those moments with hopes of knowing what to do, kind of like a scavenger hunt, because they took things from all the places they visited, but there were times in which it was difficult for them to stick with the list due to things like Aidan’s sister and their crazy, funny and amazing best friends.
I didn’t like Clare’s attitude at the beginning because I felt like she put so many excuses for why they shouldn’t be together, but as the story went on I realized how so much effort she was putting to try to not get hurt but at the same time, do what was the correct thing for both of them too.
Aidan ‘s attitude was so carefree and amazing, he didn’t want to break up with Clare and so we can see his efforts in trying to convince her, he was my favorite character of the story, his relationship with his father was a little bit hard in my opinion but I was satisfied with how they ended up.
Jennifer represented very well the feeling of starting a new college life, the struggle of trying to make someone happy, but at the same time choosing something that makes YOU happy and also, saying goodbye to the people that means a lot to us, the whole book was perfect, I loved every single one of the characters and the story itself.
