Book: One Last Stop
Author: Casey McQuiston.
August moves to New York for college, with the expectation and hope that she can blend easily into the background.
She soon realises that what with her handful of quirky new roommates and the presence of a mysterious girl, Jane, who is always on her train, the prospect of being noticed is the smallest of her worries.
Jane is dynamic, dazzling and always dressed in a dashing leather jacket straight from the 70s.
When it turns out it’s not just her jacket, but Jane herself who’s from another decade, August is caught up in the mystery how she got trapped in time, and how she could possibly help her.
Casey McQuiston, New York Times bestselling author of Red, White & Royal Blue follows up that debut with a moving contemporary romance that captures the experiences of your early 20s and meeting people in new cities, while keeping the reader engaged by playing with the supernatural.
It is touching and funny, even if a little cliché, and full of authentically human moments. Despite the pacing sometimes being a little slow, it is a light-hearted novel that is easy to read.
As this book does contain some mature themes, I would recommend it to readers over the age of 15 who enjoy a lazy afternoon with an easy-going book in their lap.
