This book originally published on The Children's Book and Media Review

It is their last night before leaving for college, and Clare and Aidan have to figure out if they are going to have a long distance relationship or break up. Clare makes a list of the things and places that have been the most important in their two years of being together. Together they go from place to place, reliving the moments that brought them together. Along the way, they discuss the possibility of staying together and the fear of being apart. They get upset with each other and some of their friends as everyone they know struggles to deal with moving on to a new stage of life that no one is feeling comfortable with. Through the course of one night, Clare and Aidan decide to move on to have the college experience, but leave room for possible hellos in the future after a long night of goodbyes.

The book seems like it would be a cute, fluffy book, but the characters and situation make it unsuccessful. It seems strange that Clare and Aidan were able to date for two years with their polar opposite personalities. Clare is indecisive, far too logical that seems reasonable in the situation, and selfish towards her friends without realizing it for a long time and then is unwilling to apologize for it. When she finally gets what she’s been arguing for, she gets upset by it. Aidan, however, is a lot more likable, but seems like a “wish fulfilment” character for the reader. Aidan puts more into the relationship that Clare seems to, making it feel very one sided. People leaving for college soon might find the book highly relatable in spite of the characters’ weaknesses.

actually a really good story and probably one of my favorite jennifer e. smith books.

one thing that never lets me down are the plots of her story and how they are told. She shows how real life really is and how it isn't always what it shows in movies. Although, I hoped that she could have shown more in their path BACK to one another...but then again, this is my opinion :)) ( )

Clare and Aidan only have a day left before they decide whether or not they should break up and go their separate ways in college, and they decide on their decision by revisiting places with fond memories.

The depth and meaningfulness of this book didn't really hit me. I dated a guy my Senior year of high school. It didn't work out. We're still friends. Even the fine details weren't as dramatic as this book. The entire town knows about Clare and Aidan? This must be a small town.

Everything was so unnecessarily dramatic. Getting into a fist fight with your best friend the day before you have to leave for college? Said best friend ending up in jail? Note, the whole where you're going to college and what you're doing to do in college and whether or not your parents control your life is pretty accurate, on the other hand. Although, why is everyone going to an Ivy League?

Although, there were a ton of high school stereotypes. HS jock dates normal/smart girl. Smart girl's future roommate from NYC is apparently really snobbish and has St. in her name. (Why is it that New Yorkers always get this stereotype)? Goth girl, funny guy. The usual.

This book wasn't as touching as I thought it would be, because of all the drama and not as much of the actual relationship, but I'm glad the ending played out as it did. ( )

Clare and Aidan are on the eve of the day they leave for their separate colleges across the country from each other. After going back and forth with options for months, it is finally time to decide if they are going to stay together or break up. Unfortunately, that is not as easy as they seem to think. Clare makes a list of all the important places in their life and plans for a full night of going down memory lane so that they can come to a reasonable decision together. Things do not go as planned and they are thrown off course and forced to face a lot more hard decisions than they originally thought. Now it is time to say goodbye to their friends, their parents, Clare’s dog, and finally each other… Will they stay together or break up?

Both of the main characters are pretty likable. I didn’t really feel Clare for a good part of the book because I thought she was being very selfish and making everyone’s life harder than it needed to be, but as I got to know her I was able to understand her more. Clare is practical to a fault and she has this fantastical idea about going away to college and starting the rest of her life. It is hard for her to look at Aidan in California while she is in New Hampshire and imagine their life together. Aidan, on the other hand, is the complete opposite. He sees his life and sees how big of part of it that Clare is and can’t image her in it. While Clare is practical and logical, Aidan is whimsical and spontaneous. He doesn’t want to plan out all the details of his life, but instead just see where the chips fall. I loved Aidan and thought he sounded so sweet. My heart hurt for him, as he had to begin to see that staying with Clare isn’t the only option. The supporting characters were great too. I loved Stella and her sass. I love that she puts Clare in her place and makes her realize that her problems aren’t the only problems. Scotty is like a lovable puppy. He makes poor choices but you know he is the type of friend that will always be there for you. I think their story would make for a great spin off story.

The book is very nostalgic in that I think we all have someone at some point in our lives that we have had to decide whether to stay or go (figuratively or literally). Because of that I was able to relate to both characters because I have been in both of their shoes at some point in my life. I think everyone will be able to relate to one of the characters in the book at least a little bit. Everyone has had to make hard choices and sometimes have made the wrong choice and had to live with it. This book is all about weighing the risk and the outcomes and trying to decide what is easier to live with.




Here is the thing with this book, you know it is going to end one of two ways: they break up or they stay together. That’s what it all ultimately boils down to. It ended how I thought, but the second prologue (once you read the book, you will understand) surprised me a little. Usually with these kinds of books, it ends and that’s it. We don’t get a peek into the future because that’s not what the story is about. I liked that we got a little glimpse of how the two fair a few months later. Though it is predictable, it is nothing if not sweet. I experienced lots of warm and fuzzies and closed the book with a smile on my face.

If you are looking for a quick, easy read then I encourage you to pick this one up. I read it all in about two hours and probably could have finished faster than that if I didn’t have to start and stop. Jennifer E. Smith’s books all have the same type of formula for the story, so if you like one of her books then this won’t be any exception. ( )
