The book primarily occurs during the class trips, but also includes flashbacks from the prior year. There are elements of enemies-to-dating and second chance romance that really make this a book that tugs at all the heartstrings. As the book covers so much time, I felt like we really delve into their relationship and the way that it evolves. I also loved seeing how they both followed their passions and ultimately supported each other.
This book gave me a lot of feels. It was so easy to empathize with Lulu and her emotions and thoughts become so real throughout the book. The characters are so three-dimensional, and I loved seeing them grow. I would recommend this to older YA readers with a note of some consensual sexual content and swearing.
This is such a compelling and engrossing YA contemporary romance. It is impossible to put down, so definitely save a whole afternoon to devour this fantastic read.
