What a delightful summer treat this book turned out to be. While there’s not a lot of surprises per se, the story of Holland and Milo finding each other is sweet and full of young hopefulness.
Holland’s character is a pretty typical popular kid in high school. She fits in with most social groups and enjoys being friends with lots of people. Milo is a quieter sarcastic character who keeps to himself. Despite having classes together Holland still feels that Milo has a sense of mystery about him. He never really opens up to her the way most people do, so of course that drives her crazy.
Cue graduation, parties, and then working together. Milo and Holland get to know each other and decide to date knowing that summer would mean the end of things, enter the bucket list idea. Super fun ideas peppered through this coming of age story.
I recommend this book if you’re in the mood for a fun, sweet, young adult romance. Summer romances are built up so much in high school, it’s rare to find one that will last after.
