Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She’s ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications and to maybe let her childhood best friend Sebastian know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be epic—one of opportunities and chances.
Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything.
Now Lena isn’t looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian might never forgive her for what happened.
For what she let happen.
With the guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when her and her friends’ entire existences have been redefined? How can she move on when tomorrow isn’t even guaranteed?

Hot damn. JLA never fails to impress me.
Seriously this book was AMAZING! As with all JLA books, I couldn’t put it down and I ended up finishing it in one day.
This book was so beautiful and heartbreaking. It shows that every action has a reaction and everything can change in an instant. One day you’re thinking about the future and the next moment, everything seems so trivial.
The main character, Lena Wise was one of the most realistic and relatable characters I’ve ever read about. She was kind, caring..and most of all she was only human. She had flaws, and she showed that everyone makes mistakes and it’s up to you to accept them, learn from them and move on. She also loves books, (it even mentions the ACOTAR series and The Paper Princess series!) so that was a huge plus!
Now onto the love interest, Sebastian. *sighs* be still my beating heart. He was perfect. We are first introduced to him as he goes up to Lena’s balcony to see her (they live next door to each other) and i just absolutely adored the friendship and love they had for each other. He was such a sweet, down-to-earth guy who cared so much about Lena. Serious book boyfriend material!
I went into this book pretty much blind and I think that’s the best way. It’s definitely a slow-paced story but I loved how the reader went on this journey of acceptance and moving on with Lena. It just made this book all the more emotional and powerful.
All in all, if you are already a fan of JLA books then of course I would recommend this one! If you’re new to JLA’s books and are looking for a beautiful, emotional contemporary romance then I’d definitely put this on your tbr list. Until next time…
