Publisher's Summary

From the critically acclaimed author of The List comes a stunning new novel about a girl who must say good-bye to everything she knows after a storm wreaks havoc on her hometown.

What if your town was sliding underwater, and everyone was ordered to pack up and leave? How would you and your friends spend your last days together?

While the adults plan for the future, box up their possessions, and find new places to live, Keeley Hewitt and her friends decide to go out with a bang. There are parties in abandoned houses. Canoe races down Main Street. The goal is to make the most of every minute they still have together. And for Keeley that means taking one last shot at the boy she's loved forever.

There's a weird sort of bravery that comes from knowing there's nothing left to lose. You might do things you normally wouldn't. Or say things you shouldn't. The reward almost always outweighs the risk.

Almost. It's the end of Aberdeen but the beginning of Keeley's first love story. It just might not turn out the way she thought. Because it's not always clear what's worth fighting for and what you should let become a memory.

Narrator ruin this book for me

I couldn’t get past the voice of the narrator. She sounded like she had a stuffed up nose. I’ll head over to my local library & just read this book the old fashioned way

Emotional Rollercoaster

I agree with the other reviews that the narrator sounds like she had a cold. It was difficult to listen to the beginning, but I found the story captivating enough to keep me listening and then it didn't bother me as much.

As for the story, I wanted a happier story, but it was quite stressful to listen to the main character continue to make mistakes. Otherwise, it was a good story that kept me engaged and the pain and confusion of the situation was portrayed well. I just felt like I wanted more from the ending to make up for the stress.

The nasal voice is not good!

This was a good book. But the narrator badly needed a tissue the entire time which was really distracting. I think she has potential because she has a pleasant tone but the nasal voice has got to go!

I felt so much for these kids

I haven't genuinely felt so much for fictional teenagers since I was one. I loved this book so much. I love that it made me want to smile, and cry, and hug someone.

Skip this but read the review first

First of all I am going to say that the narrator of the book sounds like she has a stuffed up nose for the first half of the book. The book also gave me anxiety almost the whole time because of all the dumb decisions that Keely made. I also don’t like that the book all came together at the end all at once instead of slowly. I hated the end. If you are insanely bored and want a book to listen to read this but if you have other options then go with those. Thank you for reading the review and have a great day. :)

3/5 stars

This book was decent. The first dozen or so chapters were hard to listen to, and the main character was not like-able. The whole time, I felt that the main character was quite annoying, but there was enough going on in the plot to make me finish listening to the book.

Not a good story

I wouldn’t recommend it. It reminded me the whole time of that part in Ricky and Morty when that old guy from Purge planet writes a book, “three weeks earlier,” we should start the story where it begins not where it gets “interesting”.

You know the town isn’t going to make it. You know Levi is going to be the love interest and you
Know that her friends are going to ditch her. There is no surprises. It’s just a bad story. The lady that read the story did great tho.

its ok

At first the narrator sounded like she had a cold, but if you continue to listen it's not that bad and you will get used to it. I don't like how the book ended though, I was very disappointed with it. I wish it would have ended at little happer. So if you are thinking of reading this book, just know the ending is kind of sad and a let down.

Unexpectedly addictive

I wanted to leave a review because there was only one. I loved this story although I need to clarify that Aberdeen as outlined in the blurb is not the city in Scotland. It is set in America. After days of torrential rain, the town of Aber-deen (as it was pronounced) becomes flooded, while the adults decide whether to stay or go, 16 year old Keeley and her friends are making the most of their time together with house parties, kayaks and slip.n slides. Initially Keely is made out to be the awkward friend that guys only put up with to be with their more attractive friends but when her childhood crush starts to pay her attention she comes into her own. They are the class clowns, always up for fun, laughs and not taking life too seriously despite the town being in turmoil as the government takes advantage of the flood to squeeze its residents out to make space for a new damn. And Keely rather embarrassingly is daughter of the town of the local verbal conspiracy theorist.

I initially thought I would give up.on this title as nothing had really happened two hours in but soon I was stealing away every moment to finish it and giving myself migraines just to get to find out what happebs the end. It was an interesting backdrop for a first love story but didn't follow the usual conventions of girl falls for guy she initially doesn't get on with which is what I was expecting. It took a long time for Keeleys character to develop, she seemed to be rude and insensitive to what people were going through and even in the last hour I was lifting my hands shaking my head and asking WTF are you doing??!! But you understand why this is towards the end. The characters, emotions and situations are realistic and convey the harsh reality of growing up.

I did find the narators s voice slightly annoying, it sounded like she had a head-cold but if you put that aside and concentrate on.the story it begins to face out. I was gripped right to the very end and that life doesn't always end up tied in a neat little bow. It's complicated and messy. One thing which did annoy me was that there was more character investment in some more than others but this may have been done on purpose. As another reviewer has said the ending was beautiful and I could not agree more. Well worth a read.
