Publisher's Summary

From the award-winning and New York Times best-selling author of The Rest of the Story comes a powerful novel about loss, love, and moving on.

Nothing is going as planned for Macy this summer. 

Not the job at Wish Catering, and definitely not Wes.

But Macy soon discovers that the things you expect least are sometimes the things you need most.

"Dessen gracefully balances comedy with tragedy and introduces a complex heroine worth getting to know." (Publishers Weekly)

Great book, bad performer

This book was one of my favorites as a teenager and I was so excited to find it on here, but this narrator was so so difficult to listen to. I found the tone and inflections of her voice very irritating and her vocal choices made Macy into WAY more of a brat than I had ever read her as. This is an unfortunate example of a narrator detracting from an otherwise wonderful story.

This was my favorite Sarah Dessen book when I was in middle school. It’s still as great as I remember.

The story kept me going.

I had a little trouble with the reader at first but, as usual, Ms Dessen drew me in immediately so I soldiered on listening. Very quickly afterward, I fell into things & found I was quite mistaken about Ms Soler. She was excellent!! I find that each time I read/listen to a Dessen work, I find it gets better & better. I pick up on more nuance & realize the fabric of the Dessen universe is more intricate than I originally thought. I enjoy the cross overs from the various books (but would LOVE to learn what caused Jason to go from the self involved asshole he is here to the insightful, empathic dropout be becomes in "What Happened...."). Well worth a peek!

My favorite

I love Sarah Dessen and was so happy to find this new recording of my favorite book of hers. I love the characters, the story, and the themes. Rebecca Soler was fabulous and was able to portray Macy as I always saw her when I was younger. Absolutely fantastic. Will recommend whole-heartedly.
