For cynical twenty-three-year-old August, moving to New York City is supposed to prove her right: that things like magic and cinematic love stories don’t exist, and the only smart way to go through life is alone. She can’t imagine how waiting tables at a 24-hour pancake diner and moving in with too many weird roommates could possibly change that. And there’s certainly no chance of her subway commute being anything more than a daily trudge through boredom and electrical failures.
But then, there’s this gorgeous girl on the train.
Jane. Dazzling, charming, mysterious, impossible Jane. Jane with her rough edges and swoopy hair and soft smile, showing up in a leather jacket to save August’s day when she needed it most. August’s subway crush becomes the best part of her day, but pretty soon, she discovers there’s one big problem: Jane doesn’t just look like an old school punk rocker. She’s literally displaced in time from the 1970s, and August is going to have to use everything she tried to leave in her own past to help her. Maybe it’s time to start believing in some things, after all.
Casey McQuiston’s One Last Stop is a magical, sexy, big-hearted romance where the impossible becomes possible as August does everything in her power to save the girl lost in time.
August lost everything during the flood and then never held onto to things after so she wouldn’t ever have anything to lose, so she wouldn’t feel that way again.
How her roommates come up with why’s Jane couldn’t go out with August when she asked.\
A group of misfit friends/roommates that turn into their own little family. One Last Stop takes you on an unexpected adventure. It dragged at some places for me, other times it moved right along. Full of interesting and quirky characters. The unravelling of the mystery surrounding Jane is interwoven with the development of their relationship and growth of all the characters. What I loved the most about the book is how New York was portrayed – it’s a character in itself. Not my favorite read but not a bad book overall. The writing is good, characters quirky and fun.
