Premise:

One Last Stop follows August, who’s moving to New York City for a new start. And then, she meets Jane. Jane is a mystery. Quite literally. Displaced in time, Jane is stuck on the subway with no way off, and August has to help her find a way back to the 1970’s. But, the more time they spend together, the closer they become, and August’s small subway crush grows even deeper.

Writing

If you’ve read Red, White and Royal Blue, then you have a good idea of what to expect with the writing of One Last Stop. If you haven’t- then what are you doing here, go read it! Or maybe read One Last Stop first.

This book is funny and heartwarming, the writing adding humor and relatability to each moment. Like Casey McQuiston’s first book, there’s plenty of quotable moments, and I feel that their writing has definitely developed even more since Red, White and Royal Blue.

Plot

This book will have you hooked. It did take me around 50-80 pages to get fully invested, but once I was in, I couldn’t put it down. From the mystery to the romance, One Last Stop is absolutely addictive.

Characters

August is an incredible protagonist with a great journey, and Jane is the perfect love interest for her. Together, their chemistry is amazing and they bring out the best qualities in each other. Both of them are realistically flawed, but often in painfully relatable ways. And their relationship? Adorable.

But they aren’t the only two characters in this book, and I have to say: I would read a book about every single side-character in One Last Stop. They were all so well-developed, complex, and unique. And there is so much diversity in the main friend group, it made me so happy!

Pros- addictive, adorable, just absolutely amazing
Cons- Not a con but I need to say it: don’t go into this book expecting Red, White and Royal Blue 2.0. These two books are very different, but both are truly incredible.
Overall- 5/5 stars.
One Last Stop kept me up until 2am laughing and crying over these characters. You do not want to miss out on this beautiful story.
