3 nights, 2 days, and 1 massive music fest . . .
I’ve been content sweating under the covers, hiding from life all summer. That’s what happens when you suffer from a broken heart.
After being away most of the break, my best friend returns and tries to draw me out of my funk. She can try all she wants, but I’m not leaving my bed until school starts.
But then she dangles tickets to The Last Hurrah. Broken heart or not, this weekend-long music festival is not to be missed.
I expect the music and ambience to be awesome. What I don’t expect is for my heart to forget it’s been crushed when I meet the cute and quirky Link. We team up on a scavenger hunt for tickets to a super-secret show from our mutually favorite band: Black Moon.
Suddenly, the dark clouds resembling a shattered heart are breaking up.
Until we cross paths with my crowd-hating ex during the middle of our quest. I’m abruptly torn between my feelings of the past and my new attraction for Link.
Will I lose focus on the finish line of the scavenger hunt by folding into the reason I hid all summer long?
The Last Hurrah could turn out to be more than just a music festival. It could be the biggest turning point of my life.
This was exciting the whole way through. I whipped through it. Despite being short, it possessed all the qualities of a well-written full length novel. Basically you get all the feels in a nicely timed bursts. Highly recommend this.
There were so many swoon moments, sad moments, and outrage moments. Exactly what I want from a book. And I’ve gotta say, Link may be my favorite guy from the My Life series. Sorry, Noah.
I also like that Everly was flawed. She definitely made some mistakes in this one, but she grows by the end.
Ugh, this was just so good. Oh, and though it’s not on the cover, Link wears black rimmed glasses. Sexy.
