Book Review - One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston

One Last Stop

One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

 Synopsis: 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.

 My Thoughts: I loved Jane and August's budding romance. It was very much an enjoyable and weird read at the same time because of Jane's situation bless her big heart. This book gave me all the "feels"! I laughed, I got angry, I cried, and so much more all while cheering these two on and hoping upon hope they'd find a way to make things work out.
