Omg, now I don't know wich book of the trilogy is my favourite. 

I'll be more eloquent on my opinion later on.

I was 99% sure I’d love this book, and I was right. I knew I loved it as soon as I started reading. From cover to cover, it was fun, super cute, and highly amusing. Both of the previous books in the series had me laughing and swooning, and this one was no exception. I love Chloe, Dani, Eve, Red, Zaf, and Jacob with my whole heart. I love Gigi too, and honestly would love a grandma as eccentric and fun as her.

The only thing I didn’t love was how little of the other two Brown sisters and their boyfriends we got to see. I understand that this is Eve and Jacob’s book, and they spend most of it in a small town a couple of hours away from where the previous protagonists live. The one scene where they were almost all together was brief and didn’t include Jacob. Don’t get me wrong, I still absolutely loved the book. I just would’ve really liked to see the six of them hanging out and goofing around.

I can easily say that this book—honestly, this whole trilogy—is at the very top of my favorites list. In my list of top five contemporary books, three spots would be given to these books. I’ll definitely be rereading them, either because they’re great pick-me-ups or I just miss the characters. :)

trigger warnings: autism related microgressions and ableism, emotionally manipulative and exploitative friends, sexual content, meltdown and anxiety/panic attack, abusive and negligent parents, bullying mention, alcohol mention

Eve's book is the best of the three which is a monumental statement considering the entire series is mind-blowing. I love soft dorks and Eve and Jacob are soft dorks. The embody the smol sunshine and tol angery trope SO WELL. IRFSELRJESLRG TALIA GIVE US MORE WE BEG
