One Last Stop is a story of love. Not only an extraordinary romantic love, but also love for a city and queer community. While the main focus is on August and Jane’s romance, it ties into a larger story of finding yourself, finding a home, finding community, and protecting those once you’ve found them.
There were moments when the supernatural element made me pause, but it was easy to suspend belief and fully be drawn into the story. I read this book in two sittings and days after finishing it I still keep thinking back to moments in the novel. It was refreshing to read a queer story that not only included a beautiful romance, but also queer community. I have already recommended this book to my friends and will continue recommending it as the release day approaches.
