Isla and the happily ever After
May 13th 2014
From the glittering streets of Manhattan to the moonlit rooftops of Paris, falling in love is easy for hopeless dreamer Isla and introspective artist Josh. But as they begin their senior year in France, Isla and Josh are quickly forced to confront the heartbreaking reality that happily-ever-afters aren’t always forever.
Their romantic journey is skillfully intertwined with those of beloved couples Anna and Étienne and Lola and Cricket, whose paths are destined to collide in a sweeping finale certain to please fans old and new.
I'm super excited for this one (aren't we all?). Anna and the French Kiss is one of my all time favourite contemporary books and Lola was a great sequel, so I have high hopes for this one. Stephanie Perkins has established herself as a sort of queen of contemporary in my heart. Her characters are so real and lovable. I love her settings: France, San Francisco and now Manhattan! Only thing I'm going to complain about is the cover change. Yes, a lot of people prefer it but I liked the funky little cliche covers. That's alright though, I'll live.
