Publisher's Summary

Romeo and Juliet meets One Hundred Years of Solitude in Emily Henry's brilliant follow-up to The Love That Split the World, about the daughter and son of two long-feuding families who fall in love while trying to uncover the truth about the strange magic and harrowing curse that has plagued their bloodlines for generations.
June O'Donnell - aka Junior, aka Jack, aka Jonathan O'Donnell IV, aka the first female O'Donnell firstborn - has always been haunted by her family's mythic but complicated legacy. As she prepares to begin her final year of high school, June is itching to leave behind her ghosts in Five Fingers, Michigan, and travel the world.
And then, just like it always happens to the O'Donnells, a painful glimmer from her past returns to mess everything up.
Enter Saul Angert, the eldest son of Eli Angert, aka June's late father's mortal enemy, back in town from a prestigious writing program to care for his ailing father. June can't seem to avoid Saul, whose very presence makes her ache with grief over her father, and soon the unthinkable happens: She finds she doesn't exactly hate the gruff, sarcastic, and strangely tender boy whom she was born to loathe.
When June and Saul accidentally stumble into a bit of the forest magic, they are allowed a glimpse into the past at the fateful, horrible moment that started all the trouble between their families. Now June doesn't know if this new discovery means she should hate the Angerts even more or if it's finally time for her - and all of the O'Donnells before her - to let go.

Romeo & Juliet? Tuck Everlasting? Something entirely new?

When you first start to read this book, you quickly assume you are getting a cleverly disguised Romeo &Juliet via June & Saul. Then the magical twists start happening and you feel like you entered the land of Tuck Everlasting.

The lovers are still star-crossed, but soon the memories take over and guide the journey. It's a fresh YA offering, that somehow left me a little dissatisfied, feeling a little bit like I did with Twilight since the hook was so one dimensional disputed the twists. Still, it's a fantastic and well-written story, and so very perfect for your summer reading pleasure.

I both read and listened and it was good both ways, and definitely hard to put down. If this review helped, please make sure and like it, thank you!

Beautifully Written and Performed Book... Didn't Care for Ending

Plot developed and developed and developed, and then the Ending not developed enough. Great audio performance and lovely writing. Wish ending justified the rest.
