Review quote

'A perfect summer read... Harcourt brilliantly captures the feeling of being sixteen and on the edge of the rest of your life' - The Bookseller 'If you're looking for a summer road trip book, I have the perfect one for you... The Last Summer of Us is a fun and sparkling debut with one of the best slow-burning romances on the YA scene since Anna and the French Kiss' - The Mile Long Bookshelf 'Harcourt has written an assured and memorable debut novel. You cannot help but care about the carefully drawn characters because we ache when they grieve and laugh when they do (and they laugh a lot). It's raw, honest, identifiable; it's about growing up and the crossroads that we all face in life. It's a must-read for any teen' - Manchester Evening News "An uplifting, funny, warm, thought-provoking road trip through Wales. It's everything you want in a captivating summer read." - The Scotsman "Jared, Steffan, and Limpet are some of the most lovable and flawed teenagers ever... This trio of friends [could] compete with Harry, Hermione, and Ron in terms of camaraderie." - Real Rad Reads "Harcourt manages to effortlessly take us through a story of heartbreak, loss and teen angst while keeping this beautiful and heart-warming adventure of friendship, love and change alive and pulsing throughout." - Papertrail YA "A book about loss and change, friendship and love written in a gentle and often humorous tone." - The School Librarianshow more
