Description

Us.

Me, Steffan and Jared.

Three best friends on a road trip to anywhere but here, because yesterday was my mother's funeral, Jared's stepdad wants nothing to do with him, and Steffan needs to visit his mum. Because it's the end of summer and because this could be the end of us, of Jared and Steffan and me.

This is the story of a road trip. A story of three best friends on a journey that will change their lives for ever. A story of love, lies, grief, friendship and growing up.

A story you'll never forget.

'Exquisitely sad and yet touchingly beautiful. And so, so real' Holly Bourne

Review quote

Exquisitely sad and yet touchingly beautiful. And so, so real. * Holly Bourne, author of The Manifesto on How to be Interesting * No self-respecting 16 year old will want to miss out on the hugely evocative The Last Summer of Us, which uncovers the hidden secrets of three teenagers as they set off on a road trip to see out the end of summer. * The Independent * A beautiful story of grief, friendship and hope, and one that has left me in complete awe. * Once Upon a Bookcase * A book that you will never forget as it is so interesting and exciting. * Shannon McCluskey, for lovereading4kids.co.uk * A great debut book about grief and the power of a good friendship... beautifully written and such an easy read, while I was reading I found myself completely caught up in everything that was going on. * Stacie Ball, for lovereading4kids.co.uk *
