Filled with intense and important friendships, a wonderful warts-and-all family, shiveringly good romance, and sharp, witty dialogue, this story from Emma Mills (First & Then) is about finding the people you never knew you needed. Sloane isn't expecting to fall in love with a group of friends when she moves from New York to Florida--especially not a group of friends so intense, so layered with private tragedies and secret codes, so all-consuming. Yet that's exactly what happens. And it will lead her (and, um, her dad) on a life-changing adventure. Sloane becomes closest to Vera, a social-media star who lights up any room, and Gabe, Vera's twin brother and the most serious person Sloane's ever met. When a beloved painting by the twins' late mother goes missing, Sloane takes on the responsibility of tracking it down, a journey that takes her across state lines--and ever deeper into the twins' lives. Praise for This Adventure Ends: With taut, realistic dialogue, [Mills] expertly crafts blossoming friendships and nascent romances. --Publishers Weekly Immensely enjoyable. --Booklist

Review quote

With taut, realistic dialogue, [Mills] expertly crafts blossoming friendships and nascent romances. --Publishers Weekly Immensely enjoyable. --Booklist "Fans of romances, friend-ensemble novels, and literary fiction can thus all find their own level of enjoyment here." --The Bulletin First & Then: With sporadic references to Jane Austen's famous characters and wickedly inventive language, Mills closely observes the social milieu of an American high school.... A fresh, smart, inventive, and altogether impressive debut." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
