ARC Review: If There's No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Title: If There's No Tomorrow
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genre: YA Contemporary 
Publisher: Harlequin Teen 
Publication Date: Sept. 5, 2017
Summary: Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She's ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications and to maybe let her childhood best friend, Sebastian, know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be one of opportunities and chances. Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything.
Now Lena isn't looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian could never forgive her for what happened.
For what she let happen.
With the guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when tomorrow isn't even guaranteed?

If I haven't said it enough already, Jenn is one of my absolute favorite authors. I have yet to find a book the I didn't enjoy. If There's No Tomorrow is Jenn's newest stand alone contemporary and I was lucky enough to snag an advanced copy at BookCon. Once again, I wasn't disappointed by Jenn's latest page turner.

If There's No Tomorrow tells the story of Lena Wise leading up to and after she suffers a terrible accident. Throughout the book, Lena is struggling to deal with the events of the accident and her attraction toward her best friend Sebastian. Lena feels guilty every day for what happened and she's too scared to tell the truth for fear of what her friends will think of her.

Minor spoilers
This book is an excellent example of the horrors of drinking and driving. It gives a clear example of exactly why you shouldn't drink and drive or get in a car with a drunk driver. The depression and guilt Lena feels toward what happened, is a feeling no one should ever have to feel. I felt sick for her just reading about what she experienced and how real it felt. Lena is extremely strong for what she went through. Many people cant handle all that guilt, even when it wasn't really their fault. Although she did shut out hers friends, including Sebastian, she was able to overcome her emotions. She was able to talk to them about what really happened that night and was finally able to gain some closure. 

I really loved everything about this books. Lena's battle with her emotions felt so real as well as her relationship with Sebastian. I loved how the book was split in two parts, allowing the reader to hear Lena's story leading up to the accident and what happened after the accident. 

If There's No Tomorrow was an excellent read. Any fans of JLA or YA contemporary should totally give this a chance. The book will be published on Sept. 5th, 2017 so be sure to pick up a copy and give it a try!
