Emily's Waiting on:

Title: The Last Best Story
Author: Maggie Lehrman
Genre: YA Contemporary
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Publication Date: August 7th, 2018

Summary: Rose Regnero was a star reporter for her high school paper, destined for a career in journalism, when she abruptly quit two months ago, leaving behind her very-nearly-sort-of-boyfriend and editor-in-chief, Grant. Now she is trying to be normal at her senior prom, with a new boy and new interests, and isn’t looking back.
Grant was totally blindsided when Rose walked away from the Gazette. After all, they’d dedicated their lives to it for the past four years, had even planned on majoring in journalism together at Northwestern—which is why Grant is determined to entice Rose back. But whether it’s really to the paper or to him he’s not entirely sure.
When an alarm is set off at prom and the school goes on lockdown, Grant discovers that someone is loose in the building with a gun. But Rose, caught outside of the gym, knows differently. Will her instincts for a good story win out against her resolve to leave Grant and the paper behind?
After reading the summary for this book, I was intrigued by the fact the Rose quit so abruptly. Right away I wondered if there was a reason for her quitting. There has to be more than just saying you're done and leaving. I love novels like this that have little mysteries throughout. I feel that books like that keep me turning the page. Overall, this seems like a cute, easy read, good for a warm day on the beach (yes I'm aware it's March but a girl can dream). Be sure to leave your opinions below!

  1. I won't lie, I requested this book because of the cover. It's really pretty. But I also like the whole wanting to win her back part and what made her leave part.
