Summary

From the critically acclaimed author of The List comes a stunning new novel about a girl who must say good-bye to everything she knows after a storm wreaks havoc on her hometown.

What if your town was sliding underwater, and everyone was ordered to pack up and leave? How would you and your friends spend your last days together?

While the adults plan for the future, box up their possessions, and find new places to live, Keeley Hewitt and her friends decide to go out with a bang. There are parties in abandoned houses. Canoe races down Main Street. The goal is to make the most of every minute they still have together. And for Keeley that means taking one last shot at the boy she's loved forever.

There's a weird sort of bravery that comes from knowing there's nothing left to lose. You might do things you normally wouldn't. Or say things you shouldn't. The reward almost always outweighs the risk.

Almost. It's the end of Aberdeen but the beginning of Keeley's first love story. It just might not turn out the way she thought. Because it's not always clear what's worth fighting for and what you should let become a memory.

I struggled so much to finish this book but I'm glad I did it, the ending was very beautiful.

Narrator ruin this book for me

I couldn’t get past the voice of the narrator. She sounded like she had a stuffed up nose. I’ll head over to my local library & just read this book the old fashioned way

Long and drawn out

Definitely a teen book - being an adult it was a little young for me. Good narration

Loved this

This was an amazing story.
Jordana Marie is my favorite narrator out of 20 + audio books, so far.
Wonderful way to keep motivated while cleaning or winding down.

Tragic teen love

The voice remind me of the Hank Green novels An Absolutely remarkable thing but less theatrical. The story is cute, takes your back to high school dances and love stories, I enjoyed the development

Emotional Rollercoaster

I agree with the other reviews that the narrator sounds like she had a cold. It was difficult to listen to the beginning, but I found the story captivating enough to keep me listening and then it didn't bother me as much.

As for the story, I wanted a happier story, but it was quite stressful to listen to the main character continue to make mistakes. Otherwise, it was a good story that kept me engaged and the pain and confusion of the situation was portrayed well. I just felt like I wanted more from the ending to make up for the stress.

The Last Boy and Girl in the World

I loved Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian and wanted to give her other books a try. The Last Boy and Girl in the World was pretty interesting.

Skip this but read the review first

First of all I am going to say that the narrator of the book sounds like she has a stuffed up nose for the first half of the book. The book also gave me anxiety almost the whole time because of all the dumb decisions that Keely made. I also don’t like that the book all came together at the end all at once instead of slowly. I hated the end. If you are insanely bored and want a book to listen to read this but if you have other options then go with those. Thank you for reading the review and have a great day. :)
