About the Book:
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 epic—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 might 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 her and her friends' entire existences have been redefined? How can she move on when tomorrow isn't even guaranteed?

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: Realising that I should have DNFed this one!! I wasted a few hours of my life that I will NEVER get back!! 

Check out author's other books or related books? I love her other books so yes this one will not deter me from checking out others she releases. 

Recommend this book? NOT unless you love cliches

Notes and Opinions: 
If There’s No Tomorrow was the clichést book I’ve read in some time. And man there have been some bad ones. In this book, you will be told how much the main character loves books. I get it! REALLY I fully understand that she loves to read, we don’t need to be told a million times through the book!  Three times is good!   

The next thing is you have the super hot, super sexy, next door neighbor, the boy next door that the main character is totally in love with! OMG, I irrevocably love him.......excuse me while I roll my eyes at the use of that word!  I really hate seeing. It after Twilight went huge all you read now is smiles touching peoples eyes and how irrevocably someone loves someone else. Those two things should be BANNED in young adult novels. 

The big reveal about the mistake that was made was not done well at all. I think that Lena has more brains than what she had during that choice and well for me it just felt out of the norm for her. I get the guilt afterward and that was really done well. But the execution of it happening just didn’t seem right. 

*Highlight for spoiler*
*She gets in a car with a drunk driver and well everyone dies but her*

The ending was ok at best. This one really made me feel like the author needed to pop a book out quickly and well she just did something that came to mind. Let’s talk about a girl in love, a bad choice, and the consequences of that action it will be amazing. Well, it wasn’t. This one fell very short of my expectations via her other amazing titles. I just read her other one a few weeks ago The Problem with Forever. JLA knows how to write and she knows her contemporaries well. But this one just wasn’t on the same level with her others and it just wasn’t for me at all. 

Go Into This One Knowing: Clichés galore! And a LOT of PR for other books. Basically, this is the kind of contemporary that gives good contemporaries a bad name.
