#BookReview: August and Everything After by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski

About the Book:

Summer on the New Jersey shore offers Quinn a new start at life and love, but only if she can come to terms with her past 

Graduation can't come soon enough. 


Desperate for a fresh start, Quinn is eager to escape to her aunt's house on the New Jersey shore for the summer…away from teenage drama and having to answer everyone's questions about "what comes next" after high school.

Quinn can't bear to focus on the future.


 She doesn't even think she deserves one—not after her best friend died in a car accident that Quinn feels responsible for. 

But when Quinn meets Malcolm, a musician who has been trying to escape his own demons, she starts to believe in second chances.

My Review: Well this one didn't work for me at all. The story felt very flat and the characters just didn't mesh well for me either. The romance felt very rushed and for this story it didn't work for me at all.  The story itself just wasn't what I thought it was going to be and I DNFed this one around 40%.
