#BookReview for The Story of Lee (The Story of Lee #3) by Sean Michael Wilson, Piarelle

Synopsis: In the final volume of The Story of Lee, Lee and Matt continue their studies and their relationship in the UK. With growing confidence Lee asserts herself more and Matt finds that he needs to change or challenge—change to be more the way she likes, or challenge her ideas and risk upsetting their relationship. Meanwhile a Chinese student becomes a rival to Lee's attentions, and Matt finds himself in both financial and existential trouble. Against the backdrop of increasing societal turmoil back in Hong Kong, Lee's father gets sick and she has a big decision to make: go back home to help or pursue an independent life in the UK?

My Review: This was a great ending to this story.  Another quick read for this story.  The artwork were great and the story was again spot on with the relationships and what the author was trying to do.  This will be a volume of titles that I will read over and over again.
