Love ignites in the City That Never Sleeps, but can it last?

Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on introspective cartoonist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to confront the challenges every young couple must face, including family drama, uncertainty about their college futures, and the very real possibility of being apart.

Featuring cameos from fan-favorites Anna, Étienne, Lola, and Cricket, this sweet and sexy story of true love—set against the stunning backdrops of New York City, Paris, and Barcelona—is a swoonworthy conclusion to Stephanie Perkins’s beloved series.

Stephanie Perkins did it again. I absolutely loved this novel and read it in one sitting. It’s my favorite of the three and I wish it wasn’t the last in the series. At times it felt as if it was too good to be true, but then there were times when the pain and issues that arise in realistic relationships came into play. Those moments tore my heart into bite-sized pieces. The relationship between Isla and Josh was adorable and I love the cameos from the first two books. Seeing Anna and Etienne, and Lola and Cricket again made me giddy. Overall this was one of the best contemporary books I’ve read this year! Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys YA Contemporary.
