I was given this Advanced Reader Copy by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Honestly, I don’t even know where to start with this book. I could just write “go buy and read this book” over and over. If I could, I’d give it 10 stars. It’s literally everything the world needs right now. I enjoyed McQuiston’s Red White and Royal Blue, but this took my love to a whole new level. There were some magical elements to this book but I really wouldn’t call it a fantasy. It is just a super special book. The characters were amazing and I wish I could be friends with them in real life. Each character was diverse in their own way, bringing together the storyline of staying true to yourself and surrounding yourself with people who make you feel special. This is a book about romance, finding yourself, and more importantly, friendship.
August is a twenty-three year old who is so cynical because of her upbringing, she’s destined to be alone. She moves to New York in hopes of finding something in her life she’s been missing. She waits tables and has some very strange roommates. It’s not until she starts school and meets Jane on the Q train during her commute that things get interesting. Jane is gorgeous and mysterious and August needs to get to know her. As Jane becomes a part of Augusts’ every day life, she finds out one thing that could ruin their budding relationship… Jane is stuck on the subway, displaced in time from the 1970s, and can’t figure out how to fix it. August uses her investigative skills learned from years of dealing with her mother, to try and get Jane off the subway. Along the way she makes real friendships and starts to truly believe in something.
"August has the sexual powers of a goldfish and the emotional vocabulary to match.”
