Summary from Goodreads:
What if your town was sliding underwater and everyone was ordered to pack up and leave? How would you and your friends spend your last days together?
While the adults plan for the future, box up their possessions, and find new places to live, Keeley Hewitt and her friends decide to go out with a bang. There are parties in abandoned houses. Canoe races down Main Street. The goal is to make the most of every minute they still have together.
And for Keeley, that means taking one last shot at the boy she’s loved forever.
There’s a weird sort of bravery that comes from knowing there’s nothing left to lose. You might do things you normally wouldn’t. Or say things you shouldn’t. The reward almost always outweighs the risk.
It’s the end of Aberdeen, but the beginning of Keeley’s first love story. It just might not turn out the way she thought. Because it’s not always clear what’s worth fighting for and what you should let become a memory.
Why I am Waiting for The Last Boy and Girl in the World:
This book just seems to have so many interesting elements to it’s story that I just can’t help but feel drawn to it. The race against time, the possibility of a cute love story, or just seeing who people react when their world is “ending”. I also follow the authors’ social media pages and have read a few of the excerpts that she has posted and it just seems like such a cute book.
What are you waiting for this Wednesday?
