One Last Stop
Written by Casey McQuiston
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin
A Novel Full of Wit, Charm, and a Magical Twist
MY HEART. OH MY HEART. This book will absolutely go down as one of my top five favorite books of the year (and top three so far). I loved RED, WHITE, AND ROYAL BLUE by the same author, but this book was so much better--in my opinion. McQuiston friggin delivered… and delivered hard. I read this book as a kickstart to Pride Month, but really this book would be the perfect start to any month!
A book with LGBTQIA+ representation, magical realism, historical fiction, romance, comedy, and sexy, curvy characters--all built into one book! What more could you ask for?
This novel is full of wit, charm, and magic. I loved all the wonderfully quirky and unique characters. McQuiston touched on the way August’s upbringing sometimes hurt her but was also something that made her skilled and powerful. I adored--yet it also saddened me--seeing Jane’s journey unravel while McQuiston respectfully displays so much queer history through her and others. The novel explores all sides of the relationship between August and Jane without hesitation.
