"From the New York Times bestselling author of Red, White & Royal Blue comes a new romantic comedy that will stop readers in their tracks... "Dreamy, other worldly, smart, swoony, thoughtful, hilarious - all in all, exactly what you'd expect from Casey McQuiston!" - Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of The Proposal and Party for Two Cynical twenty-three-year old August doesn't believe in much. She doesn't believe in psychics, or easily forged friendships, or finding the kind of love they make movies about. And she certainly doesn't believe her ragtag band of new roommates, her night shifts at a 24-hour pancake diner, or her daily subway commute full of electrical outages are going to change that. But then, there's Jane. Beautiful, impossible Jane. All hard edges with a soft smile and swoopy hair and saving August's day when she needed it most. The person August looks forward to seeing on the train every day. The one who makes her forget about the cities she lived in that never seemed to fit, and her fear of what happens when she finally graduates, and even her cold-case obsessed mother who won't quite let her go. And when August realizes her subway crush is impossible in more ways than one-namely, displaced in time from the 1970s-she thinks maybe it's time to start believing. Casey McQuiston's One Last Stop is a sexy, big-hearted romance where the impossible becomes possible as August does everything in her power to save the girl lost in time"-- Provided by publisher.

This can't be the last stop! submitted by literary_punk on June 13, 2021, 7:43pm McQuiston is very quickly becoming one of my must-read/must-recommend authors. I never expected that I would enjoy modern romance as much as I am. (Though, since this has a bit of magic in it, that may be why I liked it so well.)

My marker for really good books lately (this year so far, anyways) is how late I'm willing to stay up and read. Can I put it down/aside for a night, or do I NEED TO KNOW what happens RIGHT NOW?

What I want now is like a little novella about Isaiah. Or short stories about him, Wes, Niko, & Myla. Basically, I want more.

Unexpectedly Fun submitted by kerenemoore on July 4, 2021, 11:19pm This book isn't all-in sci-fi. It's regular fiction with a taste of supernatural. It's very New York, young, tough, and hopeful. The characters are gritty-- the main character and others unwilling to be touched by sentimental crap or romantic ventures. But then someone from outside of their reality scope interrupts that plan (a female punk from the '70s appears stranded and stuck on the Q Line). The main character falls in love with her and she and her roommates devise a heist to get the time traveler un-stuck. It may sound cheesy, but the reader will want to know what happens. There are multiple stories, all solved and resolved by the end. Very worth the read.

Unique and so good submitted by Elizabethreads on July 23, 2021, 11:22am I will read whatever Casey writes, even if it's a grocery list. This author has their own unique style of storytelling, and it feels really fresh and fun. The main character, August is cynical and hesitant, but longs to be hopeful. Her found family, full of well-developed queer characters, practically leap off the page. This story has a lot of heart, a bit of time-travel, and packs a wallop of nostalgia.

Great sci-fi twist on a rom-com submitted by A2AE on June 30, 2022, 11:02am I loved the main characters in this book, and McQuiston's character development is the best. I love August, her roommates, and everyone else in the book. It's vivid, engaging, and a fantastic read.

Unexpected fantasy submitted by bjkoch on July 15, 2022, 3:40pm and not the romance

Only okay submitted by bookasaurusray on July 27, 2022, 10:28am I liked the story, but not my favorite by them. The story was good, but you sometimes have to suspend your disbelief.

Supernatural rom-com submitted by pamhockey25 on August 7, 2022, 2:30pm A fun read where the past intersects the present. Jane is trapped on the Q with only her bookbag. August meets her on the train and is able to communicate with her. It takes a while for the women to figure out what's happening. Jane has no idea she's trapped on the Q, and August figures out how to bring her into the current timeline. While this is the core of the story, it is much more than that with excellent characters. Recommended

PSA: Easier to get this through Overdrive! submitted by redwood on November 30, 2022, 8:02am In case you, like me, have spent forever waiting for AADL's too few copies of this delightful book, I wanted to note that it's much faster right now to get it through the library's Overdrive ebook subscription.

very cute! submitted by michalkama on July 11, 2023, 10:25am I LOVED THIS BOOK; the buildup, the mystery, the ending and her roommates. Everything about this book was AMAZING.

Good, Queer, Fun! submitted by annawhitney on August 26, 2023, 3:16pm I really got a kick out of this. In particular, it was fun to read a story about young queer adults that felt real and not watered down for the teen audience or made more scandalous for an adult audience. Additionally, I love the way this story balances queer history with the queer present. That's hard to do in a romance, or a sci fi, or in any book! A great marriage of many beautiful things.

Written for Me submitted by clarka on June 21, 2024, 4:12am I have read very few books in my life that have felt like they were written for me. This was one of them! I was giggling and kicking my feet the whole time.

Romance book with a sci-fi twist submitted by medward5 on July 6, 2024, 9:21am I could not put the book down after the 3rd chapter. I love reading about August and Jane and figuring out how August was going to save Jane. It’s not like the other romance books you read.
