Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She’s ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications, and to maybe let her childhood best friend Sebastian know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be epic—one of opportunities and chances.
Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything.
Now Lena isn’t looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian might never forgive her for what happened.
For what she let happen.
With the guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when she and her friends’ entire existences have been redefined? How can she move on when tomorrow isn’t even guaranteed?
So, as you guys are probably aware, I'm a huge fan of Jennifer's books! Her contemporary books are ones that I've just started getting in to, and I don't usually like contemporary but Jennifer's books are always well written, intriguing and hit me right in the feels, If There's No Tomorrow is no exception.
The opening is ominous, and I had some idea of what was going to happen from it, but I spent the first part of the book waiting for it to happen and kind of on edge because I wasn't sure who was going to be affected by what would happen or what the exact details where. I did end up being surprised by how it all unfolded!
Lena was such a relatable main character, and she was a book and history nerd too so she was basically me! She and Sebastian where so cute and there was fluff when it came to the romance but there was also angst because it wouldn't be one of Jennifer's books without some angst to go with your fluff!
Lena's journey throughout the book was really emotional for me to read, she struggled to overcome the guilt she was feeling and what happened and it was very realistically written and didn't shy away from the tougher parts.
If There's No Tomorrow has a message to it along with the romance and the fluffier parts, and it's a relatable one too. Most of us have probably been in Lena's situation before she got in to that car. With the decision to make and some of us may have made the wrong one, while others may have made the right one. Her journey throughout the book was tough and it was emotional but seeing her make it in the end, come out the other side...was amazing and inspiring.
