VeganYANerds - I really enjoyed this book too plus the book that comes before it, like Jana mentioned, it’s called Before That Night.

I found myself wanting to yell the same things at Eliza, I was sure Cooper still liked her and I was hoping for a happy ending throughout the story.

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - Thanks a lot, Magan! I just added this to me huge, long list of books! I’m with you on speaking in public. It terrifies me. This sounds really good, and I bet I will really be able to relate to the main girl. I’m going to get it!

Oh, and on Amazon there’s a prequel novella for this book. It’s called “Before that Night”. It’s cheap, too!

Thanks for your review! 🙂

Magan - Ginger, that is awesome! I love that I’ll be able to know how you talk when I read your reviews, too! 🙂

I loved the running around and completing all the different tasks in this book. I enjoy movement and travel, learning about new things. I thought the concept was really unique, too.

And um, no karaoke for me anytime soon. I AM A TERRIBLE SINGER!

Ginger @ GReads! - So I totally just read this review with Magan’s voice in my head, ha!

I actually really enjoyed this book when I read it awhile back. I like when stories go down in one night. And I love when there’s a mission at hand. Great review! Loved the addition of your own personal fears. So when are we going to sing karaoke? 😉

Estelle - I agree with you that this was a fast read for sure. I just wish it wasn’t as shallow as it turned out to be. Cooper was so one dimensional to me. And I would have freaked out if someone stole my journal and made me do this kind of stuff. Ah! It makes me feel anxious! 🙂
