One Last Stop

Casey McQuinston |  Fiction

2021, 422 pages

This is simply a weird experience.  I thought One Last Stop sounded like a fun book to read.  Time travel; two young women, Jane and August, who meet on the Q Train in New York and then both religiously keep the same commute so they might run into each other again; a budding lesbian romance; bizarre and interesting roommates for August (our main character).  The dialogue is delicious.  Actually, the delicious and witty conversations that occur among 20-somethings in NYC are rather unbelievable and stretch credibility.

Finally, after 100 pages, I decided to do a little research. Is this a YA book?  It just seems so shallow and targets an immature audience.  It is not Young Adult …. The target audience is 18-30.  If I were 18-30 I think I would be insulted by the grade level of this book, its lack of depth, its simplicity.  As someone who’s WAY older than 30, I have to shut it down now.  I don’t recommend One Last Stop at all. Though your teenage child or grandchild might enjoy it.
