"August has moved to New York because she wants to start something new—a sentiment shared by 20-somethings everywhere. She doesn't expect that 'something new' to come in the form of a fellow Q-train commuter named Jane who has found herself stuck on the train...and in time. The romance at the heart of this book is sweet, sexy, and time-bendingly magical, but what really hooked me was getting to watch August navigate the unfamiliarity of a new city, and new adulthood. Casey McQuiston perfectly captures the fear and uncertainty of being responsible for yourself for the first time, as well as the joys of making new friends and building queer families. Jane is fun, mysterious, and canny—and just like August, is learning herself in new ways that are both exhilarating and terrifying. If you're looking for a book to bring you home, this is it."
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
For cynical twenty-three-year-old August, moving to New York City is supposed to prove her right: that things like magic and cinematic love stories don’t exist, and the only smart way to go through life is alone. She can’t imagine how waiting tables at a 24-hour pancake diner and moving in with too many weird roommates could possibly change that. And there’s certainly no chance of her subway commute being anything more than a daily trudge through boredom and electrical failures.
But then, there’s this gorgeous girl on the train.
Jane. Dazzling, charming, mysterious, impossible Jane. Jane with her rough edges and swoopy hair and soft smile, showing up in a leather jacket to save August’s day when she needed it most. August’s subway crush becomes the best part of her day, but pretty soon, she discovers there’s one big problem: Jane doesn’t just look like an old school punk rocker. She’s literally displaced in time from the 1970s, and August is going to have to use everything she tried to leave in her own past to help her. Maybe it’s time to start believing in some things, after all.
Casey McQuiston’s One Last Stop is a magical, sexy, big-hearted romance where the impossible becomes possible as August does everything in her power to save the girl lost in time.
