One night. A life-changing decision. And a list...
Of course Clare made a list. She creates lists for everything. That's just how she is.
But tonight is Clare and Aidan's last night before college and this list will decide their future, together or apart.
It takes them on a rollercoaster ride through their past - from the first hello in science class to the first conversation at a pizza joint, their first kiss at the beach and their first dance in a darkened gymnasium - all the way up to tonight.
A night of laughs, fresh hurts, last-minute kisses and an inevitable goodbye.
But will it be goodbye forever or goodbye for now?

How often do you get to read a book which is set in such a limited time-frame? Not very often. Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between is set in a mere 12 hours as Clare and Aidan try to decide their future. It’s a fleeting glimpse into their lives, but nevertheless an important moment. Yet somehow we get the impression of the entire relationship.

I loved that each chapter is a stop, an important moment of their relationships,  to witness not only the beginnings but also the ends.  Which helped to build up the relationship and to get more of an idea of the relationship.

Despite the premise of the will they / won’t they stay together I was rooting for Clare and Aidan.  There was times when I felt that even if it was difficult Clare was giving up too soon.

I loved all the fleeting glances into their pasts, and how it wasn’t just focused on their relationship but also those around them and how different life can be when you go off to University.

Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between is such a good book, quick and pretty perfect it left me wanting more. Which is always the best way to end a book I think 🙂
