Description

Sloane isn't expecting to fall in with a group of friends when she moves from New York to Florida—especially not a group of friends so intense, so in love, so all-consuming. Yet that's exactly what happens.

Sloane becomes closest to Vera, a social-media star who lights up any room, and Gabe, Vera's twin brother and the most serious person Sloane's ever met. When a beloved painting by the twins' late mother goes missing, Sloane takes on the responsibility of tracking it down, a journey that takes her across state lines—and ever deeper into the twins' lives.

Filled with intense and important friendships, a wonderful warts-and-all family, shiveringly good romantic developments, and sharp, witty dialogue, this story is about finding the people you never knew you needed.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 12, 2016 – When Sloane Finch, 17, and her family move to a small Florida beach town from her childhood home in New York City, she expects to trudge through her last year of high school as a loner. That's before she comes to the defense of cute-but-awkward Gabe Fuller at a party and is quickly befriended by his gorgeous, Instagram-famous twin sister, Vera. Sloane, whose father, Everett, writes tragic romance novels, quickly becomes entangled with the twins and their best friends Remy and Aubrey. The foursome is drawn to Sloane's quick wit and sharp tongue, and Sloane is drawn to the intricacies, secrets, and complications of their lifelong friendships. Having never really had friends, Sloane misses a lot of social cues from her new friends and turns to her father for help. Through the skillful weaving of Everett's authoritative advice, Mills (First & Then) seamlessly creates art imitating life imitating art while bringing freshness to the familiar romantic conventions she invokes. With taut, realistic dialogue, she expertly crafts blossoming friendships and nascent romances. Ages 14 up.

Customer Reviews

A perfectly charming read!

THIS ADVENTURE ENDS by Emma Mills is a perfectly charming read! High school senior Sloane has recently moved to Florida with her family from New Jersey in an attempt to revive her famous father’s writing career. Sloane is a talented singer, but a bit of a loner. One night at a party she crosses paths with the charismatic twins Vera and Gabe, and quickly falls in with their crowd. What ensues is a sweet, intelligent, and richly layered story about love, loss, friendship, and growth. This book sucked me in so quickly that I accidentally read it in a single sitting. Perfect for a lazy afternoon of relaxation and basking in the feels!

Note: I received a FREE ARC (advanced reader copy) from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
