Country clubs and garden parties. The last thing Cassandra wants is to spend the summer before her senior year marooned in a snooty Massachusetts shore town. Cass craves drama and adventure, which is hard when she just feels stuck.
But when a dreamy stranger shows up on her family’s private beach, claiming that it is his property—and that the year is 1925—Cass is swept into a mystery a hundred years in the making. As she searches for answers in the present, Cass discovers a truth that thrusts Lawrence’s life into jeopardy. It won’t matter which century he is from if he won’t live to see tomorrow.
Desperate to save the boy who’s come to mean everything to her, Cassandra must find a way to change history…or risk losing Lawrence forever.

"A beach house, a mystery, and time-travel love make Until We Meet Again a romantic, engaging read."—Deb Caletti, National Book Award Finalist for Honey, Baby, Sweetheart
Until We Meet Again!
Until We Meet Again by Renee Collins is a young adult paranormal romance. It is the summer before her senior year and Cassandra is forced to spend the summer with her mother and step-father at the Massachusetts North Shore (a rich community on the beach). Cassandra is a bored teenager who would rather be anywhere else. One night she decides to swim in the neighbor’s private pool and is caught by their security guard. She is grounded by her mother. Cassandra has to go to a party that evening (as punishment) and goes out to the beach. She sees a light flash from the moon and then sees Lawrence. He is also avoiding a party in his honor.
They gradually discover that they are both living in the same house but many years apart. Lawrence Foster is from 1925 and staying with his uncle, Ned Foster for the summer. The can only meet on this stretch of beach. Why are they able to see each other and how is it happening? Why only this stretch of beach behind the house? Cassandra starts researching Lawrence and his family to find out what happened to him. The more time they spend together, the more they fall in love. Are they destined to be together?
Until We Meet Again is a story of two star-crossed lovers. I am afraid that I did not enjoy reading Until We Meet Again. I found Cassandra to overly dramatic and very spoiled. There is really no chemistry between Lawrence and Cassandra (at least none that came across in the novel). I found Until We Meet Again to be very superficial. There is depth to the characters (we never even got Cassandra’s last name). I liked the story idea, but not the final product. The ending was unsatisfactory (and just made me call the book a bunch of twaddle). I give Until We Meet Again 2 out of 5 stars (I like Lawrence and the ghost idea).
I received a complimentary copy of Until We Meet Again from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Until We Meet Again
I am an 8th grader and this book was at our book fair. I loved it. I am a sucker for romance, drama, mystery, and some excellent plot twists. I didn't see the ending coming and it made me happy and sad at the same time. This book is great for teenagers looking for something a little different! I loved it and would definitely recommend it!!
Until We Meet Again
I'm a big fan of YA fiction, and thoroughly enjoyed this book. I would have preferred to see the characters all develop more richly and more detail into the nature of the time rift and the effects it was likely having, but it was still perfectly enjoyable. The final beach scene had me ugly crying on my couch on a rainy day, but the ending was perfect. I will read this author's work again.
