Title: One Last Stop
Author: Casey McQuiston
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.
Oh wow, this was great and so refreshing!
I’m talking about the plot of course….it was so unique and I was on tenterhooks wondering how this was all going to pan out!
August moves into an apartment with the lovely, Miya, Nico and Wes and fits in (I bloomin loved them!) She gets a job at a pancake restaurant and has to take the subway there and to her classes. And that’s where she meets Jane. That’s where the magic begins!
As I said the plot was so unique. It goes to show the mysteries of the universe loves true love!
There was saving restaurants, high jinks, solving a mystery and it was heartbreaking, beautiful, humorous and deliously queer!
My fave though? The drag queen, Isiah. Annie Depressant. Too fabulous!

Glad you’ve enjoyed it! Myself, I found this book my least favorite by this author. But Red, White and Royal Blue was such a delight that that was to be expected.
