As stated above, I would like to go back and read the other books. But the good news is that I didn't get confused over the novella itself which was an added bonus! Dec 24, Hana Bilqisthi rated it liked it. Corinne is still unlikeable heroine and now she is control freak too. I can't believe she can't see that Bubby loves her.
But it is still fun read :.
Mar 17, Chelsea Barva-kertesz rated it liked it. So, I didn't realize that there is actually another book in between this book and Where I Belong. Had I known that, I would have read them in the correct order, but I still enjoyed this. I thought it was kind of strange that there was such a big time gap between the first book, and this one, and now I realize why.
This is a cute and quick read.
It is a novella, so you can read it in about an hour and a half, which is nice if you need something that doesn't get too serious. It picks up sometime So, I didn't realize that there is actually another book in between this book and Where I Belong. In fact, an entire summer has passed since she last saw, Bubby, the boy who she was with in Where I Belong. Corrinne is focused on the perfect night for the last night with her friends in New York before she goes off to college in Ithaca.
Unfortunately, things don't always go according as planned.

Set in New York City on Corinne's last night there before leaving for college, it follows Corinne's adventures trying to follow her own plan for the "perfect" last night and "perfect" goodbye while realizing that everything is changing and that despite the fact that she's looking forward to the future and scared to say goodbye to the present, she's still somewhat stuck in the past This novella features Corinne and other characters from the author's novels Where I Belong and A Long Way From You.
Set in New York City on Corinne's last night there before leaving for college, it follows Corinne's adventures trying to follow her own plan for the "perfect" last night and "perfect" goodbye while realizing that everything is changing and that despite the fact that she's looking forward to the future and scared to say goodbye to the present, she's still somewhat stuck in the past because she never really said goodbye to her old boyfriend in Texas where she'd spent a period of time in Where I Belong. This was such a cute story!
Reading it immediately reminded me of why I liked the other novels so much: they're simple but sweet and just plain fun, with an underlying layer of thoughtfulness. Although you wouldn't need to read the aforementioned two books in order to understand this one, I'd highly recommend it! A number of old characters were referenced and it was nice to see how they'd grown since their first introduction way back when. The story was easy to relate to, as everyone's had to say goodbyes at some point and had their plans completely overrun! Although there were a few coincidences in this novella, most were explained later and I liked that the story didn't simply rely on things that would never actually happen in real life.
Corinne's emotions and actions were nicely done, and I easily related to her throughout this entire story. It was such a lovely way to tie up everything from the books, although I'm hoping there is still more to come because it ended on such a sweet note that simply makes you want to return to this world! My only quibble about this book is that all the characters were eighteen, yet they were running around to various bars and ordered drinks at restaurants and no one batted an eye.
It was mentioned, later on, that they all had fake IDs, but it still seemed kind of odd that they had such easy access to alcohol and no one ever called them on it. That part didn't ring true to me. That said, I did really enjoy this overall and highlighted a couple of passages I really liked.

Last I'd read, he and Corrine were about to ride off into the Broken Spoke sunset where they would live happily ever after even if only in my imagination. But apparently not. Corrine is back in NYC and she has big plans for her last night before This was fast, flirty and fun. Corrine is back in NYC and she has big plans for her last night before she heads off to college.
Plans that do not involve anyone else's. But one tinkle break leads to another and before she knows it, Corrine comes face to face with the guy she thought was in her future, not her past. Over the course of the story, we find out exactly what happened between Bubby and Corrine and two things jumped out at me. Not once did they get questioned or carded. Overall, I think this was a good addition to the books. It's a clean read which was also refreshing, and fans of Bubbine will enjoy it.

This will make some money and help with the sales for You Belong with Me since P. Goodbye leads into that story. That is a costly signup.
Shorter novels are hard to write well and a half-hearted effort could backfire. I also read a novella collection by a group of great authors of full-length fiction, but their novellas lacked that punch and it soured me against their books. It is a lot of story to get into a few words. Be very cautious about the non-competition clause in your contract. Like I said, my agent had it written into my contract.
