In this irresistible story, Kasie West explores the timeless question of what to do when you fall for the person you least expect. Witty and romantic, this paperback original from a fan favorite is perfect for fans of Stephanie Perkins and Morgan Matson.
When Autumn Collins finds herself accidentally locked in the library for an entire weekend, she doesn’t think things could get any worse. But that’s before she realizes that Dax Miller is locked in with her. Autumn doesn’t know much about Dax except that he’s trouble. Between the rumors about the fight he was in (and that brief stint in juvie that followed it) and his reputation as a loner, he’s not exactly the ideal person to be stuck with. Still, she just keeps reminding herself that it is only a matter of time before Jeff, her almost-boyfriend, realizes he left her in the library and comes to rescue her.
Only he doesn’t come. No one does.
Instead it becomes clear that Autumn is going to have to spend the next couple of days living off vending-machine food and making conversation with a boy who clearly wants nothing to do with her. Except there is more to Dax than meets the eye. As he and Autumn first grudgingly, and then not so grudgingly, open up to each other, Autumn is struck by their surprising connection. But can their feelings for each other survive once the weekend is over and Autumn’s old life, and old love interest, threaten to pull her from Dax’s side?
+ LOCKED IN A LIBRARY
BEST BOOK EVER?!
Oh dear lordy people this book was goooooood. I am most likely going to post another review of this book when it comes out so it could be spoiler-full. I thought this book was only going to be romantic cheesy and just plain lovey dovey. But hell nah. This book does go into some stuff that I wasn’t expecting and I am so freaking glad it was like that.
Let’s commence with Autumn. She gets locked up in a library. Already love her. I am a sucker for a clumsy character because of how clumsy I am. She is very unique to me at least, and I wish I could see more of her. She has a teeny not so tiny love problem going on in the book. Two guys. I wanted to hate one of them but I could bring myself to it URGHHHH.
Dax is love. Dax is life.
Again very unique character, he comes from foster homes something that isn’t common where Autumn is from and he you know picks on her because of that. And the book really gets into some stuff. Stuff that I didn’t even know but now I am glad that I do. Autumn also has some problems with anxiety and the books really shows the true being of a person with anxiety and really love how Kasie put that in, because I also deal with that and again with whole relatable thing.
The story itself doesn’t entirely focus on the premise of them being locked in a library. That is something I think readers get confused on. The whole locked up in a library think is about a third of the book, the rest is what happens after the library. What happens with Autumn and her friends (which I really would’ve liked to seen more background to) and that other guy. But secretly between you and me, the library is my favorite part 🙂
Guys I really recommend this book. I love all of Kasie’s books and I feel like this is one of the best. When the release date gets closer I am for sure going to be posting a more detailed review of the book so look out for that 🙂
