Remind Me How This Ends by Gabrielle Tozer
Published by HarpersCollins in March 2017
Layla Montgomery’s life fell apart at thirteen. After her mum died in a shock accident, Layla’s grieving father packed their bags and forced her to leave behind everything she’d ever known.
Milo Dark has been stuck on pause since the Year 12 exams. His long-term girlfriend moved 300 kilometres away for uni, his mates bailed for bigger things, and he’s convinced he missed the reminder to plan out the rest of his life.
As kids, Layla and Milo shared everything – their secrets, a treehouse and weekends at the river. But they haven’t spoken since her mum’s funeral. That is, until Layla shows up five years later in his parents’ bookshop without so much as a text message.
Pretty soon they’re drawn into a tangled mess that guarantees someone will get hurt. And while it’s a summer they’ll never forget, is it one they’ll want to remember?
This adorable boy-meets-girl-again story charmed me from the very beginning and I couldn’t it put down! There’s something about stories set in that time between high school and adulthood that I really love. It’s such an emotional time of your life – it’s exciting, confusing and scary all at once, especially if you don’t know what you want to do next and with your life, and Gabrielle Tozer captured this feeling beautifully in this book.
