On the night before they leave for college, Clare and Aidan only have one thing left to do: figure out whether they should stay together or break up. Over the course of twelve hours, they'll retrace the steps of their relationship, trying to find something in their past that might help them decide what their future should be. The night will lead them to friends and family, familiar landmarks and unexpected places, hard truths and surprising revelations. But as the clock winds down and morning approaches, so does their inevitable goodbye. The question is, will it be goodbye for now or goodbye forever?
This new must-read novel from Jennifer E. Smith, author of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, explores the difficult choices that must be made when life and love lead in different directions.

My Rating:


Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between is perfect for any fans of fluffy YA contemporary romance, especially if you've read and enjoyed any of the authors previous work. Following Clare and Aidan the night before they leave for college as they retrace all their firsts, having been dating for 2 years and unsure of whether to break up or not, this is such a realistic story. It's fast paced and fun but brings all the feels. I did feel like I didn't connect to the characters as much as I would've liked, but I enjoyed their story and finding out all their history. Some parts were just too fun and cute for words and overall I really enjoyed this one and, as an avid fan of Jennifer E. Smith, was not disappointed with her newest release.

Read this if you love fluffy contemporary that's realistic. Because Jennifer E. Smith always tackles the biggest cliches and tropes about love (Love At First Sight, Falling For A Famous Person, Long Distance Relationships*) with so much realism that it's painful, okay? It's painful.

Would I Recommend This? Definitely!
Who To? Fans of all the fluff and feels.
Will I read more from this author(or series)? #CantStopWontStop

  1. I love her books, so I'm dying to read this. I've read lots of mixed reviews for it, but I'm still all for it.

    1. I'm also up for a Jennifer E. Smith book, regardless of reviews. She's one of my favorites and even though this book wasn't my favorite of hers I still really enjoyed it. Hope you enjoy it and let me know your thoughts! =)

  2. I think it's incredibly sad that I have yet to pick up one of her books, and I think the reason is for the tropes that she uses. But I think one day, when I get the chance to, I'll pick them up! At least I'm glad you liked this one Shay! You can never go wrong with FUN AND FLUFF :D

    1. It is incredibly sad, Val, it is. ;)

      I can understand that, she does take cliches and use them as her basis, but I LOVE them. And exactly, fun and fluff, two of my favorite things! I do suggest Statistical Probality first, by the way. I haven't read it in a long time but it's still my favorite. =)
