    At eighteen, Ginny Zinny Beale is a lighthearted, fun, brave girl with a close group of friends and brother with whom she can unite against their uptight mother But one night changes all of that Someone sets the town s high school on fire and in the aftermath, the father of Ginny s best friend, Gray, is dead The townspeople look for someone to blame leaving most of it on a troubled teen but Ginny learns some news that changes her entire world She tells no one, but the secret alters her l At eighteen, Ginny Zinny Beale is a lighthearted, fun, brave girl with a close group of friends and brother with whom she can unite against their uptight mother But one night changes all of that Someone sets the town s high school on fire and in the aftermath, the father of Ginny s best friend, Gray, is dead The townspeople look for someone to blame leaving most of it on a troubled teen but Ginny learns some news that changes her entire world She tells no one, but the secret alters her life and leaves her an outcast among her friends and family Over the next twenty years, Ginny transitions, settling down, returning to her hometown and marrying Harris, a professor They have a daughter, Avery, and Ginny cares for her mother, who is dying But when scandal rocks the town again this time focused on Harris Ginny has to make some choices It s time to confront the past and the secret she s kept buried all this timeIn one night, one night, I lost all of themI adore Marisa de los Santos and her writing, though this wasn t my favorite of her books Still, she s just so good at capturing the little moments in life nailing down the feelings and emotions of her characters Ginny, Avery, and others spring to life in this one The story swings between past and present, with older excerpts often told from Ginny s diary entries It takes a while to learn Ginny s big secret, which is a bit of a pet peeve of mine I m not always a fan of dragging out a secret This is a poignant and sad read, delving into marriage, love, and parenthood My favorite character was fifteen year old Avery, who is hit hard by the incident involving her father, Harris In many ways, I was farinvested in Avery s growth than Ginny s I liked Ginny, but I couldn t quite find myself fully wanting to root for her Although the juxtaposition between young Zinny and present day Ginny was quite well done Did you stop being your old selves Did they fall away Were you always only the self you were in the presentThe book explores how one secret can so change a person and the ripple effect it has on many lives Ms de los Santos examines her characters very closely via her writing, and I will always love picking up her books and getting an intimate look at her cast of players In the end, this is a touching and well written novel, even if I couldn t always find myself fully engaged in Ginny s world 3.75 stars, rounded to 4 here I received a copy of this novel from William Morrow in return for an unbiased review You can support indie bookstores and buy a copy of this novel here Blog Twitter Facebook Instagram PaperBackSwap Smashbomb

    This has been my fave by this author to date It s an interesting story with lots of twists and perfectly paced I enjoyed the characters and laughed out loud a couple of times There was also a reference to Charlottesville, VA, which made me bump it up a quarter of a point 9.5 10.

    I LOVE Marisa de los Santos, although I ve only recently discovered her So when I heard she was coming out with a new book I was so excited Maybe it s because I hyped it up so much before reading it, but unfortunately I was disappointed by this book I thought this storyline was just ok It s probably a 3 star storyline, but in the hands of Marisa de los Santos I ll be generous and say it s a 4 star book It definitely pales in comparison to the other books in the series But honestly, it 100% I LOVE Marisa de los Santos, although I ve only recently discovered her So when I heard she was coming out with a new book I was so excited Maybe it s because I hyped it up so much before reading it, but unfortunately I was disappointed by this book I thought this storyline was just ok It s probably a 3 star storyline, but in the hands of Marisa de los Santos I ll be generous and say it s a 4 star book It definitely pales in comparison to the other books in the series But honestly, it 100% should not be included as a part of this series, because it has absolutely nothing to do with the other books at all While the other three books did take place years apart and could be read as standalones, they at least had very strong connections, the same characters, and overlapping storylines So I thought that Cornelia and Teo and Clare and Dev and all my favorites might at least make an appearance, or take place in the same town, or some reference to their lives Some kind of crossover But no, nothing When I first read the description I thought it might even be that this was the story of the Ginny who was Elizabeth s babysitter in Belong to Me, which would still have been a very weak connection but a connection nonetheless, but the ages and last names don t line up So I m very very confused why this is included as part of a series it has nothing whatsoever to do with.Speaking of the description, DON T READ IT, at least not in the middle of reading this book like I did There s a spoiler I just don t understand how a minor twist that s not revealed until almost 75% in the book is revealed in the description I hadn t realized when I first read it months ago when I added the book to my TBR, and I didn t reread it right before starting this book, but before I got to the point the spoiler is revealed, I reread the description, as I sometimes do, and the spoiler was spoiled Not only that, but a lot of plot points that should only be discovered while reading are revealed right there in the description Very little is left to the reader to discover by reading the book, they d just need to read the description I d highly recommend the publishers change this somehow and make it less revealing.I liked these characters, but again they are fairly generic when compared to Cornelia and Clare and Teo and Dev and even Piper and Edith from previous books And I know I wouldn t be comparing them so much if this hadn t been wrongly included as part of the series, but even trying to separate myself from that and think of it as it s own book, it s not Marisa de los Santos best book I was engaged in the plot and wanted to know what would happen and was surprised by several things, and I did root for the characters and enjoy reading about them I really liked the friendship between Zinny and Gray and Kirsten and CJ back in the 90s and all the things that happened to them, and I was also so engaged in the train wreck that was Harris and everything that he did I liked both the past and present storylines and the way that they connected So there was lots that I enjoyed for sure But something was still missing The romance was extremely anticlimactic and sudden, especially coming from such well crafted slow build romances in previous books One day they were casual friends, the next day they were one slender centimeter away from true love , and that is not an exaggeration.All that being said, I do LOVE Marisa de los Santos writing style It s probably my favorite writing style ever There were moments where I was reading with this goofy grin on my face because the writing is so beautiful and it s just so FUN to read And I did enjoy reading this book, very very much It just didn t live up to my expectations
