This review is really late because I got myself locked out of my account but I’m finally back in and can write the review.

I went into this book not knowing what to expect. At first, I thought it would be a continuation of last night at the telegraph club, and a romance; it wasn’t really either. It’s more about growing up and finding who you are.

The plot is pretty simple and sweet Aria, the main character is spending the summer with her grandmother after an incident that keeps her from having the summer she had originally planned. Instead of a disappointment though she meets her grandmother's gardener, Steph who basically ends up that is making her question her sexuality.
Aside from that you also get to know a little bit about Aria’s relationships with her parents, friends, her grandmother who she’s staying with, and even her late grandfather (this was one of my favorite parts of the book, the way it was done was kind of unexpected but really creative!!)

The beginning of the book feels very gentle, I felt easily wrapped up and lost in the story. Especially with the setting, the writing was beautifully done. While the middle and end are a little bit more intense reading this book still felt very flowly like floating down a slow river.

The only reason why I’m giving it four stars instead of five is that a good amount of the book involves cheating and that’s not really my thing but other than that it was amazingly done.

Overall it was a beautifully written story. I recommend it for fans of last night at the telegraph club and for anyone that’s looking for a nice summerish coming-of-age/self-discovery book.
