Thank you  NetGalley and St Martin Griffin for the advanced readers copy in exchange for my honest review.  One Last Stop is out June 1, 2021.

"It's all about loving someone so much you can't stand the idea of losing them, even if it hurts, that all the hard stuff is worth it if you can get though together."

A heartwarming read about self discovery with a paranormal twist.  August moves to New York to finish school.  She's 24 and unsure of what she wants in life.  She has no friends or family, except for her mom who is obsessed with finding her brother who went missing in the late 70's.  She finds some new roommates and a job at a 24 hour restaurant waiting tables. Then meets Jane on the subway. Jane is charming and mysterious.  There's one problem.  Jane is displaced, she's actually from the past and stuck on the subway. August wants to help Jane and in the process, she ends up finding herself.

This book was a breath of fresh air.  It made me feel uplifted and happy. I loved every single character so much.  I just wanted to climb into the book and hang out with them. There is so much queer diversity in this book which is so refreshing. The plot was creative, delightful and unique.  I want to be upfront and say that this book is very different than Casey McQuiston's other novel; Red, White and Royal Blue but it was also so good.  I love how both the main characters, Jane and August, both found themselves in different ways. There is just the perfect amount of steamy scenes (although that was weird because they were mostly in public places). I realize parts were a little far-fetched and there were a lot of side stories but I feel like everything connected well enough.  This was such an enjoyable read.
