Book Review - If There's No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Lena is looking forward to her senior year. She's doing well at school, she has great friends and she has a nice job. She's also in love with Sebastian, her best friend. She thinks after many years she might even dare to tell him how she feels. However, her positive flow comes to an end when something terrible happens. One moment changes the course of Lena's life forever. Could she have prevented it from happening and can she handle the guilt she now has to live with?

Lena's whole life has unravelled. She seemed to have a glorious future ahead of her and now the last thing she wants to think about is what she's going to do tomorrow, let alone next year. There's something she hasn't told anyone and this secret is tearing her apart. Will Lena be able to move on and find a way to deal with the consequences of what happened to her on one awful night? Will she be able to tell anyone the truth, so she can share her burden or will she keep struggling with it on her own?

If There's No Tomorrow is an impressive story about love, loss and consequences. Lena is a kindhearted girl. She loves books, she enjoys spending time with her friends, she likes good food and she has a huge crush on the boy next door. She's like a lot of other teenagers, but that changes in one fatal moment. My heart ached for everything she had to go through. Lena has a lot to deal with and she doesn't know what to do with the abundance of overwhelming emotions, they make her feel so bad that she feels she's stuck and therefore she's unable to talk to people. She used to be a cheerful girl, but now she has to discover who she is again and find a new equilibrium. That complex process was moving to witness and it made me tear up quite a few times.

Jennifer L. Armentrout has written an amazing thought-provoking story about a difficult, but very real topic. I loved her honest approach of the situation. She doesn't spare her main characters, she doesn't sugarcoat the situation and she gives her readers the opportunity to make up their own minds about the subject matter. I love the way she does this and the combination with a strong story makes If There's No Tomorrow a gorgeous gripping read. I loved this terrific book.

Advice

If you love strong emotional YA stories If There's No Tomorrow would be an excellent choice.
