If There's No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She’s ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications and to maybe let her childhood best friend Sebastian know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be epic—one of opportunities and chances. 

Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything. 

Now Lena isn’t looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian might never forgive her for what happened. 

For what she let happen. 

With the guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when her and her friends’ entire existences have been redefined? How can she move on when tomorrow isn’t even guaranteed?

This is a terrible review to write because it's impossible to discuss this book without spoilers and I don't want to spoil this experience for you.  It's something you have to discover on your own, in your own time, and with lots of freaking kleenex handy.

Lena reminds me of Katy from Armentrout's Lux Series - bookish, nerdy, homebody, which is good.  I liked Katy.  Sebastian is a great YA book boyfriend and if I were younger, I would totally claim him as my book boyfriend.  Alas, I am not younger, so I will leave him to my neices.  

Me, while reading Tomorrow.  I will definitely be giving this book to my neices.  There are so many great messages in Tomorrow - friendship, honesty, love, forgiveness, redemption...  It's a cautionary tale, but so much more. And sooo many kleenex!

Me, after reading Tomorrow...

Ok, I will stop tormenting you.  Tomorrow is a thought provoking story written in the enthralling manner as most Armentrout stories.  You won't be able to put it down, but you will want to.  The foreshadowing will fill you with apprehension and terror.  You will suffer and cry and then feel a glimmer of hope and you will finish the book with so many feels and be a mess.  

I'm not much for heartwrenching books, but every once in a while, when it's done well, this kind of book is exactly what I didn't know I needed.  I'm sorry, but you have to read this one.  You have to.
