A nice book that is written in the typically Zoe Sugg way. For me a wonderful closing of this trilogy. If you are in for an easy to read a novel with some beautiful scenes and nice created figures who aren´t that profound, then this is definitely your book. In my case, it meant, that I could relax and enjoy this novel without any problems. You don´t have to think while reading, and that is sometimes just perfect.

As Penny starts the school year she´s ready to face the world – alone. Noah has gone off the radar after ending his world tour early, and no one, including Penny, knows where he is. So, when she accepts Megan´s invitation to visit her performing arts school, it seems like an opportunity to make some new friends. Helping everyone else seems to be the right remedy – Elliot needs her friendship more than ever, and she meets Posey, who she can really help with her stage fright. But is charming Scottish boy Callum the right kind of distraction? And can Penny truly move on when Noah´s shadow seems to haunt her around every corner? 
Penny tries to forget Noah. The trips to London and the wedding in Scotland seem just right. Unfortunately, the new peace does not last long and when she meets someone new, she must decide what she really wants. And if that wouldn´t be enough, Elliott´s parents also cause a lot of swirling. So, what to do if you can´t run away?

The tone is light, with lots of humor and a wonderful main figure. It is intriguing, plans thwarted, injustice repaired, and made new friendships. All in simple language and with a lot of warmth and feeling. Not only does the author paint a very beautiful picture of friendship and heartache but she also sensitively portraits the love of a caring family. You can literally feel it while reading the pages and it wraps you like a cozy blanket. And no matter if it gets harder, in terms of events or dialogues, the author always remains gentle in the sound – even if it is direct. Jealousy, envy, false ambitions, heartbreak, and separations. The range of feelings is big and varied. Penny tries to find her way of life. Photography is her passion and should one day become her profession – and she´s a great way to forget Noah, her ex-boyfriend.

Elliot is an absolute darling. He joins Penny, even if he is going through hell at home. With sarcastic humor and the love of his boyfriend Alex, he tries to compensate for that. My deepest respect for this guy.

The perfect end of this trilogy. A wonderful relaxing novel, with the right portion of intrigues. Absolutely recommended.

Happy reading
