From Goodreads: What if the first day of your relationship was the only day you had?
Seventeen-year-old Sara is a seeker. She’s always on the lookout for the perfect moment to capture with her ever-present, point-and-shoot camera, especially on her first trip to New York City.
Sam is a finder. He has a knack for finding what other people can’t—a first-edition book or the last two tickets to a sold-out Broadway show. In New York, there is always something interesting to find.
When Sam and Sara’s paths cross, neither one of them is prepared for what they will find out about each other—and about themselves when they form an unlikely partnership in search of a seemingly elusive work of art. They have one day to find the impossible. Fate brought their talents together, but what happens when time runs out? Will love be able to overcome fate? This new novel from award-winning author Lisa Mangum explores what happens after hello.
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed reading this book! After Hello offered some fresh air to the YA community that you will not want to miss out on.
Sara and Sam are wonderfully strong characters that you can't help but fall in love with. Their relationship is just something you want to be a part of. Between their witty bantering, exploring New York, and learning to let go of their pasts- you will find yourself falling deeper and deeper into their world until your turning the last page at 3:00 am.
What I really found unique about this novel was that it was "clean", and I usually find those type of novels to be less realistic. However, with After Hello, I didn't even notice it until I got ready to start writing my review. It was just a genuinely good hearted amazing story that I am so happy I picked up to read. Sam and Sara's story will definitely be staying with me for a long time.
