Isla and the Happily Ever After, Review

28 Jun

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

Plot: In the conclusion to this loose trilogy (different characters, but characters from the previous books make cameos), Isla is studying abroad in France and finally is making some headway on friendship with her longtime crush Josh. It even almost seems like he likes her back, but for some reason he seems aloof with her best friend Kurt.

After a few misunderstandings, Josh and Isla are finally dating. A few bad decisions lead to complications in their relationship. Can it survive family pressure, as well as distance and Isla’s own insecurities?

Would you recommend this book? Yes, however there are a few mature themes. The one thing I did not like is how Isla sabotaged her own happiness for reasons that she tried to justify but did not really make much sense to me. I know that there are always bumps in the road, but it just made Isla seem immature while stating that she wanted to be mature about everything with her relationship.
