About the Book



High school sweethearts Clare and Aidan spend the night before they leave for college reminiscing about their relationship and deciding whether they should stay together or break up.



Book Synopsis



On the night before they leave for college, Clare and Aidan only have one thing left to do: figure out whether they should stay together or break up. Over the course of twelve hours, they retrace the steps of their relationship, trying to find something in their past that might help them decide what their future should be. The night leads them to family and friends, familiar landmarks and unexpected places, hard truths and surprising revelations. But as the clock winds down and morning approaches, so does their inevitable goodbye. The question is, will it be goodbye for now or goodbye forever?

Charming, bittersweet, and full of wisdom and heart, this irresistible novel from Jennifer E. Smith, author of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, explores the difficult choices that arise when life and love lead in different directions.



Review Quotes




Praise for Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between: * The teen characters display authentic voices as the break-up defines the final few drama-filled hours before the group splits for university or community college. The conflicts among them ring true as each tries to stay true to him- or herself, although the four realize the end of this journey is here when others are just starting. Smith is a winning choice for teen girls...--VOYA (starred review)

Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between is the love story of Clare and Aidan, high school sweethearts who spend one last day together before college separates them, possibly forever. It's also the love story of good friends, of home, of what used to be and what's to come. This latest stunner from Jennifer E. Smith will linger in your aching heart. (But it's a good ache. The best kind.) It's an ache that comes from characters who are so real they breathe, and a relatable story that generates feels-lots of them- on every page.--Jennifer Niven, New York Times bestselling author of All the Bright Places

Fans of sentimental and intelligent romances will be drawn to this smart approach to relationships.--School Library Connection

Over one epic evening, Jennifer E. Smith expertly captures every painful, perfect nuance of first love. I didn't want the night--or this book--to end. --Sarah Dessen, New York Times bestselling author

What keeps [the story] fresh and on the literary side of the genre are engaging, closely observed characters, Clare and Aidan among them, portrayed with such intimate, intense authenticity that readers too feel invested in their choices.
