Sloane isn’t expecting to fall in with a group of friends when she moves from New York to Florida—especially not a group of friends so intense, so in love, so all-consuming. Yet that’s exactly what happens. Sloane becomes closest to Vera, a social-media star who lights up any room, and Gabe, Vera’s twin brother and the most serious person Sloane’s ever met. When a beloved painting by the twins’ late mother goes missing, Sloane takes on the responsibility of tracking it down, a journey that takes her across state lines—and ever deeper into the twins’ lives. Filled with intense and important friendships, a wonderful warts-and-all family, shiveringly good romantic developments, and sharp, witty dialogue, this story is about finding the people you never knew you needed. **
### From School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up—Sloane is new in town, and she is quickly immersed in a circle of friends, the likes of whom she has never known before. They are tight-knit but welcoming despite their secrets and inside jokes. Her new best friend, Vera, and her twin brother, Gabe, are bereft when they discover that a cherished painting of their deceased mother has mistakenly been sold. Sloane secretly vows to track down the painting, which sets off a series of adventures. Through the course of the novel, Sloane is challenged to reevaluate her solitary tendencies, reconsider her college and career plans, and open herself to the possibility of love. This contemporary romance is set in a vacation belt in Florida. Sloane is a likable protagonist surrounded by loving and supportive family members who are not without their own personal issues. Her father, a famous novelist, has suffered a career blow, and it has strained her parents’ marriage. Her new friends are realistic, though her love interest is the typical strong, silent, and stoic type. Fans of the author’s debut, First & Then, or her YouTube vlogging persona, Elmilfy, will gravitate toward this title with relatable characters and a satisfying plot. VERDICT Avid and reluctant readers will enjoy this quick offering with short chapters.—Amanda Foust, Consultant, Littleton, CO
### Review
“Immensely enjoyable.” ? *Booklist* “Mills *(First & Then)* seamlessly creates art imitating life imitating art while bringing freshness to the familiar romantic conventions she invokes. With taut, realistic dialogue, she expertly crafts blossoming friendships and nascent romances.” ? *Publishers Weekly* Praise for *First & Then*: “With sporadic references to Jane Austen’s famous characters and wickedly inventive language, Mills closely observes the social milieu of an American high school…. A fresh, smart, inventive, and altogether impressive debut.” ? *Kirkus Reviews* , **starred review**
