Two high school sweethearts spending their last night together before going off to university. Clare has been stressing herself out with the reality of how difficult it would be to maintain a relationship with Aidan at a distance, and knew that it would be inevitable that they should break up. Friends and family knew this moment would come, because Clare couldn’t stop trying to figure out what she should do, but Aidan wanted nothing to happen and believed that things would work if they both wanted it to. Recollecting memories, Clare and Aidan drive through their sleepy town and visiting those special locations where they created their “firsts”.

Once again Jennifer E. Smith has done it again. Pulled at my solid heartstrings and made my chest rattle. Although the book felt long – probably because I kept distracting myself – I finally finished it, and just like when I read The Geography of You and Me I was immediately drawn to the way she writes. I liked the way we got a background story of the two characters, Clare and Aidan, even though I knew the outcome of how this story would end, I had no clue what would truly happen leading up to *Sniffle Sniffle*. Jennifer has a way of doing predictability that isn’t so predictable. I like it, it makes you say “Aww” by the end because you didn’t expect it, but knew something great was going to happen.
