One Night That Changes Everything by Lauren Barnholdt (4 stars!)

One Night That Changes Everything
by Lauren Barnholdt

Rating: 4/5 starts.

 Eliza is in a full-blown panic. Her notebook has been stolen—the one that lists everything she wants but is afraid to go after. And the absolute worst person in the world has it: her ex-boyfriend, Cooper.

Like it’s not enough Cooper was lying to Eliza for their entire relationship, now he and his friends are blackmailing her. They’re giving her just one night to complete the most humiliating tasks on her list or they’ll post her secrets online—including the ones that aren’t just about her.

Eliza’s sure of only one thing: she isn’t going down without a fight. Cooper may have what’s left of her dignity, but she’s not the only one with something to hide …

My Thoughts:

This is such a lovely, hilarious book.
I loved it so, so much!
Eliza reminded me of myself sometimes. I loved her! She could totally be my best friend.
Her best friends made me miss mine, the lessons she learned in just a night were very real to believe and the romance was imperfectly perfect!
I loved how themes of sisterhood (Big sister and little love each other! No fighting or hate!) and friendship were so beautifully incorporated into the book, so light, but so nice and different from all the family problems and usual drama of most of todays YA books.

The best part? I was crying before reading this book because of some shit, but once I started reading, I caught myself smiling and actually laughing out loud several times!

Books that draw out real emotion from me are rare.

One Night That Changes Everything was lighthearted, so much fun and a very lovely read. One of the awesome books which leave you content, and with a smile on your face!

Highly recommended.

  4. I guess we all have different opinions and I totally pretty much felt the opposite of you... I'll have to give the author another chance with a different book but this one just wasn't for me.

    1. I guess so. I loved all her other books too! Well, whichever ones I've read so far.

  5. It was a wonderful book of love, blackmail, friendship, and changes, i really love this book! I recomend this book to anyone who wants something that's not 'heavy' on the mind, light hearted and really is a feel good story.
