Until We Meet Again wasn’t a typical time travel book, and I really enjoyed that about it. The main characters met on a beach, and that was the only place they could see each other. Lawrence lived in 1925 and Cassandra in 2015. How will they live happily ever after?! Admittedly I thought I knew what would happen in the end but I was pleasantly surprised! Another thing I didn’t expect was to have this be more of a mystery. I enjoyed the suspense of it all though!
I thought Lawrence was really sweet and romantic. He was also a bit more mature than Cassandra, even though he was only a year older. I’m sure it also has to do with them having to grow up way faster back then. Cassandra got under my skin at times. She was really sulky and bratty at first, but by the end, she’d matured some. I loved that she had a family that cared about her well being and didn’t take any of her crap. Way to go, mom! And her stepdad was really sweet.
So while I was reading this I kept hearing Taylor Swift’s Wildest Dreams in my head. The video implies the song is about being involved with a bad guy and even though Lawrence was from that, there are other aspects from the story that fit it well. So that’s why I’m making it my song for Until We Meet Again!

They exist in two different centuries, but their love defies time
Cassandra craves drama and adventure, so the last thing she wants is to spend her summer marooned with her mother and stepfather in a snooty Massachusetts shore town. But when a dreamy stranger shows up on their private beach claiming it’s his own—and that the year is 1925—she is swept into a mystery a hundred years in the making.
As she searches for answers in the present, Cassandra discovers a truth that puts their growing love—and Lawrence’s life—into jeopardy. Desperate to save him, Cassandra must find a way to change history…or risk losing Lawrence forever.
