Product description

Product Description

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.

Format: Kindle Edition
‘This Adventure Ends’ was the 2016 contemporary young adult novel by Emma Mills.

This was a really interesting book … one of those books that while you’re reading you really want to know what happens next, but at the end you can’t really recall what the actual plot was, only that you enjoyed it while it lasted.

Ostensibly it’s about a young girl called Sloane whose father is a Nicholas Sparks-esque author of tragi-romance and currently going through a writing slump. To help spark her father’s creativity again, Sloane, her mother, and little sister all move with him from New York to Florida in the hopes it will get the creative juices flowing. The move is really neither here nor there for Sloane, who has never formed truly meaningful attachments to anyone outside her immediate family … but then she finds herself the reluctant attendant of a house party with her new classmates, and sticking up for one called Gabe when a bully boy jock gets in his face.

From there, Sloane becomes the new pet friendship project of Gabe’s twin Vera (a social media sensation) and their friends Aubrey, Remy and Frank. When Sloane discovers that the twins’ artist mother recently passed away and that their new (pregnant) stepmother accidentally sold Gabe’s favourite painting of hers to a local art gallery, Sloane sets off on a mission to retrieve it.

This is not the book to read if contemporary fiction bores you to tears. But if you love the in’s and out’s of daily life and putting your emotions and typical teen dramas under the microscope, you’ll love this.

And while I did indeed enjoy the unfolding, I can’t help but feel this book lacked some necessary oomph.

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty and Thoughtful Take on Relationships 14 October 2016

This adventure ends is about Sloane, daughter of a famous romance novelist, and high school senior who has recently moved from New York to a Florida beach town with her family. Sloane considers "classical voice" her main hobby and doesn't have many friends besides her dad and younger sister. That is, until she meets the Fuller twins.
The story follows Sloane's new friendships, her relationship with her father, and her quest to find a lost painting. All of these subplots are equally important on and get their own equal share of time and attention, and to me at least nothing was left too open-ended.
Sloane's complicated and often conflicting feelings about her friends and even her father, and the way she views relationships in general, feels raw and reminiscent of thoughts my seventeen-year-old self undoubtedly had.
The humor is spot on, if cleverer than anything I've ever heard from the average teenager, and the book handles heavy issues without me having to cycle through a box of tissues. Because her father is a writer, Sloane is sort of given the opportunity to voice some thoughts and opinions on different writing tropes, and how they differ from how things are handled IRL, which is something I really enjoyed about this book.
Overall, this is a nice quick contemporary, I loved the characters--I think even more than the characters from First and Then--and the way friendships and relationships in general were portrayed and explored here. Definitely recommend!
5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful story 20 March 2017

Some reviews mentioned that the story was boring, but they were so wrong. It wasn't filled with unnecessary drama or pages of twists and turns, rather it was real, and that's the most we can ask of anything or anyone, to be real. It's a story of beautiful characters and their growing relationships. The story will make you laugh and cry. It's heartfelt and inspiring. You'll never want this adventure to end.
4.0 out of 5 stars kinda slow paced, but highly recommended. AND THE DESIGN IS SOOOOOOO AMAZING 31 May 2017

I love how the love in this book is so pure and diverse without any closet-ing kind of social condition and how words are so purely described for thousands teenagers' feelings and love. Even tho the story is kinda slow paced, this book is highly recommended. (AND CAN WE JUST TAKE A MOMENT TO APPRECIATE THE DESIGN OF THE BOOK)

I looked at this book because I thought the cover was pretty. I bought the book because all the reviews were so positive. I read this book in one day because the story is so well written and the characters are so well developed that it sucks you into their world. I have found a new favorite author. I cannot recommend this book enough.
