Saving June by Hannah Harrington

Saving June by Hannah Harrington

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 

Five/five stars!!

This book was perfect! I loved every single character and every part of this book. Saving June is about Harper, her best friend Laney and June’s friend Jake going on a road trip to California to finally and properly put June to rest. The way she always wanted.

“If June had waited two weeks she would have been June who died in June, but I guess my sister didn’t consider that.”

At June’s funeral, Harper meets Jake. She has no idea who this strange boy is hanging around the outskirts of her sister’s funeral. Ever since the first meeting with Jake, Harper is determined to find out more about the relationship between June and Jake. So, he offers to join Harper and Laney on their roadtrip.
The road trip really was one of the best parts of this book. It was fun, exciting, adventurous and romantic. Harper found herself opening up to Jake. She was telling him things she never thought she would tell anyone. Her secrets. How she thought June was selfish to leave her, just like that, without a note or anything. How she hated her parents for their divorce. Eventually, she starts to fall for Jake. But it really isn’t as simple as that. It was one hell of a crazy relationship for them. They both had secrets and insecurities, which could tear them apart.

I also really enjoyed the music side of this book. Jake was a real music boy who could sing, play guitar and tell you anything you want to know about ABBA! The music playlists were amazing and all the information about the songs was just as cool. I loved it!

Jake frustrated me to no end in some parts, but he was a real sweetheart at some parts!  He showed Harper amazing things, and introduced her into a whole other world; with him and music. He listened to her without judging, and was there for her. Yes, he was a dickhead and so obnoxious, but he was also so amazing.

Saving June is like my comfort food, except in paperback book form. It is so perfect and I will read everything else by this author. I would recommend this to everyone, probably over the age of 12.
