Love the eighties? Love romantic adventures? How often have you looked back on your high school experiences and just thought . . . WOW. Last Exit to Montauk will take you there . . . and more.
When he approaches her at the market, he has no idea the next three weeks of his life would change him forever.
It’s the late 1980s, summertime, on the North Shore of Long Island. The air stirs with possibilities as it often does during this time of year. And so begins the romance between one Hispanic seventeen-year-old male, on the verge of manhood and ready to conquer the world, and one beautiful and intelligent young woman named B.It is much more than romance, though. B will forever become a part of this young man’s soul. He will never forget her.
This is a coming-of-age story, a love story, replete with milestones, tangled emotions, and adventures that are the embodiments of first love. Not just for the young, but for the young at heart.
“They say you never forget your first love, and the romance recounted is one well worth remembering.” ~~Huffington Post
“Last Exit to Montauk is a story of first love, one young readers, as well as lovers of the romance genre, will find quite satisfying. There is definitely an air of the kind of romantic fiction embodied by Nicholas Sparks or John Green with Vega’s Last Exit to Montauk.” ~~ Manhattan Book Review
“Fans of John Green, Jack Hornby and romantic coming-of-age stories, will enjoy this look at the joys and pitfalls of first love.” ~~Underground Book Review
