GoodReads Summary:
‘If she’d waited less than two weeks, she’d be June who died in June. But I guess my sister didn’t consider that.’
Harper Scott’s older sister has always been the perfect one so when June takes her own life a week before her high school graduation, sixteen-year-old Harper is devastated. Everyone’s sorry, but no one can explain why.
When her divorcing parents decide to split her sister’s ashes into his-and-her urns, Harper takes matters into her own hands. She’ll steal the ashes and drive cross-country with her best friend, Laney, to the one place June always dreamed of going, California.
Enter Jake Tolan. He’s a boy with a bad attitude, a classic-rock obsession and nothing in common with Harper’s sister. But Jake had a connection with June, and when he insists on joining them, Harper’s just desperate enough to let him. With his alternately charming and infuriating demeanour and his belief that music can see you through anything, he might be exactly what she needs.
Except June wasn’t the only one hiding something. Jake’s keeping a secret that has the power to turn Harper’s life upside down again.

When I first read the description for this book on NetGalley, I instantly wanted to read it.

Saving June started off a little slow and I wasn't sure I was going to like it. Once it really took off though, I read through it every chance that I got. I really enjoyed the journey the characters took physically and emotionally and the way the music and photography played a large role in it.

This book was very good. I had a little trouble in the beginning but was hanging on every word in no time.

Definitely a book i would read again (and I think it would make a great movie!).

Favorite Character: Jake
Rating: 4 Stars.
