The 100 Must-Read Books of 2021

August is 23 years old and just moved to New York City with barely any luggage and a pretty nonchalant attitude about it all. She’s cynical and keeps to herself, something she is very happy to do, until one day on the Q train she meets an impossibly cool girl in a leather jacket. August crushes on her hard and their chemistry is immediate. What’s the catch? It turns out this mystery woman, whose name is Jane, has been stuck on the subway since the 1970s. What ensues is a wildly wonderful journey in which August tries to literally turn back time. Like Casey McQuiston’s 2019 debut novel, Red, White & Royal Blue, One Last Stop is just plain fun, and infused with plenty of care, especially when it comes to portraying the queer community that envelops August with love. It’s a book that is guaranteed to make you smile—with a steamy love story to boot.
