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.

Emma Mills is the author of First & Then. She lives in Indianapolis, where she is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in cell biology.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful book I bought this book because I thought the cover was pretty but I do not regret it! I did not expect to like this book as much as I did. I loved the characters and the friendship between them. This is a beautiful story about friendship and love. It made me happy, it made me laugh and it made me cry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Wish It Didn't End Last year I read and loved Emma Mill's debut, First & Then. It's no wonder This Adventure Ends would become yet another favourite of mine. Emma Mills's writing is so catchy and fun, I love it. Every character is a star in This Adventure Ends. Each shone in their own way and it was impossible not to care for them. They're a hearty bunch~ Having them lit up Sloane's (and my) life. Sloane's a bit of a confusing character. She read like an unconfident teenager (doubting Vera's interest in her) yet she was able to effortlessly stand up for/to Gabe. I'm not quite sure what to make of her but she's definitely unique. Her sense of humour is quirky and adorable. I had so many laugh-out-loud moments with her. Priceless dialogues I tell you! The rapport between Sloane and her father is fabulous. I love how easy it was for her to talk to him. He's so goofy. It warmed my heart to see them have a good time chatting about fanfic, AU and just general life stuff. Even when conflict arose between them I wasn't worried. It was touching to see how much Sloane wanted to find the painting for Vera and Gabe. The painting was important to her too. She might not have realized why but I love what her search for the painting symbolized. So sweet when she realized it. Sloane and Gabe had a very subtle and slow-burn type of relationship. For the majority of the book, the focus was on their friendship. My girly heart beat hectically when romantic things finally happened. I wish there were more swoons! I needed more "Hot Pockets"! The small mystery over Remy and Aubrey's break up was such a realistic approach to relationships. That's the simple, honest truth. I enjoyed This Adventure Ends so much I zipped through the book. Now all I want to do is go back and reread it. I miss all the characters and you definitely will too once you get to know them.

Editorial Reviews

"Immensely enjoyable." -Booklist"Mills (First & Then) seamlessly creates art imitating life imitating art while bringing freshness to the familiar romantic conventions she invokes. With taut, realistic dialogue, she expertly crafts blossoming friendships and nascent romances." -Publishers WeeklyPraise for First & Then:"With sporadic references to Jane Austen's famous characters and wickedly inventive language, Mills closely observes the social milieu of an American high school.... A fresh, smart, inventive, and altogether impressive debut." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review
