Book Review: Remind Me How This Ends by Gabrielle Tozer

In this episode, Lauren and Diem talk about all the ways they love Gabrielle Tozer’s latest YA novel. In ‘Remind Me How This Ends’, there’s a road trip, a boy-meet-girl (again!) romance and grief so palpable it’ll make you want to fall on the ground and weep.
