This book club kit contained insightful questions that really spark an interesting discussion, I actually asked some of these to my friends! Particularly the exploration of side characters which is often overlooked.

The interview with the author was very lovely. I love seeing how authors find their inspiration when writing books, specially for ideals so original as a girl stuck on a SUBWAY.

But my absolute favorite part? THE SU SPECIAL RECIPE. I constantly make this recipe for breakfast since reading the book and let me just tell you: It is a masterpiece indeed. I love it.

Great kit for the book! I love the extras. It helps to have these sorts of things to look at when you’re reading the book to help focus your attention on the things the book group is probably going to be focusing more on, rather than all of the tangents in the story that my neurodivergent mind likes to wander along.

I loved this book club kit! The art work is beautiful and the questions to ask during your club meeting are geared for in depth conversations with your club. I love the suggested reads for after you're completed with this book as well.

I was so excited to see a Book Club Kit for one of my favorite books. This kit is the perfect set up for a party with a recipe, playlist, an author interview, discussion questions, and even printable bookmarks for favors. The only thing missing might be ideas for decor. All around though, this is the perfect kit to get the discussion started on this book.

I really enjoyed the recipe. It was a nice added touch! I will admit I didn’t fully read the description so it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting so it wouldn’t be completely fair to rate it low as I haven’t read the book but I would definitely like more recipes from books!

As someone who is starting a LGBTQIA+ book club this month and trying to prepare, this was such a great kit to help! It’s easily understandable and I can’t wait to use it for this months book on One Last Stop!

This is amazing! This kit is perfect for my book club. The discussion questions and author interviews are the best conversation starters for book club. They allow for open conversations between the group. I love that this kit included playlists and a recipe for the Su Special for the perfect backdrop to One last Stop by Casey McQuiston. One of the best resources!

As somebody who runs a sapphic specific book club, I love that Netgalley's We Are Bookish strives to create Book Club Kits to allow book clubs to dive into books more deeply and to help develop the ability to consume bookish content in a more complex way and to question the author's reasoning for making their decisions.

This book club kit was too cute! The visuals were great, the interview of the author was insightful, and the recipe for the Su Special at the end? Looks perfect. I think this would be a great companion to any book club read of One Last Stop and would be very helpful in getting into some good conversation about the book.

Omgeee this was sooooooo adorable I have never read a book club kit before. This is such a great guide for book club discussions especially if you are just starting and have no idea what to do or where to start.

I really love this book club kit! It has everything. From discussion questions, to recommendations for what to read next, and even book marks! This has the makings for the perfect kit to coincide with a book club that's big or small. There's even a recipe for the Su Special from the book so that you can make something delicious for the book club. I'd definitely recommend this to someone who's a planner like me.

Casey McQuiston's One Last Stop is a fascinating tale that blends delicate romance, quirky humor, and a spice of the surreal. It is a delightful read. When August Landry, a cynical college dropout who is fixated on her mother's unresolved missing person case, meets Jane Su, an alluring punk rocker with a secret that involves being stuck on the subway and time-traveling between 1977 and 2023, her entire world is turned upside down.
Sharp and humorous, McQuiston's writing captures the essence of both Jane's exuberant energy and August's jaded appeal.

As their strange acquaintance turns into a passionate love tale, sparks fly between historical riddles and late-night subway misadventures. With its deft integration of time travel, the story takes on a new level of intrigue and raises intriguing questions about fate, free will, and the enduring power of love.

It's a celebration of acceptance and self-discovery rather than merely a romance. August gains the ability to accept her own frailties, while Jane finds courage in the LGBTQ+ community and her chosen family. The plot is made more complex and nuanced by the novel's wide range of characters and its examination of issues like generational divides and mental health.

"One Last Stop" leaves you with a warm, fuzzy feeling and a renewed appreciation for the enchantment that can be found in the most unexpected places, even on a packed subway train, even though some readers may find the ending to be a little rushed.

An endearing and fascinating adventure that will linger with you long after you turn the last page, making it the ideal read for lovers of quirky romantic comedies with a hint of the unusual.

I have never read a Book Club Kit before. This is a fantastic approach to start a conversation among readers and get their input on what to read next. There were recipes, playlists, author interviews and recommendations of similar books in this media package.
Thank you netgalley!

I loved this book and the book club kit is so awesome to pair with it! I will definitely be giving this to my YA book club person so they can do this book.

I really enjoyed this book club kit! I loved how interactive it was and I think it leaves a lot of room for discussion, more than a lot of discussion questions allow.
My favorite parts were the introduction letter by Casey McQuiston, the playlist to listen to based on the books, and the book recommendations similar to One Last Stop.
