This kit was great! I loved the interview with McQuiston - the questions asked were solid and didn't give too much away about the book (if people were reading the interview before their meeting). It was especially practical to have McQuiston's recommended further readings with explanations for each. One thing that might be neat to add in future kits for books like these are a facts/timeline page? One Last Stop heavily references historical events and it would be useful to have those lined out in the kit with quick historical facts as well.

One Last Stop follows August as he migrated to New York City for a fresh start. After that, she meets Jane. Jane is an enigma. In a literal sense. Jane is trapped on the subway with no way out, and August must help her find her way back to the 1970s. The more time they spend together, though, the closer they get, and August's minor train crush deepens.

This book is funny and heartwarming, the writing adding humor and relatability to each moment. Like Casey McQuiston’s first book, there’s plenty of quotable moments, and I feel that their writing has definitely developed even more since Red, White and Royal Blue.

This book will keep you engrossed. It did took me about 50-80 pages to truly immerse myself, but once there, I couldn't put it down. One Last Stop is completely engrossing, from the mystery to the romance.

August is a fantastic character with a fantastic adventure, and Jane is the ideal love partner for her. Their connection is incredible, and they bring out the best in each other. They are both truly imperfect, yet in horribly familiar ways. And what about their relationship? Adorable. But they aren't the only two people in this novel, and I have to admit that I would read a book about every single one of them. They were all so well-crafted, sophisticated, and one-of-a-kind. And the fact that the core buddy circle is so diverse made me very thrilled!

This book club kit was overall lots of fun!! I really enjoyed reading the authors interview and I think the book club questions would be good for a book club setting. I wasn't really a fan of what books were suggested for read next specifically in the fiction category--I just feel like there are many better queer books out there in the romance genre. However, lots of fun besides that!!

I loved this Book Club Kit! It includes some fun activities, such as an author interview, recipe, and printable bookmarks. It definitely enhances the story in my opinion and I recommend it to people or book club's reading One Last Stop.

I loved the book kit because expands my experience reading One Last Stop, the three things I liked most about the book club kit was: the playlist (discovering new songs and artists is a must), the recipe, and the book recommendations, because frequently I want books with a specific vibe or that would make me have the same joy I had reading another book.

I've read One Last Stop so was able to apply what I knew from the book to the book club kit. I found the author interview interesting and relevant. A book club could tweak some of the author questions to turn them into questions for their book group. I liked the suggested questions for the book club but feel more than 3 questions might be useful.

I really liked that a recipe for the sandwich from the diner in the book is included in this kit along with a playlist. You could have a fun book club meeting that includes the food and music from the book.
