"An Appalachian summer walks the line between toxic and intoxicating in this debut novel about first loves, broken hearts, and moonshine.
Luisa "Lulu" Mendez has just finished her final year of high school in a small Virginia town, determined to move on and leave her job at the local junkyard behind. So when her father loses her college tuition money, Lulu needs a new ticket out.Desperate for funds, she cooks up the (illegal) plan to make and sell moonshine with her friends. Quickly realizing they're out of their depth, they turn to Mason, a local boy who's always seemed like a dead end. As Mason guides Lulu through the secret world of moonshine, it looks like her plan might actually work. But can she leave town before she loses everything? My Best Everything is Lulu's letter to Mason--but is it a love letter, an apology, or a good-bye? "

Here was my initial review on goodreads:
My overall feelings after reading this book are...
"LIFE ISN'T A DISNEY FILM"
This book just seriously made me realise that life isn't a dream, not everything is a happy ending. That is what makes this book so close to real life, there is reality and it's not a fairytale.
