Publisher's Summary

Romeo and Juliet meets One Hundred Years of Solitude in Emily Henry's brilliant follow-up to The Love That Split the World, about the daughter and son of two long-feuding families who fall in love while trying to uncover the truth about the strange magic and harrowing curse that has plagued their bloodlines for generations.

June O'Donnell - aka Junior, aka Jack, aka Jonathan O'Donnell IV, aka the first female O'Donnell firstborn - has always been haunted by her family's mythic but complicated legacy. As she prepares to begin her final year of high school, June is itching to leave behind her ghosts in Five Fingers, Michigan, and travel the world.

And then, just like it always happens to the O'Donnells, a painful glimmer from her past returns to mess everything up.

Enter Saul Angert, the eldest son of Eli Angert, aka June's late father's mortal enemy, back in town from a prestigious writing program to care for his ailing father. June can't seem to avoid Saul, whose very presence makes her ache with grief over her father, and soon the unthinkable happens: She finds she doesn't exactly hate the gruff, sarcastic, and strangely tender boy whom she was born to loathe.

When June and Saul accidentally stumble into a bit of the forest magic, they are allowed a glimpse into the past at the fateful, horrible moment that started all the trouble between their families. Now June doesn't know if this new discovery means she should hate the Angerts even more or if it's finally time for her - and all of the O'Donnells before her - to let go.

Romeo & Juliet? Tuck Everlasting? Something entirely new?

When you first start to read this book, you quickly assume you are getting a cleverly disguised Romeo &Juliet via June & Saul. Then the magical twists start happening and you feel like you entered the land of Tuck Everlasting.

The lovers are still star-crossed, but soon the memories take over and guide the journey. It's a fresh YA offering, that somehow left me a little dissatisfied, feeling a little bit like I did with Twilight since the hook was so one dimensional disputed the twists. Still, it's a fantastic and well-written story, and so very perfect for your summer reading pleasure.

I both read and listened and it was good both ways, and definitely hard to put down. If this review helped, please make sure and like it, thank you!

A Nice Read

Well .. that was .. good
I don't read magical realism as much as I should but I really do love this genre, this is a nice story about two cursed family and the star crossed lovers who are trying to break this curse ( June and Saul ) I really love the chemistry between those two .. and how they were trying to make their relationship work even though history is against them in many ways, the last part of the story was so random and it kind of defied the point from the first part ( if that make sense ? ) but I like the message .. letting go is what will set you free
nice read .. maybe I will check this author other work

The Narration was very good as expected from Julia Whelan and it did give some liveliness to the book :)

O DANG I love this book

I fell in love with Emily Henry's first book The Love that Split the World and was super bummed there was no audio for it (hint hint, Audible!). When I discovered she had written a new book AND there was an audiobook for it, I was ecstatic and bought it almost immediately. I thought the premise sounded fun and I trusted Henry to do equally as well telling this magical realism twist on a Romeo and Juliet type love story. But I had no idea how completely absorbed into this book I would be from the very beginning. There are a million things I loved about A Million Junes. But just know this book takes you on an incredibly moving story of two wounded families who have a long secret history. There's magic and tall tales, cherries and waterfalls. There's ferris wheels and ghosts. There's fake names and kissing in the dark. There's stepping out of one room and into another world. There's love and loss and death and life and fate and faith and mystery. Everyone should read this book. It is a marvel of storytelling. And Julia Whelan is a voice over goddess who brings every snippet of wonder to life.

Highly recommend. Five Stars. Favorite Book.

A mystical tale regrets and redemption

Truly enjoyed the narration and the storyline! A Million June's was not a typical ghost story, rather a mystical experience.

Great book

This was an amazing book. Julia Whelan did a great job narrating, and really helped bring the story and characters to life. The story unfolded little bits at a time and kept me wanting to listen to more. I think this took me 3 days to listen to, which is really fast for me, but I couldn't quit. Any spare moment I had I was listening. I even took it on my runs with me. I would recommend this book to an audience who loves young adult books.

Beautifully Written and Performed Book... Didn't Care for Ending

Plot developed and developed and developed, and then the Ending not developed enough. Great audio performance and lovely writing. Wish ending justified the rest.

A blend of reality and fantasy.

Any additional comments?

This was an interesting story. Early on, it was very realistic and believable. The plot soon shifts into a magical, other world realm that requires some imagination and whimsy from the reader/listener. The decades old feud between the O'Donnells and the Angerts is established early, but not in detail.

When Saul and Junior meet for the first time, I knew enough about it to get a star-crossed-love kind of feel. Realistic, believable. As the story unfolds, the action becomes more mystical and magical. Whites that whisk the main characters away to experience memories from the past. Coy wolves that steal shoes. The character, Nameless, who is reminiscent of a Reaper. There were times where I had to pause and regroup, just checking to make sure I had the story straight. I could see where the ending was headed, but the author handled the character development, plot, climax, and conclusion skillfully, giving me a satisfying ending, but not without the requisite suspense.

My favorite character was June's best friend, Hannah, who was a witty and devoted, and the epitome of a teenage girl. She was expertly portrayed by the narrator, Julia Whelan, who had great pacing and character distinction throughout. (And a believable (to my American ears) French accent for June's mom.) This was my first listen to one of her narrations, though probably not my last.

Overall, this book is not like other novels I have read. I don't usually dive into magical stories, but this one did not disappoint. In fact, it made a rather long car ride quite bearable. I'm not a YA, but it is perfect for both teen listeners and adults who like YA books. Recommend.
