Never in one place long enough to make friends or put down roots, Colie doesn't expect her trip to the North Carolina coast to change a thing. Always the outcast, she's resigned to a holiday with only her eccentric aunt Mira for company. But when she finds a job waitressing at the Last Chance cafe, she also finds acceptance, new friends, and the beginnings of romance...

Review:

Young American writer Dessen has a wit, humour and love of human eccentricity reminiscent of Anne Tyler ... 'Last Chance' is too rich and varied tobe labelled an 'issues' novel. Dessen reveals herself as the real thing: a sharp, warm and funny writer who shapes her world from the stuff of real life. Highly recommended for - well, everyone. * Times Educational Supplement * 'Dessen is an absolutely wonderful writer - stylish, smart and funny.' Booklist'Dessen has done it again with this charming novel... This wonderful coming-of-age love story will be enthusiastically shared by many high school teens.' Voya'A story heaped with crackling dialogue and sharp humour.' School Library Journal'Readers are shown "ya-ya" type friendships are a balm to protect young women while they're kissing toads they thought were princes. Teens will just want to cheer when Colie realises that she has always had within what people were looking for externally.' School Library Journal Dessen reveals herself as the real thing: a sharp, warm and funny writer who shapes her world from the stuff of real life. Highly recommended for -- well, everyone. * Times Educational Supplement *
