A Million Junes Review

Synopsis: For as long as Jack “June” O’Donnell has been alive, her parents have had only one rule: stay away from the Angert family. But when June collides—quite literally—with Saul Angert, sparks fly, and everything June has known is thrown into chaos.

And why has June—an O’Donnell to her core—never questioned her late father’s deep hatred of the Angert family?
