The fourth and final book in the beloved Pippa Greene series
It’s senior year, and the college countdown is on. But instead of getting accepted to Tisch’s photography program, Pippa’s been waitlisted. Without a backup plan, and with the pressure from everyone around her to live up to her father’s legacy, Pippa sets out to prove herself worthy of the program by doing the opposite of everything she did to try to get in. But when she runs into her ex, and first love, Dylan McCutter, Pippa has to finally decide if she should follow her head or her heart.
Written with the same humor and heart that made Chantel Guertin’s first three Pippa Greene novels instant favorites, Golden Hour offers a fresh and charming perspective on friendships, family, and first love.
About the author
Chantel Guertin is the author of the Pippa Greene series — The Rule of Thirds, Depth of Field, and Leading Lines — as well as the novels Stuck in Downward Dog and Love Struck. An on-air beauty expert on The Marilyn Denis Show, she loves lip gloss, chocolate-chip cookie dough, and anything in her favorite color: sky blue. She lives in Toronto.
“A humorous, youthful approach and a relatable, charming heroine makes this contemporary series a must-read for teens.” — K.A. Tucker, USA bestselling author of Ten Tiny Breaths
“Guertin thoughtfully and hilariously captures the nuances of female friendship and first love. A picture-perfect end to a fabulous series.” — Sarah Mlynowski, NYT Bestselling author of I See London, I See France
“As always, Guertin has written a complex, likeable character in Pippa Greene. While maintaining focus on the main character, Guertin has also created secondary characters that are all fully realized. . . We have spent the last few years sharing Pippa’s life: the challengers, the losses, the joys. . . I would love to know what life has in store for Pippa. It's hard to say goodbye to a longtime friend.” — CM: Canadian Review of Materials
“It’s a high-quality YA mocktail that goes down with blissful ease, and that’s not back-handed snark; there is a legitimate readership for Guertin’s lighter touch, which includes a nine-word sex scene (‘Soon our bodies intertwine. We couldn’t be closer together’).” — The Globe and Mail
“This series is all about discovering who you truly are, and the main character is so relatable. I especially enjoyed Golden Hour, since Pippa’s transformation is evident. I would definitely recommend this series, and each of the books are short and sweet.” — The Candid Cover blog
Golden HourPippa is finally going to graduate and is hoping to attend the one and only college she has dreamed about. She is so sure of herself that she only applied to the one place.
Follow along on her funny, heartwarming adventure of truly finding herself.
