SPOILERS for Last Christmas in Paris by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb

Evie's brother, Will, was killed early on in the war.  Evie and her family were devastated by his loss, but it only pushed Evie and Tom closer together.  Oh, it was revealed late in the book (but hinted at several times throughout) that Will got a French nurse pregnant and left behind a daughter when he was killed.  When Tom was sent to a hospital in Scotland to recover mentally from the horrors of war, it was Evie who went to be by his side.  However, they seriously did not communicate their feelings to each other in a clear way.

After Evie had joined the auxiliary I had the feeling that she would be killed off before she and Tom could confess their feelings and she very nearly died when she caught the Spanish Flu. It was nearly the end of the book before you realize that Evie and Tom did get together and Evie died in November of 1968 and Tom went to Paris one last time before he was going to go be with her.

SPOILERS for Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

Aza found out that Daisy's Star Wars fan-fiction featured a character based on Aza.  The character was depicted as "useless" and basically was no fun and exhausting and a horrible friend.  When Aza confronts her about the fan-fiction they get in a fight while Aza is driving and there is a horrible car accident.  In the hospital, Aza gets caught drinking hand sanitizer to help rid her body of the microbes that she is sure is wreaking havoc on her body.  It is the way her mother discovers just how close Aza is to losing it all.

After a few weeks, Aza goes back to school and makes up with Daisy. A little too quickly for my liking.  After the fight, I really did not like Daisy.   The author could have used this point to illustrate that it is okay to end a friendship with someone.  However, forgiveness is an honorable quality.

They figure out that the billionaire drowned in the river and his body has been in a sewer all this time.  Aza told Davis their suspicions.  He called in the anonymous tip that found his body.
