The Last Time We Say Goodbye || Book Review

The Last Time We Say Goodbye

I had to have a full solid day to sink into this book and to completely get my mind straight. THE FEELS !  It was heartbreaking, touching, and remarkably beautifully written. I could not get over it, even after 24 hours, but I know I had to write what is bottling inside of me before I burst. So excuse if it gets a little emotional.

This book is about a girl name Alexis whose brother killed himself with a gun. That wasn't the worst part of it. The worst part was that she didn't reply his last message that could eventually saved his life. Alexis's brother, Ty, is suicidal and he tried ending his life before. Lexis made a promise to be there for him whenever he felt unsteady or lonely. He, too, promised to text her if he ever felt depressed. He kept his promise but she didn't.

Though out this book, Lexis tried to deal with losing a little brother. She tried to cope with her emotions and to eventually move on but how was she suppose to feel better or anything for that matter when everything felt empty and as if she is stuck in a dark hole. She was lost and wondering. Ty was a huge piece of her, she loved him and cared for him. Knowing that she will not be able to wake up the next morning to see him eating breakfast at the counter, or to wish him happy birthday every year breaks her heart to pieces after pieces. She broke up with her boyfriend after Ty died and everything that used to be in her life seems to all fade away as well.

This book contains elements of romance, love, family, and most importantly the awareness of mental health. It's much similar to 'All the Bright Places'. If 'All the Bright Places' gave you the feels then, this book will give them all back to you once more. It is brutally unforgettable and  unimaginably touching. I truly recommend this book as it was a really satisfying read with a meaningful message buried beneath the words of Cynthia Hand.
