The saying, “don’t judge a book by its cover” has never related to a story better. Sam, presents herself like the rest of the popular girls in her class, but that’s not the truth. Inside her brain, Sam is struggling with OCD and haunting thoughts. Sam has her family to depend on, but if the girls she is considered to be “friends” with knew of any of this, they would be the quickest people to judge. Sam is tortured by the way she is living and who she is spending her time with. That is, until a girl named Caroline introduces Sam to a place of safety for outcasts who have been ignored. The people in the place slowly help Sam to feel “normal” for once and she is the happiest she has been for a long time. Until reality hits her and she is struck with a fact that is unbelievable. Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone is one of the most beautiful stories ever. It deals with struggles everyone goes through and also some struggles only some people deal with. I chose to read this book because I thought the concept of the story was different than anything I’ve seen. It was easy to get through because the story line of this book is incredible and leaves you surprised with every page you turn. I would recommend this book to people struggling with friendships and being who they are in the Young Adult genre.
