Every Last Word
Every Last Word is a prominent and satisfying read. By the end of the book, I was in tears. Well, truth be told, I was in tears throughout the book. I resonated with the story so much, it felt as if I were the character. I don’t have what the main character, Samantha, has, which is Purely-Obsessional OCD, a mental illness that causes dark thoughts that she’s afraid she can’t turn off. But I felt her pain, her joy, and I felt the dark thoughts that raced through her head on a daily basis.
This is a story that I think every teen and adult should read because maybe then our society would have a better grasp of what can be done in the mental health field. The book also touches on depression, anxiety, and suicide. I like the way Stone portrayed and brought awareness to Samantha’s situation. She did that by having our heroine find a secret club that wrote and read poetry. It even inspired me to write some poetry of my very own. In the story, it was very therapeutic for Sam when she wrote and even though it didn’t get rid of her OCD. It help her cope.
The secondary characters made me weep with how amazing and supporter they were with Sam. I think it’s sad to think that some may not have that kind of support and because of that, they suffer in silence. If you’re feeling alone, remember that you aren’t. Pick up this book because it just may save your life.
