Six Goodbyes We Never Said
The novel Six Goodbyes We Never Said greatly represents the mental illnesses of depression and OCD. This novel switches through two characters’ minds. Both characters have been through the traumatic experience of their parents passing away. Naima’s father was killed while serving the military, and her mother died after giving birth to her. Naima has a stepmother named Nell who she greatly dislikes. Naima and Nell go down to Naima’s grandparents’ house for the summer, but only Naima stays. While Naima is at her Grandparents’ she meets the other main character named Dew. Dew has also lost his parents. It took a while for his sister to warm up to their new parents, but she finds a great hobby that she cannot stop talking about. Dew is always carrying around this tape recorder, recording everything to help him cope with his loss.
At first Naima despises Dew, but that ends up changing. This was a very interesting and heartbreaking story.
