The Last Thing You Said – Sara Biren



Last summer, Lucy’s and Ben’s lives changed in an instant. One moment, they were shyly flirting on a lake raft, finally about to admit their feelings to each other after years of yearning. In the next, Trixie—Lucy’s best friend and Ben’s sister—was gone, her heart giving out during a routine swim. And just like that, the idyllic world they knew turned upside down, and the would-be couple drifted apart, swallowed up by their grief. Now it’s a year later in their small lake town, and as the anniversary of Trixie’s death looms, Lucy and Ben’s undeniable connection pulls them back together. They can’t change what happened the day they lost Trixie, but the summer might finally bring them closer to healing—and to each other.

My Thoughts

I would like to thank the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

I read this book just over a month ago & I still don’t know how I feel about it.

I loved the idea of the book & there were certain bits of the book that I loved but generally I found the book quite slow and very repetitive. I didn’t feel like I really connected to any of the characters.

However I did like that the book was told from dual perspective, it made it easier to understand the story of each character.

I felt like the grieving aspect of the book wasn’t really explored well, I just felt like it was just put in there and not really detailed as much as I would have liked.

Rating 3/5
