So Many Feels
Every Last Word is a truly beautiful book and it definitely is on the top of the list for contemporary books. This book touches on some really serious topics like anxiety disorders and mental illness, but I thought that Tamara Ireland Stone did it beautifully.

The main character, Sam, has OCD, an anxiety disorder. Tamara Ireland Stone does a fantastic job showing how anxiety can affect a person, not only just their life but also the people around them. She not only shows the external struggles that people can see, but goes deep into the internal struggles a person goes through. She shows the reader what many people never have a chance to realize. The struggle to fend off the dark thoughts and to function everyday so that not only do other people see her as normal, but that she can also feel “normal”.

The most unique aspect of Every Last Word is how Stone weaves poetry into the storyline. The poetry opens the windows to the characters’ hearts and gives a depth to characters that you just can’t get with simple characterization. I felt every emotion with this book!


Every Last Word grabs you from the very first page and doesn't let go. It’s a must read for anyone’s contemporary list for the summer. Bring it to the beach- share it with a friend. It is a book you do not want to miss.
