Every Last Word was written by Tamara Ireland Stone. To put it short, the novel follows Samantha (Sam) McAllister as she battles her junior year and her Purely-Obsessional OCD. This book was so mesmerizing that it only took me three to four days to finish. Now I'm a fast reader, but not super super fast, so to me this was a rapid read. Overall this was such an excellent book. The book itself was captivating with the plot and characters, plus the ending just made me so happy. Let's get into it.
The plot was captivating to put it simply. I never thought I would enjoy a book having to do with poetry, but I did! It was like this book bewitched me. It wasn't one of those books where it's a page turner because it's filled with crazy out of this world (literally) adventures; but because it was relatable in a way. You want to know what happens because of this beautiful curiosity and excitement- you just have to know what happens.
The characters were fantastic. They were relatable, like the plot, and they had layers to them. They weren't these one dimensional figures that seemed to only have one mood; these were people you've definitely seen around your school. Their emotions transcended throughout the novel and their viewpoints changed as well. All of this together made for absolutely stunning characters.
Honestly, ending can get on my nerves. This will sound dramatic but sometimes when I'm on the fence about a book, endings can make or break it. But this ending just put the cherry on top! It wrapped everything up nicely and was a happy ending. Now I understand not every single book has to have a happy ending, but one this book did have it's Happily Ever After, it was just perfect.
I recommend this book for plenty of reasons, if you're not into science fiction or fantasy or anything crazy like that- this book will do it for you. If you're a total book nerd or not I feel like this will satisfy you with the plot and characters alone. If you just need a good page turner, this novel will do it. As stated above, I fully recommend this novel.
