Rated 3 out of 5 by from Emotional The Last Time We Say Goodbye was emotional but I felt like it was a little lacking when it wasn't focused on Tyler's suicide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intriguing I didn't know what to expect from a book about a suicide.....all i can say it is not morbid in the least, the journey of a sister to come to terms with the aftermath in a truly real fashion

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Raw and Honest and Brilliant I had to let this book sit with me for a while after I read it. I was expecting tears, I was expecting to cry. And I did. At the End. The very last chapter got me. I do not ever want to know what it is to survive something like this. To be the ones left to pick up the pieces. This book put a lot of my thoughts into perspective. It gave me new appreciation for the life I have. The ups and downs. I have only ever read books of this nature from the side and thoughts of the committer, never from the other side. This was a new and bold take on it. The book is raw, and hard. It is filled with emotion and anger and people. It is an incredibly cathartic read. At least it was for me. I put this book down and it felt heavy after. My heart felt heavy, for the writer, for the characters, just in general. Thank you so much for writing this book. It will truly stay with me for a good long time.
