Publisher's Summary

There's death all around us.

We just don't pay attention.

Until we do.

The last time Lex was happy, it was before. When she had a family that was whole. A boyfriend she loved. Friends who didn't look at her like she might break down at any moment.

Now she's just the girl whose brother killed himself. And it feels like that's all she'll ever be.

As Lex starts to put her life back together, she tries to block out what happened the night Tyler died. But there's a secret she hasn't told anyone--a text Tyler sent that could have changed everything.

Lex's brother is gone. But Lex is about to discover that a ghost doesn't have to be real to keep you from moving on.

From New York Times best-selling author Cynthia Hand, The Last Time We Say Goodbye is a gorgeous and heart-wrenching story of love, loss, and letting go.

    Audiobooks have had such a positive impact on my quality of life as I have Chronic Migraine & screens/print can be too hard to view often!

    Story
    "Such sweet sorrow"

    This one really exceeded my expectations. For the most part, I did not want to put it down! It is a very well-rounded novel that incorporates love, loss, strength, family, relationships, secrets, surprise, healing, etc. The main characters are easy to like, and I found myself rooting for all of them. Although the main subject matter of the plot is not a happy one, the novel continually shines. I laughed, I was touched, & was surprised in a great way. I read constantly, and this is one of my favorite novels of the year so far. I will be checking out the author again, for sure! The narration was amazing, I adore Julia Whelan and her performance here enhances the novel in my opinion. I was out of credits and purchased this one, and it was very much worth every penny!

    "Great book"

    One of the biggest obstacles reading a book via Audible is liking the reader's voice. This narrator was great. The story was amazing. It was a great cry!

    "Just Another Sad Suicide Story? NOT!!"

    I fell in love with Cynthia Hand's writing while enjoying her Unearthly series, and I must say I was not disappointed with her latest. She has such a relatable way of approaching the subject of death and suicide that just touches the heart, and of coarse Miss Julia Whelan just knocked the narrating performance out of the park (as with anything she narrates). Keep these great stories coming Cynthia. This fan can't wait to see what's next!

    "A little young for my taste"

    The storyline just did not match up to what I was ready for. It's a good read, most women can relate to the main character in someway.

    Story
    "Well read and deeply written"
    Would you try another book from Cynthia Hand and/or Julia Whelan?

    The reading was amazing and the story was very deeply written. I cried so many times while listening and parts of it still haunt me. I guess that means that it was great - especially in the eyes of the author - that she touched me with her words so strongly. However, beware of how emotional the story is before you start it because it will suck you in quick and then you can't stop, even if you want to.

    "great book!"

    surprised how much this story mirrored my life. The narrator's male character voice was terrible but I was able to get through it.

    "Not a bad listen"

    It took awhile for this story to get going but is overall it was entertaining.
    The ending was a little "blah" though.
