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.

    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!

    "amazing book. Loved the story."

    Hard to read / listen to if you know someone who committed suicide, especially if they were family or significant other. Therapeutic for me.

    "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
    "Alexis underestimates herself"

    My only complaint about this book (and it's a tiny one) is that in the beginning, Alexis (narrator) states that she is a terrible writer. But the more I listened, the more I realized how wrong she was. This is one of the best, most well written stories I've listened to in a long time. Very touching story.

    Story
    "Real and Beautifully written."

    I know this author is writing from experience and she really expresses the pain and and heartache that happens when you lose a loved one. This is very different than her other books. I like that she didn't sugar coat parts of it. Suicide is such a hard subject to write about but I think it was very real. It is labeled as a romance which I don't think is right. Not sure what it would be. The F bombs were enough that it shouldn't be young adult. Very well written and the narrator was perfect.
