One Last Song Summary:
I was seven when I swallowed my first needle.My mom freaked out and rushed me to the emergency room.
She stayed by my side all night.
I never wanted it to end.
When you spend your whole life feeling invisible-when your parents care more about deals and deadlines than they do about you-you find ways of making people take notice. Little things at first. Then bigger. It's scary how fast it grows. Then one day something happens that makes you want to stop. To get better. To be better. And for the first time, you understand what it's like to feel whole, happy . . . loved. For the first time, you love someone back.
For me, that someone was Drew.
One Last Song Review:
One Last Song. What an amazing book! I got through it within a few hours. Five I think. It's very different from the books I read because of the genres. I usually read paranormal because of the action, horror, mystery maybe even some plain romance. But this was a little bit out of the boundaries. And I am very glad that I read this book.
Saylor Garson is a character to remember. I have never heard of anyone with her disorder and that put a very wild spin on the book. I found myself drawn into her ideas, struggles and her life. She was alone and I felt her pain, when she was with Drew I felt her love and happiness. "I was falling for this scared, lonely, broken, brave man who sang songs about secrets." I nearly cried when I read this line both from happiness and from sadness. Drew was truly a brave soul and I found it so sad to think that the wouldn't get their own happy ending (I am a romantic at heart). He was an original character that had a depth that many characters these days lack. None of the scenes or struggles were sugar coated and I was glad that the problems were faced head on. The characters themselves were eye openers to diseases and disorders that I didn't know existed. And how the human spirit can prevail. The characters had their moments of inspiration and were very realistic.
This book had a vibe kind of like The Fault In Our Stars, although I prefer this much more. Maybe because no one spoiled it or the characters were more real. I fell in love with this book from the way Saylor hurt herself, to the strength inside of Drew. The ending could have been done a bit slower and there were some very, very minor plot issues but overall the book was amazing. I really loved it, recommend this to anyone who will give this book a try and I'm so happy that I got to read this book!
Thanks you Netgalley for letting me read this novel for an honest review!
