If you’re reading this, well, you know the last-letter drill. You made it. I didn’t. Get off the guilt train, because I know if there was any chance you could have saved me, you would have.
I need one thing from you: get out of the army and get to Telluride.
My little sister Ella’s raising the twins alone. She’s too independent and won’t accept help easily, but she has lost our grandmother, our parents, and now me. It’s too much for anyone to endure. It’s not fair.
And here’s the kicker: there’s something else you don’t know that’s tearing her family apart. She’s going to need help.
So if I’m gone, that means I can’t be there for Ella. I can’t help them through this. But you can. So I’m begging you, as my best friend, go take care of my sister, my family.
Please don’t make her go through it alone.
The Last Letter by Rebecca Yarros is an emotionally heart-wrenching tale about strength and courage that has managed to consume me whole body and soul. This phenomenal story has completely obliterated my heart and I find myself still struggling to control my emotions hours after reaching the last page. Seriously make sure to grab a box of tissues because if you are anything like me you are going to desperately need them as tears will be streaming down your face.
Loss…Tragedy…Heartache…those are just a few words that I would use to describe this story and that doesn’t even begin to grasp the entirety of the journey that these characters experience. Ella and Beckett’s love will take you places you never expected to go and leave you breathless. One moment you will feel joy and happiness, but in the next breath you will be weeping and full of sorrow. This is just one of those stories that will leave you guessing until the very end. There is no way to anticipate the twists and turns that will be thrown our way, but that is what makes it so worth it.
