Thoughts: I'm easily becoming a fan of Amber Smith. She has this ability to write these captivating (yet uncomfortable) novels that draws you in until the very end. THE LAST TO LET GO is no exception. From the beautiful writing to the unforgettable characters, this novel is one where I might even say I had a hard time letting go of.

To be honest, I read this novel a while ago and have been procrastinating writing this review. How do I put into worlds a book that touched me deeply while also triggering emotions I wasn't sure I had? In the end, I sat down, thought it through, and let the words flow. Once they did, I started realizing how much THE LAST TO LET GO cut through my very core, and I'm so grateful I read it.

Brooke did not live an easy life. She grew up with an abusive father, and one day her mother just snaps, ultimately killing her father. What happened that day (much like Brooke's life) isn't exactly black and white. There's a huge gray area, and what's left in the wake is Brooke's life. Often times, the story is told through the mother's point of view. What happens when you're the child, and you're left with the broken pieces?

The story is beautifully written, there's no doubt about that. The only reason I'm not giving it five stars is, much like THE WAY I USED TO BE, I found many of the characters to be unlikable. There were so many times where I just wanted to jump into the book and scream at them. The thing is, this novel is courageous. It isn't afraid to tell the truth, even if that means hating the people themselves. Sadly though, I'm one of those people that simply gets TOO irritated if I don't love the characters all too much. I can't get over it, and it ends up effecting my relationship with the book.

Like I said, Amber Smith isn't afraid to get down, dirty, and real, and this novel is as real as it gets. I recommend this to those ready to explore novels outside of the happy-go-lucky realm.

Rating:

4 Stars
