The Last Letter, Rebecca Yarros
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.
If you've read this book and didn't at least get teary-eyed, I'm not sure we can be friends. Rebecca Yarros is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I've read this and two others of hers recently. They're all different and all so well done. This one just flat out broke my heart. And I still loved it.
Sometimes bad things happen.And there's no blame to be placed.You can't reason with the universe, no matter how sound your logic is … We are imperfect people made that way by an imperfect world, and we don't always get a say in what shapes us.
