The Last Forever, by Deb Caletti | Book Review #235

This is my review of The Last Forever, from back in 2015. I’ve simply copied and pasted said review into this post. Enjoy!

Endings and beginnings sit so close to each other that it’s sometimes impossible to tell which is which.

Nothing lasts forever, and no one gets that more than Tessa. After her mother died, it’s all she can do to keep her friends, her boyfriend, her happiness from slipping away. And then there’s her dad. He’s stuck in his own daze, and it’s so hard to feel like a family when their house no longer seems like a home.

Her father’s solution? An impromptu road trip that lands them in a small coastal town at Tessa’s grandmother’s. Despite all the warmth and beauty there, Tessa can’t help but feel even more lost.

Enter Henry Lark. He understands the relationships that matter. And more importantly, he understands her. A secret stands between them, but Tessa’s willing to do anything to bring them together—because Henry may just be her one chance at forever.

I dont really know what to say about this book. Yes, the story line is really good. The story mainly focuses on family and personal growth. Beyond that though, when I think back on the book, the book didn’t really amount to anything. The Last Forever is a pretty static story. Nothing really changes.

Even though I found the story to be some-what boring, while I was reading The Last Forever, it was kind of interesting. The book is nicely paced. There wasn’t really any exciting ending.. There was one thing that happened in the story and I was like, WHAT?! The Last Forever is like one big journey.

The MC, Tess, is such a sassy girl. When the book starts, Tess was very…emotionally drained. She had had enough of her dads shenanigans. And everything happens to change when her dad takes Tess to her grandmothers house on an island. After a while, things start to look up for Tess. She gets the happy ending that she needs, and I really appreciate that.

When I finished the book I was left with a sense of happiness. Like I said before, nothing really monumental happened in this book, but I was still very satisfied with the ending.

And if Caletti ever decides to write a sequel to The Last Forever, I will gladly read it!

I gave The Last Forever, 3.5 stars on Goodreads.

Happy Reading!
