after years of yearning In the next Trixie Lucy’s best friend and Ben’s si I really really enjoyed this book It s so complicated and so wonderfulReview posted on The Eater of Books blogThe Last Thing You Said by Sara BirenPublisher Amulet BooksPublication Date April 4 2017Rating 4 starsSource ARC sent by a fellow bloggerSummary from GoodreadsLast summer Lucy s and Ben s lives changed in an instant One moment they were shyly flirting on a lake raft finally about to admit their feelings to each other after years of yearning In the next Trixie Lucy s best friend and Ben s sister was gone her heart giving out during a routine swim And just like that the idyllic world they knew turned upside down and the would be couple drifted apart swallowed up by their grief Now it s a year later in their small lake town and as the anniversary of Trixie s death looms Lucy and Ben s undeniable connection pulls them back together They can t change what happened the day they lost Trixie but the summer might finally bring them closer to healing and to each otherWhat I LikedYA contemporary isn t usually my thing and I d not heard of this book until a few months before its publication I did a trade with a blogger and I didn t really need this book but I wanted to help her with a specific collection of hers and so I chose this book to receive I started reading and was a little wary of the story but I uickly fell in loveAlmost a year ago Trixie Ben s younger sister and Lucy s best friend died when she was swimming in the lake and her heart gave out On that day Ben and Lucy were about to express their feelings for each other Everything changed and things were said and Ben and Lucy never became a couple They stopped talking and almost a year later things are awkward and painful between them But they can t avoid each other all summer given that their small lake town is small and Lucy babysits Ben s five year old cousin It s been almost a year but Ben and Lucy s connection hasn t diminished even if they have changed so much When I started reading this book I began to feel a little unsure of it Ben has a girlfriend and Lucy starts to show interest in a new summer renter But it s painfully obvious that Ben and Lucy never got over each other and still care about each other They never dated but they loved each other for years and that wasn t going to go away Ben dates girls and dumps them just as uickly as part of some sort of weird coping mechanism And Lucy Lucy starts to hang out with Simon the renter at first to show Ben that she wasn t thinking about him but then because Simon was actually a decent guySo I ended up not minding the romance being this way at all Given that Ben and Lucy technically never dated they don t owe each other anything especially with how things ended between them Ben was an incredibly huge jerk who lashed out and Lucy wasn t having it The two of them have a valley of heartbreak between them for two people that never datedThis whole book is filled with a lot of pain and hurt and angst and I actually really loved this It broke my heart seeing Lucy and Ben skirt around each other and avoid each other and then snap at each other when they did interact But the sheer amount of emotion that poured out of this story was staggering and so well written Ben is at fault for ruining things between him and Lucy and so you d think I would furious with him and dislike him automatically But after reading several chapters in his POV I didn t dislike him I was still irritated with what went down between him and Lucy after the funeral but I also understand him I get his pain and his coping and his way of dealing with everything although he takes a much destructive and eyebrow raising route than I would Ben is a moody brooding type that gets a lot of attention from the ladies but he s also filled with guilt and self deprecation which was sad to see As stupid as he was in that one moment with Lucy and as stupid as he was for not trying to fix things for almost a year I felt bad for him I liked Ben even when I didn tLucy is a sweet and uiet girl and unlike Ben she really internalized her pain and didn t show people just how badly she was hurting almost a year after Trixie died Lucy is a good person and a good daughter I was cheering for her when she started to hang out with Simon even though I really wanted to see her and Ben patch things up and I knew that they would I think the author was right to include Lucy s relationship with Simon in this story Lucy didn t clearly see just how in love with Ben she was until she started to date Simon and realized how unfair she was being in dating Simon I liked seeing Lucy grow and mature even if she dated a nice guy who wasn t BenThe romance isn t swoony in a traditional sense because again Ben is dating a girl at the start of the story and Lucy eventually starts dating Simon the renter But keep in mind that this book takes place over three months or thereabout and a lot happens in those months There are some subtle swoony moments throughout the book between Ben and Lucy and then there are some actual swoony moments towards the end of the bookI loved seeing so many positive relationships in this book Lucy s relationship with her new best friend Hannah is so strong and wonderful I love how supportive Hannah was and how awesome she was in general And on Ben s side him and his best friend Guthrie have a solid friendship that was good to see Lucy and Emily Trixie sBen s five year old cousin have a great relationship even if Lucy is Emily s nanny Lucy and her parents have their issues but they work on their relationship through the story The same can be said about Ben and his parents Also I actually really liked Ben s girlfriend especially when he broke up with her she wasn t dramatic and over the top She probably knew that Ben was still so in love with Lucy and she let him go without a fight No dramaOverall I enjoyed this book probably than I subconsciously thought I would I don t usually like YA contemporary that is so gritty and heartbreaking and non swoony in a physical sense but this book was wonderful It ends very well so don t worry about that The ending is a fantastic HEAWhat I Did Not LikeMore Ben and Lucy kissing scenes would have been nice Would I Recommend ItI recommend this book to fans of YA contemporary If you re like me and hate messy romances and relationships this one might not be for you though I really enjoyed it It s one of those books that you have to experience for yourself I could repeat that the romance isn t love triangle y at all over and over but you d need to see that for yourself I really enjoyed the story the romance the heartbreak and the swoonsRating4 stars I ll be looking out for by this author Usually I am not one for angst ridden YA contemporary novels but this book was so good and very powerful I made need to reread it in the very near future
