The Last Time We Say Goodbye

the-last-time-we-say-goodbyeSince her brother, Tyler committed suicide, Lex has been trying to keep her grief locked away. But memories of Tyler haunt her every step, and there’s a secret she hasn’t told anyone – a text Tyler sent, that could have changed everything.

Lex’s brother is gone. But Lex is about to discover that a ghost doesn’t have to be real to keep you from moving on.

A story about suicide and coping up with the loss for those who were left behind.

This story is narrated by Lex, some kind of a Math genius. Her life after her brother’s suicide was not perfect. Her mom and dad are divorced and her dad has a new wife. After her brother’s suicide, Lex kind of shut herself out from everyone who cares about her. She is visiting a therapist regularly but for her the sessions does not feel any better. She blames herself for not being able to save his brother.

There might be times that you can’t understand Lex’s character, but while you read the story, there is a side of you that will understand what she was going through.

Eventually, she slowly opens up to the people who cares about her, who did not give up on her. She then realizes that there is nothing that one can do if one already decided to end their life. It is their decision. She also realized that the text message that her brother sent before he died was not because he needs someone to talk to but because he wanted to say goodbye.

This story is not just about talking about loss but it also talks about second chances…

second chance for friendship…

second chance for love…  and

second chances for yourself.

There’s Death all around us. We just don’t pay attention until we do.
