About ONE LAST SONG
I was seven when I swallowed my first needle.
My mom freaked out and rushed me to the emergency room.
She stayed by my side all night.
I never wanted it to end.
When you spend your whole life feeling invisible-when your parents care more about deals and deadlines than they do about you-you find ways of making people take notice. Little things at first. Then bigger. It’s scary how fast it grows. Then one day something happens that makes you want to stop. To get better. To bebetter. And for the first time, you understand what it’s like to feel whole, happy . . . loved. For the first time, you love someone back.
For me, that someone was Drew.

This is one of the most eye-opening books I’ve ever read, and is so different from what I normally read. One Last Song makes you question yourself and how you look at others who are suffering from different diseases. We are given a glimpse at the strong bonds that are formed with families and friends to provide comfort and support to those that are suffering.
This book is beautifully written. We are first introduced to Saylor, who suffers from Munchausen syndrome. She finds herself volunteering at the hospital, where she meets a group of people her age who all suffer from various diseases/disorders, with a few of them only having months to live. She is quickly accepted by them, and friendships are formed.
Saylor is immediately drawn to Drew, who suffers from Friedreich’s Ataxia. It doesn’t take long for their attraction to grow from friendship to love. As their relationship grows, Saylor is being eaten away by guilt due to secrets and lies that could destroy every relationship that she has worked to develop in this group. When the truth comes out, will it be too late to make amends?
I highly recommend One Last Song. 4 stars.
