The day Raquel has been dreading for months has finally arrived. Sasha, her best friend in the whole world — the best friend in the whole world — has died of cancer. Raquel can’t imagine life without her. She’s overwhelmed and brokenhearted.
And then a letter from Sasha arrives. Has she somehow found a way to communicate from the afterlife?
In fact, Sasha has planned an elaborate scavenger hunt for Raquel, and when she follows the instructions to return to Sasha’s grave, a mysterious stranger with striking eyes is waiting for her. There’s a secret attached to this boy that only Sasha—and now Raquel—knows.
This boy, Elijah, might be just what Raquel needs to move on from her terrible loss. But can Raquel remain true to herself while also honoring her friend’s final wish?
Cheyanne Young is a native Texan with a fear of cold weather and a coffee addiction that probably needs an intervention. She loves books, sarcasm, and collecting nail polish. After nearly a decade of working in engineering, Cheyanne now writes books for young adults. She also runs a bookish Etsy shop.
Cheyanne lives near the beach with her family, one spoiled rotten puppy, and a cat that is most likely plotting to take over the world. Her newest book, The Last Wish of Sasha Cade, releases in 2018.
Cheyanne is represented by Kim Lionetti of BookEnds Literary.
This is truly a heartfelt story about the love between friends, even if one is gone too early. I loved the way the author unfolded this story about Sasha and her best friend Raquel and their last moments together. Yes, there is a romance involved between Raquel and Elijah but the way that comes about will take your breath away and SWOON. The way Sasha continues to support Raquel even after she dies from cancer reminds me of another story, PS I Love You.
I think that Sasha was wise beyond her years in planning her “life” after death and how she wanted Raquel to show her estranged brother to all of the important things in her life. So yes, you need to suspend belief to get on with this journey. It is very easy to do though. I really enjoyed this one and look forward to more by this author.
