There’s death all around us.

We just don’t pay attention.

Until we do.

The last time Lex was happy, it was before. When she had a family that was whole. A boyfriend she loved. Friends who didn’t look at her like she might break down at any moment.

Now she’s just the girl whose brother killed himself. And it feels like that’s all she’ll ever be.

As Lex starts to put her life back together, she tries to block out what happened the night Tyler died. But 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.

From New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Hand, The Last Time We Say Goodbye is a gorgeous and heart-wrenching story of love, loss, and letting go.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A moving, stand-alone contemporary YA sure to bring on tears. Emotionally gripping from start to finish, this realistic novel takes a look at tragic loss, grief, and how everyone’s journey varies. What makes this particular story so remarkable is that nothing in it is random or insubstantial; everything has meaning—even something as simple as a card game or text message—and the interconnections are woven flawlessly. Hand does a beautiful job delivering a powerful message.”

    RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)

  • “A quietly powerful, emotionally complex novel that will echo with readers long after it is finished, both shatteringly painful and bright with life and hope.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “[Hand] persuasively conveys the aftermath of suicide and the ways those left behind struggle with grief, anger, and guilt.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The narrative unravels in perfect pacing…Readers will be drawn in by the even pacing, the heavy moments never overwhelming the teen’s story. Raw, emotional, and gripping, this book is Hand’s first realistic fiction title, and fans of her popular “Unearthly” series will follow her genre change willingly. Libraries should jump at having this book, not only because of the author’s previous work, but because it is an excellent and thoughtful exploration of grief.”

    School Library Journal

  • “The characters involved are many…but each story line is distinctly important and carefully woven in. Details of Ty’s last days, Alexis’ sense of guilt, and the incident itself are revealed slowly and are often unexpected but always believable.”
