Chapter One Teen Review: Every Last Word

Looking for your next favorite teen read? Check out this Chapter One review for Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone...

Humor, tragedy, mental illness; this book has it all! It tells the story of a teen named Sam who is dealing with OCD and trying to hide it from her "friends." Stone does an outstanding job of making the struggles of a not very ordinary girl relate to the struggles of the everyday teenager. Sam struggles with who she is and who she sometimes pretends to be. She battles with deciding to stay with the popular crowd or transitioning to hanging out with a group of outcasts bound together by poetry. Stone makes you laugh, cry, and think about your friends and yourself. Truly, this book deserves to be treasured for decades to come. I would personally recommend this to friends, teachers, and family members.
