    1. This book was sort of all over the place for me. I couldn't really connect with the MC because her narrative was such a jumble. I was hoping for some serious swoons, Henry seemed to have so much promise. Alas, I was a bit disappointed in that aspect. In fact, it all of the relationships just didn't really make sense to me. I feel like we didn't get enough of a meeting between anyone before they were all BFFs. I can definitely see the appeal, I'm sure a lot of people will enjoy the journey that T [...]


    2. I really don’t even feel like I can effectively review this book because all I want to do is flail all over the place and shove it in people’s faces so they read it too. This book was absolutely perfect for me, I picked it up on a Saturday morning and before I knew it I was halfway through and dreading the book ending. This book is emotional, this book is funny and this book is engrossing. We meet our MC Tess as she is grieving the recent loss of her mother to cancer. She is living with her [...]


    3. Check out more of my reviews at Singing and Reading in the Rain!When I found this on my Kindle library, possessing no previous knowledge of where or when I downloaded it, I decided to start reading, even though it seemed like a long shot after the first few chapters. However, still I journeyed on, and still found nothing too special about this book.Tess was way too focused on the romance, overall. The book centered around two things: the romance and her efforts to try to keep a pixieball alive. [...]


    4. One of the best books about grief and loss and recovery. Tessa's grief over her mother's death is raw and real. As someone who also lost her mother after a long illness, I can testify that the book is true to life. At times, gut wrenching difficult to read but beautifully written and ultimately hopeful. The love story is not what you would expect and the book was so much richer for that aspect of it. Loved ever page even as cried through most of it.


    5. I was sent this book by Simon and Schuster for review a few months ago and I finally got to it!I went in to this book not knowing what to expect and I really enjoyed it! I was expecting the story to be an epic love story, but it wasn't at all. It really focuses more on family and personal growth. This is something that I usually don't enjoy but I really like the way this one was handled. The book had a bit of a slower start and parts of the beginning were a bit hard to follow, but once you get u [...]


    6. I liked Tess. I liked her dad and the fact that he was allowed to have a total crisis while still very clearly loving his daughter. I liked the complicated journey their grief took them on. I liked the fact that her mother's death lived in her heart and in the heart of this book without everything becoming maudlin. It felt like a very real grief, one that will always ache when you poke at it, but not always in a bad way. Really, I was with this book up until the reveal. Not that it was a surpris [...]


    7. This book was magical. There were so many elements to this book that I just loved so much. We have the main character Tess, who has recently lost her mother and she is trying to deal with the grief and guilt of it. One day her father decides he wants to go on a road trip and they leave their lives behind and embark on this journey. But soon she finds herself on this tiny island where her father grew up. Here she meets Henry Lark. And she immediately feels a connection to him. I loved their relat [...]


    8. Actual rating: 3 stars. Tessa is a teenager dealing with the recent death of her mother from cancer. She's depressed. She doesn't know what to do. Her father is addicted to weed and alcohol. He isn't coping well at all, and he isn't being a father figure for Tessa. All Tessa wants to do is just get through each day, and taking care of Pix, her mother's plant that her mother took care of her entire life. And then one day her father says they're going on a trip: an epic road trip that should be ev [...]



    9. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Simon Pulse and Edelweiss.)17-year-old Tessa lives with her father after her mother died of cancer, and they still haven’t really learned how to live with just the two of them.When her father than wants to go on a crazy road-trip to the Grand Canyon, Tessa has to go, and takes with her ‘Pixiebell’, a plant that was her grandfathers, which her mum looked after. Unfortunately though, Pixiebell start [...]


    10. I have absolutely fallen in love with this book. Deb Caletti is a wonderful author, but sometimes her books can be a little hit or miss. This one is a definite hit and has quite possibly taken the spot of my favorite Caletti book. Yeah, it's that good. I read it in about 6 hours just because I couldn't put it down.I think I loved it so much because Tessa was so relatable, at least to me. It's like I was reading about myself. She could be really sensitive and then sarcastic, but all around just r [...]


    11. While it took me a bit to really get into this book, once I did I was hooked. I think it takes a good look into the grieving process, especially focusing on the guilt the ones left behind often feel. It also shows how when you love someone, it doesn't always have to be a romantic love. If you're anything like me, you're going to spend a majority of this book really pissed at Tessa's dad. I even stopped reading to lecture my husband about how to treat our kids I also spent a lot of time confused [...]


    12. Solid writing and a vivid setting, as expected; loved Tess, her whole family, the stuff with the plant, her grief coping mechanisms, and the seed facts, but also: (view spoiler)[Deborah, Debbie, Debs, why couldn't we have just had either a nice romance or the discovery of a Gay Best Friend to subvert the Randomly Meeting A Cute Boy trope, instead of a horrible feelings-ruining mash-up of the two. On the bright side, I guess that's better than the Creepy Unknown Half Sibling Pheromones I was expe [...]


    13. If a book that walks the path of a girl and her very special plant sound intriguing, then I highly suggest you read this novel. Deb Caletti created a realistic fiction book, “The Last Forever”, that follows the path of a 17 year old girl, Tess Sedgwick, and her father. Sadly, Tess’s mother had passed to cancer and it was just too much for Tess’s father to handle. Before she passed she had left a plant, Pix, with Tess. Tess’s grandfather had gotten the seeds to this rare plant and passe [...]


    14. 3.5 starsThe motif of motherless daughters has been well mined by YA authors over the years. Whether dead mothers or absent, either physically or emotionally, we have seen this thread before.But perhaps we have not seen it quite as it is presented here.Tessa's mother died of cancer about a year ago, and during those intervening months, she has realized that there is no such thing as "forever." Everything changes. Her relationship with her boyfriend isn't what it once was - not that it ever was a [...]


    15. The Last Forever is a book about the grief and the endless, never-ending journey you go through after the loss of a parent. However while the subject was intense, I never fully connected with the characters and just didn’t feel it.First line of The Last Forever:“In those early months, when the beautiful and mysterious Henry Lark and I began to do all that reading, I often skimmed over the name. “My Thoughts on The Last Forever:I didn’t hate this book, I just didn’t enjoy it. If I have [...]


    16. Given the chance I read Deb Caletti books all day. Her books are so well written and have so much in store for the reader! I just love them.Plot: This is about a girl who’s life is changed in an instance. Nothing seems the same so her dad drives her across country on a whim. I can tell you that this story pulls you in immediately. You feel the plot so sad, so wanting to break out of the mold. The plot moves at a steady pace allowing the reader the right moments to immerse themselves in the sto [...]


    17. I'd read one of Deb Caletti's other books, Honey, Baby, Sweetheart, three months ago and I really enjoyed it. I was doubtful but I thought it was really funny and I loved the characters. I'd actually forgotten how much I liked Honey, Baby, Sweetheart so when I started The Last Forever, I was once again doubtful. I'll never doubt Deb again! The Last Forever is witty, emotional, and deals with some important things. The main character and her dad are working though the death of her mom and I feel [...]


    18. I WOULD RATE IT 3.5 IF I COULD.-------------------I dont really know what to say about this book. Yes, the story line is really good. The story mainly focuses on family and personal growth. Beyond that though, when I think back on the book, the book didn't really amount to anything. The Last Forever is a pretty static story. Nothing really changes.Even though I found the story to be some-what boring, while I was reading The Last Forever, it was kind of interesting. The book is nicely paced. Ther [...]


    19. This was a very interesting book on loss and grief and relationships. Tessa lost her mother and her father goes a little crazy - okay maybe a lot, pulling her out of school a week before it ends, dragging her 1/2 way across the country and smoking pot. He was a bit of a loser who ended up getting his act together.Caletti integrates facts on plants for each chapter. This is because Tessa possesses a special plant—a Pixiebell—that her mother got from her father. How he obtained the plant was e [...]


    20. "My home is yours for as long as you want it to be. But are you running, Tess?""Running away can also be running to."What a great great story. I found Tess to be quirky but hilarious. I thought she was snarky but WOW, the life she was handed was tough so I think she earned her sass. I loved her humor and her thoughts, her pain and her need to hold on to her mom and the memory.But I also understood her anger. Her dad abandoning her (even though I saw his reasons too.) This was so well done. I nev [...]


    21. I received this free eARC from Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review. Deb Caletti and I just don't get along. I've read numerous books of hers and I just can't do it. The covers trap me. The synopsis sounds amazing. And then I start to read the book and I. Just. Can't. Get. Through. Them!This is probably a fantastic book that all readers will love, but I've learned that she is just not meant for me. I will most definitely recommend her to other readers who enjoy similar books, but for my pe [...]


    22. Unexpectedly fresh characters and situations make The Last Forever stand out from the pack. This story is about life after losing a parent, the nature of love and the beauty of the everyday people in our lives. So often realistic reads are grim. The Last Forever is believable because it also includes the moments of hope and even fun that can coexist with hardship. It is both realistic and uplifting.


    23. The Last Forever in three lines. Deb Caletti did it, after a slow start: she made me love Tess and the "pixiebell." Tess has a heavy load, what with the dead mother, the AWOL father, the sneak transplantation, the ailing responsibility, and behold, the puzzling boy, but the journey is sweet and wise. After more switchbacks than a mountain road, Caletti also pulled off an ending that both surprised and pleased me.


    24. As a character I got incredibly frustrated with Tess, for "falling" so easily for the boy as whata distraction? I wish more of the focus was on her grief and her plot with the seed, which always felt like an afterthought


    25. Okay I was not expecting that ending at all Like, really?I don't know what to say. No words.I liked the plot with the whole plant fiasco, but the "secret" that was hidden among the characters, I didn't like.Overall, it was okay.



    26. I almost passed on this book, because of the title's similarity to my least favorite TV episode of all time, but I'm glad I didn't. Much like the impetuous road trip Tess's father takes her on, the week before the end of school, Deb Caletti takes readers on a voyage that takes us through grief, anger, first love, first heartbreak (technically times two, or three, depending on how we're counting,) finding one's tribe, the not that long route from outsider to insider, dreaming the impossible dream [...]


    27. It was definetley a more lengthier read for me because it takes me longer to read books that arent instantly captivating. But the message overall was good. Though I dont nessecarily understand how the events in the plot resembled that theme. But I guess if you read between the lines and dug deep into the surface you would find out how. I also didnt too much care for how fast the most important events came and went. That also took away from the book. But I liked the occasional sentimental passage [...]


    28. I had never read anything but Deb Caletti before this, but oh my heart! I really loved the characters in this, and while the way that Tess found out about Henry was a little bit shitI don't know. I still loved him as a character, and I just wanted things to work out so everyone was happy. It just really made y heart hurt, in a good way, and I'm definitely looking forward to reading more by this author!
