After Sarah Hill’s boyfriend dies, everything changes. Caught up in her grief and desire to see him again, Sarah is challenged in moving on. She’s sucked back into the world Sarah was in before they started dating-being invisible, bullied. She slowly begins to pull away from everyone, unable to do it anymore. Then one day her reality comes crashing down all around her, pushing Sarah to the edge…
A story about a tough topic of suicide and the after effects of those left behind. Sarah loses her boyfriend to suicide and is left wondering why. She struggles through her life and that’s what the story’s about. She’s bullied and also is forced to deal with a bad family situation. I honestly couldn’t get into the story. I couldn’t connect with the main character and didn’t like her for how she acted and snapped at people all the time. Her parents acting the way they did just really pissed me off. Being a mother myself I would never treat my child like that. There was just so much in this story that made me angry. I wish I would’ve like it better but not much happened and I couldn’t connect. I do commend the author for writing on a tough topic but there wasn’t really a lesson that was taken from this to help those that are dealing with a similar situation like I had hoped.
I received a copy in exchange for a review.
From Heather Kirchhoff:
I wrote The Last Night hoping to inspire someone to keep going, to never give up no matter what. It hurts being bullied, or losing someone. Sarah goes through a lot in my book. It tests her so much.
No one should have to go through being bullied, or losing someone they’re close to without knowing why. They shouldn’t question things that was stable.
The Last Night is emotional, that is very true. I felt like I needed to write Sarah’s story. I wanted to show people that they’re not alone.
Sometimes things happen within the same timeframe. It’s like a line of dominoes. One thing happens, and then all of a sudden you’re in a whirlwind. It’s something you can’t stop. The only choice you have is to go with it. Trust me, that can be difficult to do, especially if you are just being dragged behind.
Heather published The Last Night when she was seventeen.
It took Heather six months to finish the book.
Heather stopped writing for two weeks because she wasn’t ready to write a certain scene yet.
Heather Kirchhoff is the author of The Last Night, the Magic series, and Fading. She’s in twelve anthologies, with a few more coming out soon. Heather lives in a small town in Missouri where she works at a nursing home. She has a dog and four cats. She became a bookworm back in sixth grade when her teacher suggested the Phantom Stallion series by Terri Farley and instantly fell in love. Heather loves reading paranormal stories, plus some love ones here and there. Heather has been writing since she was thirteen. Writing is her passion–it helps her escape the world for awhile, as well as reading–she doesn’t know what she’d do without it. When Heather isn’t writing, she is reading, working, taking walks, taking pictures, or spending time with her best friend, animals, and family. Richelle Mead, Alyson Noel, and Stephenie Meyer inspired Heather to write.
