Every Last Word

A New York Times Best Seller If you could read my mind, you wouldn't be smiling.

Samantha McAllister looks just like the rest of the popular girls in her junior class. But hidden beneath the straightened hair and expertly applied makeup is a secret that her friends would never understand: Sam has Purely-Obsessional OCD and is consumed by a stream of dark thoughts and worries that she can't turn off.

Second-guessing every move, thought, and word makes daily life a struggle, and it doesn't help that her lifelong friends will turn toxic at the first sign of a wrong outfit, wrong lunch, or wrong crush. Yet Sam knows she'd be truly crazy to leave the protection of the most popular girls in school. So when Sam meets Caroline, she has to keep her new friend with a refreshing sense of humor and no style a secret, right up there with Sam's weekly visits to her psychiatrist.

Caroline introduces Sam to Poet's Corner, a hidden room and a tight-knit group of misfits who have been ignored by the school at large. Sam is drawn to them immediately, especially a guitar-playing guy with a talent for verse, and starts to discover a whole new side of herself. Slowly, she begins to feel more "normal" than she ever has as part of the popular crowd . . . until she finds a new reason to question her sanity and all she holds dear.

Touching, Beautiful & Important!

Marie Weis, Thalia-Buchhandlung Siegburg

I just finished "Every Last Word" by Tamara Ireland Stone and I'm so emotional. Such a raw, beautiful, important and unique story. A story about mental health, friendship, writing, poetry and love. A story that encourages you to truly be yourself, to love yourself and to accept yourself, no matter how cruel & manipulating your own thoughts can be. A story that shows you, that you are important, wonderful & so worth of love, even if you are suffering from depression, anxiety, an obsessive-compulsive-disorder or any other mental illness. A story that shows how helpful therapy can be & how important a great relationship to your therapist is. A story that shows how writing can be kind of a therapy method & how it can save you in so many ways. A story that shows how important honesty about mental health is. And last but not least a story that shows you that you'll find people who love you just the way you are, who'll support & understand you and people where you can show every side of you, where you don't have to be ashamed or feel uncomfortable. And only those people matter. Never give up, they do exist. Thanks to the author for writing this great, great, great book. We need more stories like this!!

Tally Thiel, Thalia-Buchhandlung Berlin

Your brain being different isn't crazy or broken or wrong. You can feel the realism, love and respect on every page. After years still one of my favorites!

Before reading, I didn't know anything about OCD. Therefore in the beginning I had difficulties to distinguish between Sam's imagination and reality. However, it's a brilliant and unique plot and I can only recommend this book!
