Epic Conclusion. In this conclusion to the Everything Trilogy, we follow up shortly after the ending of the 2nd book and get an Ian-centric story this time. In it, we struggles as a kid trying to deal with his mother’s Dissociative Identity Disorder and how the issues that it caused have played out in his adult life. Humourous with inside jokes for the reader at times, particularly when Aimee follows up some thought with “but that is [Insert James or Ian Here]’s story to tell”. Overall this is probably the heaviest of a heavy trilogy, but it is a fitting conclusion that wraps up the last unresolved thread from the first two books. Read the first two books first, but you’ll want to have this one handy when you finish Book 2. 🙂
Don’t Leave This Behind. Wow. If the first book in this series was a gut punch, this one was a roundhouse to the face. Picking up several years after the events of the first book, we continue the story of one of the first book’s characters and the impacted families. Amazing look into a phenomenon introduced in the first book, and some surprising twists to some of the plot lines introduced in the first book and greatly expanded upon in this one.
This One’s a Keeper. Maybe not the smartest idea I’ve ever had to read this one on a Bahamian cruise, as it is extremely emotionally intense. But an amazing story that I’m glad to have finally read, and presents an interesting twist that I had never seen a story really delve into. Very much looking forward to finishing out this trilogy and seeing where the author takes it.
