Praise For The Last Thing You Said

"This is a brave debut, a brave look at the raw, messy, confusing bits of young love" 

— S.M. Parker, author of THE GIRL WHO FELL.

"A beautiful, gut-wrenching story about the complexities of grief and the saving grace of family, friendship, and love. Brave, raw, and exquisitely written." 

— Marci Lyn Curtis, author of THE ONE THING

"Biren's debut novel offers a tender look at a particular moment in the lives of two teens...The best kind of tragic love story."

— Kirkus

"Fans of Sarah Dessen and Huntley Fitzpatrick’s books will find much to love in this emotional romance."

— School Library Journal

"Biren’s tender story aches as the teens and their families try to put the pieces of their lives together again and find a way to heal... The compelling story will leave readers feeling the characters’ pain and cheering for them at the same time—and looking forward to more from this author."

— Booklist
