You’ve Reached Sam

I’m trying to read a little more this year – and so far so good.

My latest read was You’ve Reached Sam by Dustin Thao and what did I think?? Well… this:

Blurb: Filled with the heartache of first love and loss, plus a touch of magic, Dustin Thao’s You’ve Reached Sam is an emotional romance, with a powerful story about knowing when to say goodbye.

‘Have your tissues at the ready when you dive into Dustin Thao’s emotional novel’ – PopSugar

Seventeen-year-old Julie has her future all planned out: move out of her small town with her boyfriend Sam, attend college in the city, spend a summer in Japan. But then Sam dies. And everything changes.

Desperate to hear his voice one more time, Julie calls Sam’s phone just to listen to his voicemail. And Sam picks up the phone . . .

What would you do if you had a second chance at goodbye?


My Thoughts: When Julie’s boyfriend dies in a terrible accident her whole world falls apart. They had their whole future planned out together, how is she meant to do it alone? And how can she move on without ever getting the chance to say goodbye?

I bought this book on a whim, I think it was on offer, and I am very glad I did. A unique love story which allows Julie the chance to reconnect with Sam – they don’t know how, or why, or for how long… but being able to say all the things which had gone unsaid might just be the only way to let Julie move on with her life.

A really enjoyable read, a few tears, a few smiles, and a wholly satisfying tale.
