About If There’s No Tomorrow
Some books break you so completely, leave you with such a heavy and yet very full heart, that you simply must share them with others. That you feel as if you can’t go another day without talking about the effect this book could have on the world if only more people would read and heed its lessons.
If There’s No Tomorrow is a story of grief, guilt, and giving up the notion that “there’s always tomorrow.” For some time now, I’ve struggled with being open about my innermost thoughts and fears, I’ve struggled with accepting that things will happen and sometimes I control them, sometimes I don’t. 16 year old me really could have used a book like this, honestly, but I’m just so glad it exists now!
There may not be an entirely unheard-of story-line, but that’s the whole point. This is a realistic exploration of some very relevant issues and situations, not a fairy tale.
Lena has a lot to work through, and all the different people reacting to her in various ways, some good and some not so, some helpful and some quite the opposite, it was like looking in a mirror, painfully so. Not that I’ve been in her exact situation, but by God I’ve certainly had very similar, horrible thought processes, and it took someone caring enough to break me out of it for me to get past it.
Armentrout is known for crushing her readers’ hearts, but this time she does so with an ultimately hopeful purpose.
If you are a fan of contemporaries that aren’t full of cupcakes and rainbows, that deal with real-life issues and have flawed characters, you do NOT want to miss If There’s No Tomorrow!
