You’ve Reached My Review

A Review of the popular book: You’ve Reached Sam

You’ve Reached Sam by Dustin Thao is a wonderful story about love, loss, and what happens when you’re scared of everything falling apart. It follows Julie—a senior in high school—and how after her boyfriend suddenly passes away, she gets a second chance at a perfect goodbye. 

This book was written with a lot of heart. Going into it readers are aware Sam has to die at some point, yet it still has an unexpected and exciting effect. Thao does a wonderful job of making things perfect and hopeful before he has Sam hang up.

The story was well written and overall it had a nice structure and fairly fast pacing. This is definitely a quicker read but maintains emotions well.


 Give this book a 7/10
