What if a message someone sends you today is the last you’ll ever receive from them? Would you respond differently, or even at all, if you knew that the end of a friendship, a brutal breakup, or worse might be coming, and that this might be your only chance?
 
The collection The Last Message Received includes over a hundred final text messages, social media posts, emails, and more. Adapted from the popular Tumblr The Last Message Received—followed by more than 85,000 people and selected as a finalist for the Shorty Award—the Last Message Received book features sudden endings and the type of loss that will inspire readers to reflect on what’s essential in their own lives and the importance of celebrating the people they love every day.

About the Author

Emily Trunko is an astonishing 16-year-old girl from the small town of Copley, Ohio. At age eleven, she started a book review blog called On Emily's Bookshelf, and at age fourteen she created The Clover Chain Project—dedicated to pairing up teens struggling with similar issues, which attracted local media attention. Emily created two Tumblr projects that became Internet sensations and books. Dear My Blank was inspired by her personal notebook of letters that she wrote but never intended to send. And The Last Message Received grew out of her curiosity about life-changing letters, notes, and texts that people have received. Emily continues to be fascinated by the way people connect through the written word.
