The Last Wish of Sasha CadeBook - 2018
"Raquel Clearwater has just buried her best friend, Sasha Cade, and now her grief is overwhelming. And then a letter comes. It's from Sasha, written before she died. Following the letter's mysterious instructions, Raquel returns to Sasha's grave and meets a handsome stranger who just happens to share her best friend's dark skin and startling blue eyes. It turns out that, months before her death, Sasha went against her adopted parents' wishes and investigated her birth family, only to discover she had a biological brother who grew up in foster care. Sasha wanted her brother to know all about her, but she didn't want him to meet a girl on her deathbed. So she set up an elaborate scavenger hunt for Elijah and Raquel--complete with packages, pre-scheduled emails, videos, and a few other tricks--to reveal what her life was like before the cancer. Raquel jumps at the chance to take this journey with Elijah. It's like being with Sasha all over again. But it's painful to see the contrast between Sasha's life of privilege and Elijah's life of need, and Raquel comes to realize that keeping Sasha's secrets may hurt this boy she is growing to care about. Can Raquel be true to her friend while also being true to herself, true to life and true to her new love?"-- Provided by publisher.
