The day Raquel has been dreading for months has finally arrived. Sasha, her best friend in the whole world — the best friend in the whole world — has died of cancer. Raquel can’t imagine life without her. She’s overwhelmed and brokenhearted.
And then a letter from Sasha arrives. Has she somehow found a way to communicate from the afterlife?
In fact, Sasha has planned an elaborate scavenger hunt for Raquel, and when she follows the instructions to return to Sasha’s grave, a mysterious stranger with striking eyes is waiting for her. There’s a secret attached to this boy that only Sasha—and now Raquel—knows.
This boy, Elijah, might be just what Raquel needs to move on from her terrible loss. But can Raquel remain true to herself while also honoring her friend’s final wish?

Review of The Last Wish of Sasha Cade
Review (4.5 Stars); The Last Wish of Sasha Cade was a beautiful and poignant story about finding peace and being able to start again after losing someone you love. Sasha and Raquel have been best friends and when Raquel loses Sasha to cancer, she can’t imagine living in world without her. As her last dying wish, Sasha has asked Raquel to go on a scavenger hunt that will change Raquel’s life and will show her that Sasha knew exactly what she needed to move on with her life.
This story broke my heart and slowly put it back together again over the course of this book. For Raquel, losing her best friend seemed like the end of her world but by going on this journey, she was able to come to terms with her loss. She loved unconditionally and was willing to do anything for Sasha even after losing her. You definitely want a true friend such as this in your life and I wish I had a little bit of what Sasha and Raquel had. This book will make you laugh, cry and will haunt you well after you finished the last page. A beautiful story and one that shouldn’t be missed.
