The Last Present by Wendy Mass, 256 pages, read by Angie, on 07/22/2013

The Last Present is the final book in the Willow Falls series. In this one we finally learn what Amanda and Leo are supposed to do and we get Angelina’s history. Connor’s sister Grace falls into a coma and no one can figure out why. No one except Angelina of course. She never got the chance to finish her benediction/blessing on Grace when she was born and every year she has been thwarted from doing it. Now time is up and it is up to Amanda and Leo to fix things. They must travel back in time to each of Grace’s birthdays and try to fix things.

This has been a fun series. I really enjoyed all the characters and how their lives where affected by Angelina’s meddling. I especially enjoyed learning more about Angelina’s history and how she came to be able to do what she does. I think kids will really appreciate how Mass wrapped up her storylines in this finale.

I received an ARC of this book from Scholastic at the 2013 ALA Conference. Thank you!
