Synopsis:
It’s been five years since Aubrey Glass left her Long Island hometown and since then, she’s crafted five perfect suicide notes—just in case. Now, her former best friend has gone and killed herself—Rachel always did have to be the center of attention—and Aubrey can’t believe her luck.

But Rachel’s untimely death doesn’t leave Aubrey in peace. There’s a voicemail from her former friend, left only days before her death that Aubrey must face—and worse, a tasteless after-party, disguised as a memorial for Rachel, that promises the opportunity to catch up with everyone…including the man responsible for everything that went wrong between her and Rachel.

As the event approaches, memories of friendship tangle with painful new encounters while underneath it all, Aubrey feels the rush of something closing in, something she can no longer run from. In one devastating night, everything will change. As the past and present collide, facing the future will force Aubrey to confront herself and decide what will define her…what lies behind or what waits ahead.

LAST TRAIN TO BABYLON is a gripping novel of twisting relationships and raw emotions pulled taut by a touch of delightfully dark comedy as a young woman faces the demons of a past she’s buried and discovers that the life she desires is one she must demand from herself.

REVIEW

LAST TRAIN TO BABYLON is a very dark and tragic New Adult Fiction story about friendship and trauma. When I read the synopsis of the story, I knew I was in for a wild ride of emotions. For debut novel, Charlee brought it on with this story and I applaud her for bringing a compelling story to the table. It’s a story about a teen that went through a traumatic experience that ultimately leads her to be the person she is at the end of the book.

What I liked about LAST TRAIN TO BABYLON is that it gives the reader a lot of insight into the story because it switches between the Past and Present and I find this to be a very good thing in books because it helps the reader understand the story more and feel more attachment to the characters, which is what happened to me while reading this story.

It is very raw and brutal at times and this leads to a couple slaps to the face and punches, too. Like I said before, it is very dark but in a positive way. It has a bit of a slow pace but I really enjoyed this story.
