Synopsis

Famous Last Words by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski

Sixteen-year-old Samantha D'Angelo has death on the brain. Her summer internship at the local newspaper has her writing obituaries instead of soaking up the sun at the beach. Between Shelby, Sam's boy-crazy best friend; her boss Harry, a true-blue newspaper man; and AJ, her fellow intern scum (A.K.A. the cute drummer for a band called Love Gas), Sam has her hands full. But once she figures out what-or who-is the best part of her summer, will she mess it all up? As Sam learns her way around both the newsroom and the real world, she starts to make some momentous realizations about politics, ethics, her family, romance, and most important - herself.

Reviews

Something of a love note to print journalism. . . . Snappy and contemporary, furthered by Sam's wry, self-deprecating narration and convincingly colloquial dialogue. Cleverly titled, realistically written, and on the whole engaging and sympathetic, this story rings true. --Kirkus Reviews It's easy to fall for Sam's self-deprecating wit, go-getter enthusiasm, occasional stumbles, and fascination with boys
