I’m going to try to do this without spoilers, but that’s probably just not going to happen.
So be warned.
You are either going to love the end of my story , or you’ll be disappointed and NEED a sequel. If you don’t get the ending, that’s my fault as a writer for not making it clearer, and I apologize.
While I was writing FTCM, I didn’t know how it would end. I had big ideas about Joe coming to rescue Larissa from the hospital, and other nonsense that just wouldn’t work. Then one day, while I was helping my husband with a project, I came up with the ending. I had this moment of shock, and of happiness. It was SO not what I was planning on doing, yet it was exactly what the story needed.
When I wrote the end, I wanted to make sure that the reader had that same moment. That moment where it clicks, and you say…"Holy Cow, I can’t believe…(insert spoiler).” Right now, about 1 in 5 people get that moment. I’ve been told the clues are too subtle, that nowhere in the text does it say that the ending is a happy one.
Well, here’s the words…the ending is a happy ending. Keep thinking about it until you figure out how.
If you can’t figure it out, don’t worry. There is a sequel planned.
Larissa and Joe have more adventures to go on together.
