A Goodreads user asked:
Hey, i am a little confused about the end. Can you tell if Oakley survived the accident then why was it written in the epilogue like she is dead? I mean in epilogue, Lincoln say the words like "I lost Oakley Ann" and "I have to let go of all our memories and everything we shared together"
This answer contains spoilers… (view spoiler)[Yes, she survied. As they kiss she says " It's just pizza." which was their phrase. She goes back to her original name rather than the fake one Oakley. So Lincoln was letting go of her old name and getting used to her real one. The writer just wanted to scare us. (hide spoiler)]
