Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira
Laurel is assigned to write a letter to a dead person in English class, and this starts a long list of letters to the dead she starts to write over the course of the school year. She writes about everything from new school, new friendships first loves and her newly splinted family. She also writes about her sister May and what happen with her. Can Laurel find out who she is and discover her own path with the past weighting on her?
I love this novel so much, from the first page to the very last. I love that it breaks the mold of how you write a book. This book is written in letter form, but not just letters; Letters to dead people like Kurt Cobain and River Phoenix both whom I love.
About 25 pages in you now that something happen, you not sure what but you know that is was bad. You slowly start to find out bits and pieces in each letter, but you now that it will be a heartbreaking story. It was heartbreaking and I cried. (That’s the amazing thing) I love laurel, she’s just this lost girl trying to understand and deal with everything just as everything around her is falling apart. I find her brave and strong. This Novel is beautifully and emotionally written to the point where you feel the main characters are real. I love everything but some of the slow points, but I understand that this book is meant to be slow and amazing. I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars.
The Cover is so pretty.
