Product description

Review

“Reminiscent of Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower, this is powerfully emotional stuff.” ―BCCB

“Dellaira's characters are authentically conceived and beautifully drawn.” ―The Horn Book

“Best for teens who enjoyed Stephen Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower.” ―School Library Journal

“Laurel and her friends' struggles and hard-won successes are poignant, and seeing Laurel begin to forgive herself and May is extremely moving.” ―Publishers Weekly

“I simply loved this book. Love Letters to the Dead is more than a stunning debut. It is the announcement of a bold new literary voice.” ―Stephen Chbosky, author of The Perks of Being a Wallflower

“A brilliant story about the courage it takes to keep living after your world falls apart. A heart-wrenching celebration of love and friendship and family.” ―Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Speak

“With beautiful observations of where life can take us, from grieving to celebrating, disappointment to wonder, LOVE LETTERS TO THE DEAD is a love letter to living.” ―Jay Asher, author of 13 Reasons Why

“Dear Ava Dellaira: Your book broke my heart, and pieced it back together. As with Kurt, Janis, Amelia and the others who are gone but still somehow here, LOVE LETTERS TO THE DEAD leaves an indelible mark.” ―Gayle Forman, author of If I Stay

“As wondrous--and as fearless--as a shooting star.” ―Lauren Myracle, author, The Winnie Years

“Riveting, captivating, utterly disarming. I could not put this book down! LOVE LETTERS TO THE DEAD is like discovering a shoebox full of notes addressed to someone else. I read fast, afraid I'd be caught peeking at something I wasn't ever supposed to see. A voyeuristic delight!” ―Siobhan Vivian, author of The List

“Effective and satisfyingly heartbreaking.” ―Kirkus Reviews
