Love Letters To The Dead by Ava Dellaira
It begins as an assignment for English class: Write a letter to a dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain because her sister, May, loved him. And he died young, just like May did. Soon, Laurel has a notebook full of letters to people like Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Amelia Earhart, Heath Ledger, and more; though she never gives a single one of them to her teacher. She writes about starting high school, navigating new friendships, falling in love for the first time, learning to live with her splintering family. And, finally, about the abuse she suffered while May was supposed to be looking out for her.
Only then, once Laurel has written down the truth about what happened to herself, can she truly begin to accept what happened to May. And only when Laurel has begun to see her sister as the person she was; lovely and amazing and deeply flawed; can she begin to discover her own path.
This book got my attention because of its stunning cover! Just look at its beauty! And then the plot just sounds so deep and intriguing to me. Why was she writing letters to dead people? A lot of people say that the writing style of this book is similar to Perks of Being A Wallflower and honestly I did not love that book. Hopefully I would enjoy this book more.
If you guys have read this book feel free to comment your thoughts about it but please I beg you, NO SPOILERS!
