"Love Letters To The Dead " by Ava Dellaira

Rating: Excellent! (5)

Love Letters To The Dead   by  Ava Dellaira

Love Letters To The Dead was an excellent book. The writing style was unique, as displayed in letters. The book started off with an English assignment given to the main character, Laurel. She had to write a letter to a dead person. While the assignment seemed rather boring, Laurel was touched by it because a death had occurred in her family. She decided to write the letter to a musician whom the dead family member loved. From there, the assignment spiraled out of control. Instead of turning the work in, Laurel began to use it as her journal. Through this journal, we see the journey she takes to overcome the depression that has kicked in after the unexpected death. Or was it even unexpected? While Laurel experiences first love, weird and quirky friends, and love for music, we all begin to wonder how this loved one died. Was it was truly unexpected? Or was there a way to stop it?
