You may have already seen that I’m currently reading Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira. It’s my book for #FRStreetTeam. In celebration of the book’s release next week (and just because I feel like it) I’m hosting a giveaway for two people to win a hardcover copy of the book.
Need to know a bit more about it?
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.
I’ll be posting my book review very soon but for now, I’ll say it’s a beautifully written (and quite dark) coming-of-age story told in a unique and creative way.
All the details you need to know about the giveaway are in the Raflecopter widget below. Read the terms and conditions before entering.
Hurry and enter before it ends if you haven’t already!
im waiting for a book where the main character is just the friend of someone extraordinary.
like a book where everything is told from the view of someone not experiencing whats happening they just have an opinion of it
imagine thg through peetas point of view as the love interest & friend to a girl who is starting a rebellion instead of it being in katniss’s view of being the girl starting a rebellion
I think this is actually really cool tbh
