Review: Love Letters To The Dead by Ava Dellaira.

IMG_0001I got this book as part of the Amazon I deal I posted about at an earlier date; and to be honest, it was the book that I wasn’t really excited to read as I didn’t think it was going to be good, basically.

However, Ava Dellaira proved me wrong, by writing this heart-wrenching and beautiful coming of age novel.

Love Letters to the Dead is about a young girl, Laurel, just starting high school with a terrible secret involving the death of her sister, May. Laurel begins writing love letters to the dead as an English assignment, however, this turned into something much more for her. The love letters are her way of revealing her soul and helping to improve herself. IMG_0002

This book has everything: tragedy, love, secret relationships, a broken home, a broken family and so much more. When Stephen Chbosky said that “Love Letter to the Dead is more than a stunning debut. It is the announcement of a bold new literary voice.” He was so right, and I am so excited to read more of Ava Dellaira’s work. IMG_0003
