Yet, another Teens' Top Ten nominee!!

Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira

Love Letters to the Dead

By: Ava Dellaira

Genre: YA Realistic fiction

Pages: 336

Published: 2014

Read: August

4.5 out of 5

Another Teens’ Top Ten nominee! This is a great book about a teen dealing with the death of her older sister. Throughout 2014, death has been a common theme in YA novels; however I found this book very unique. Laurel is assigned to write letters to a deceased person; through her letters she comes to terms with her own family’s death.  Another fascinating aspect is the famous individuals Laurel chooses to write – Kurt Cobain, River Phoenix, and Janis Joplin, among others – brought back childhood memories for me. In addition because she included information about their particular deaths I was able to learn as I read.
I feel this book is well deserving of the nomination.
