Waiting On Wednesday || Love Letters to the Dead

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine

This week we're skipping our usually Wreck It Wednesday post and doing Waiting On Wednesday instead. If you didn't know, this is a weekly meme to highlight an upcoming release that you're really excited about. This is a book that I cannot wait for and I'm super excited to make a post about it since it comes out next week!

Love Letters to the Dead

Author: Ava Dellaria
Release Date: April 1, 2014
Publisher: Macmillan
Pages: 323
Reading Level: Young Adult

"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."

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
