Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer

 

Letters to the Lost is a raw, gritty, haunting story of love and loss.

I was so worried you were him.

Told in alternate POVs,  Juliet and Declan begin an unlikely correspondence which leads to a fervent period of self-discovery.

There is agony in that picture.

Juliet and Declan are bold, fierce, complex characters and their story bursts from the page, sweeping the reader up and into their world.

One day isn’t your whole life.

The only thing that didn’t work for me is the up and down of Declan’s relationship with his mom and step-dad.  I think its eventual outcome just doesn’t have sufficient depth to be plausible.

Every moment is meaningful.

Juliet Young always writes letters to her mother, a world-traveling photojournalist. Even after her mother’s death, she leaves letters at her grave. It’s the only way Juliet can cope.

Declan Murphy isn’t the sort of guy you want to cross. In the midst of his court-ordered community service at the local cemetery, he’s trying to escape the demons of his past.

When Declan reads a haunting letter left beside a grave, he can’t resist writing back. Soon, he’s opening up to a perfect stranger, and their connection is immediate. But neither Declan nor Juliet knows that they’re not actually strangers. When life at school interferes with their secret life of letters, sparks will fly as Juliet and Declan discover truths that might tear them apart.   — Abstract from Goodreads.com
