Review of Love Letters to the Dead-Ava Dellaira

Laurel has just started high school, and her first English assignment is to write a love letter to someone dead.  Having recently lost her beloved sister and starting school away from childhood friends, Laurel starts writing love letters to Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, Judy Garland, Janis Joplin, Amelia Earhart  and Heath Ledger, and we learn her story from these letters.  With a broken family and a tortured adolescence, Laurel has a lot to say, and more of her life is revealed with each letter.  This novel is haunting and lyrical and wonderful.  4 Elves - Highly recommended for teens
