I don’t even know how to write a review for this one. It gripped me and didn’t let me go. I’m still thinking about Letters to the Lost.

Have you ever seen A Cinderella Story with Hilary Duff and Chad Michael Murray? You know the drill: boy and girl exchange messages, keep their names a secret, but reveal what they wouldn’t to the public. Letters to the Lost used this plot line successfully.

The cover was beautiful but I was weary of it being too heavy and sad. While it does deal with sad subjects, I didn’t feel it dragged me down.

I loved the characters, I loved the story, and I loved the development of the characters and story. lol

Last Words:

This review is short, but the book is oh so good. Highly highly recommend!
