About the Book:

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.

My Thoughts:

What an outstanding novel!  "Letters To The Lost" is a heartfelt tribute to the love between a mother and a daughter, and it will definitely hit you right in the feels.  Both Juliet and Declan are lively characters, and the way the two of them meet is one of the most unique setups I've had the pleasure of reading!

This is a general market YA novel, but it is clean and a very quick read.  Perfect for this hot, hot summer! It's my first time reading a book by Brigid Kemmerer, but it most definitely will not be my last.  This one gets my vote for "Best YA General Market Fiction" for the entire year!

Until the next book appears...
