Love letters to the dead, by Ava Dellaira

9782749923567Laurel starts writing a letter to a dead person (Kurt Cobain) as an assignment for her English class. But, instead of giving it to her teacher, she kept the letter and started to write some more, just as writing a diary. There are a lot of things going on in her life (her sister died, her mother left, she goes through share custody between her father and her aunt, she changed school and friends, she is falling in love…) and uses these letters to famous dead people as part of her grieving process.

Another book I kept reading just to see the end of it. It’s quite annoying. I don’t know… I felt like the entire book was crying and begging for a coming of age movie adaptation. It felt fake, and a bit pretentious.
