Review: Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira
If you had lost your sister in the hunger of the dark, what would you do? Learning the facts about yourself, discovering only the most hurtful part of the past for a newer and deeper understanding of the present... And the only way you'd think you'd be able to let go of yourself and of everything that barred you down was when you wrote letters. For the dead.
Because that's what Laurel did.
Recently, Laurel has lost her older sister, May, which left her scarred, heartbroken, and traumatized. May was everything to her -- a guardian angel, a role model, and a beautiful person all underneath the flaws she carried around. Until an occurrence of a terrible incident transpired, all Laurel could think of was May.
Her dead sister.
Her dead angel.
And all Laurel wants is to have her sister back, reverse what happened, and live a normal life -- notwithstanding, of course, the tearing relationship her family is undergoing. But what could she do? All she could is live her life as if it were normal again... and write letters to dead, which -- she can't lie -- did help attenuate her pain.
