Letters to the Lost, by Brigid Kemmerer

Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer gave me some serious feels. It was absolutely beautiful and very emotional.

Working long hours at the cemetery for his mandatory community service, Declan finds a letter on a grave. After reading it, he decided to write back. Furious about someone reading her letter to her dead mother, Juliet writes another letter addressing the anonymous writer. Soon the two start talking anonymously and opening up to each other about the difficulties they're facing, slowly helping one another face the challenges and work through their problems. The only problem is that they actually know each in person and they dislike each other.

So the characters, the storyline, everything was just perfect. I can't get over how good this book turned out. At first I was a bit iffy about the characters, they were both great characters but they did little things that made me mad, like how Juliet was very judgmental of Declan and how he couldn't understand that his step-father and mother were trying to help him (even though it wasn't in the best way). But their character development was mind blowing, they went from okay characters to these strong and intelligent characters that you end up falling in love with. These two really help each other be better people, even though they can't see it at first.

The story was really captivating. You may end up reading the entire story in one day because it's that good! There was lots of action, and some really great twists that even I didn't see coming. *JK*
