Description
Secret letters spark true love in this emotionally compelling romance from the New York Times bestselling author of A Curse So Dark and Lonely, Brigid Kemmerer.



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.

        February 6, 2017
        Juliet leaves notes at her mother’s grave and, one day, receives a reply. Nearly overnight, Juliet goes from feeling violated that someone read and responded to one of her private letters to her mother to being thrilled by the development. The mystery writer turns out to be school bad boy Declan Murphy, and the teens’ in-person interactions are far frostier than the epistolary intimacy that develops. Each chapter opens with an excerpt from the letters (and eventually emails) that Juliet and Declan exchange, and the first-person narration alternates between them, without any initial indication as to which person is speaking, leaving readers to puzzle it out. Unfortunately, several aspects of Kemmerer’s (Thicker Than Water) story are overdone—the teens’ shared grief (Declan’s sister also died), Declan’s background, and the unfair treatment he endures at school and at home—tilting the story into melodrama. Although Juliet and Declan don’t learn that they have been corresponding with each other until well into the novel, their romance follows the typical ups and downs of a will-they-won’t-they story line. Ages 13–up. Agent: Mandy Hubbard, Emerald City Literary.

      • content: willow123goma - Bottom line: This book (In my opinion) is NOT that great. I thought it was quite exciting, but I couldn't connect with the characters' problems and romances. I felt like I didn't get any meaningful lessons from this book. I do not recommend it, especially for younger kids.
