What the community says about Letters to the Lost
- "Guys. I was not prepared for how unputdownable this book would be for me. I read it in about 3 sittings, despite having a baby and deadlines and a filthy house and all of the other things. Juliet and Declan's story grabbed me from the very first page. I found myself saying "just one more chapter" again and again and again, only to find myself 50 or 100 pages further into the book. My favorite part was how real the characters became in the space of just a few lines - their pain, their vulnerability, their hope, all of it. You're not only rooting for them as a potential couple but as individuals who desperately need healing separately, too. In fact, I just all around loved that the romance (though strong) wasn't the focus of the story. That we get to know their families, their friends, their teachers, mentors, etc, and that each one of them feels as real as the two leads. Our lives aren't made up of one person, they're made up of a dozen people, all of whom have roles to play."
- "My mother just passed away recently so this book really hit home. This book was like therapy for me. It made me laugh. It made me cry. And in the end I'm so glad i decided to stick it through even though the subject matter really hit close to home and at times was hard to cope with the pain of seeing myself as the main character."
- "This book is a tearjerker for sure. I cried as I read Letters to the Lost. I have just experienced the loss of my mother so I could relate to this book on a personal level. In addition to having emotional depth, this book has interesting developments and surprising twists in the plot. This is a very engaging book that is a page turner! I finished the book in one sitting. Great book!"
- "This book isn't really bad, it's just an exhaustingly perfect example of a genre I like to call "award bait." This hits every somber and dramatic note necessary to be praised as deep and emotional, but it just felt so...rote. I don't know, maybe it just didn't click with me, but I just felt myself bored by every predictably dramatic twist and turn.""Letters to the Lost actually had me welling up in tears at one point, it is very rare that a novel makes me that emotional but this one had so many ups and downs its impossible not to go along for the ride. I think it is a bit of a slow book at times but once you become attached to the characters there is no going back."
- "The description of the plot seems to be very much what I am looking for in a romance novel in this age range. The reviews from both critics and buyers alike also let me know that this should be great for anyone in their teens and young adult years."
- "The best young adult romance books is Letters to the Lost by Brigit Kemmerer. The story is centered around a young woman, Juliet who leaves letters for her deceased mom on her grave. After a stranger finds and responds to her letters, a budding romance is sparked. But to keep the flame going risks must be taken."
