Love Letters to the Dead - Ava Dellaira

“Dear Kurt Cobain, Mrs. Buster gave us our first assignment in English today, to write a letter to a dead person.” Thus opens Ava Dellaira’s haunting epistolary debut novel, Love Letters to the Dead (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, $17.99). Without turning in the assignment, Laurel continues to write letters to dead personalities, from Judy Garland to Allan “Rocky” Lane, Amy Winehouse, and John Keats. These letters to others, who had their own burdens and sadnesses, become her method for acknowledging what has happened to her and understanding the sudden death of her older sister, May. Ages 15-18.
