An assignment in English class turns into something SO much more when Laurel starts writing to Kurt Cobain. She writes to him because he died young - just like her sister. Laurel doesn't hand in her assignment, but she keeps writing about all the emotions swirling through her.
My Thoughts: So many emotions run through this book: pain, grief, guilt, loss, and moving on. I felt horrible for Laurel and all that she went through. I love that she started writing to people because of a school assignment and I enjoyed the various people she shared her feelings with: Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Amelia Earhart, Heath Ledger, Judy Garland, River Phoenix, Jim Morrison, Elizabeth Bishop, Allan Lane, John Keats, and ee cummings. A powerful debut novel that made me cry (at work) and kept me thinking about it for days afterwards.
Cover Thoughts: Great
