It is hard to solve or go through with your own problems without making mistakes but it is harder to understand what others around you are going through without com
pletely breaking down and making the wrong choices.
This story not only highlights what every teen faces such as trust issues, stress, depression, bullying and first love.
This book is one that helps people see life in a different perspective and helps them to go through with some of the challanges one might be facing.
It is an amazing read.

This story was in my opinion slightly less well constructed than the first installment, especially Emma's relationship with her parents, but still has what I loved most about "Letters to the lost": the feelings and thoughts of the characters are described in a way that makes the connection easily; with very accurate words but not exaggerations. It's very empathic. I also love the friendships in this book, including the way Texas the dog make friends with everybody... it's heartwarming. Another important note, I personally appreciate a book that can discuss very heavy and difficult subject without becoming too graphic or violent.
Rev Fletcher, one of the most heartbreaking characters I have ever read. The depth of his character was wonderful to read, he leapt off the page and into my heart. His story was gut wrenchingly sad, and unfortunately so believable. I had no idea this was a second book, so I hadn't met Rev before, and I think thats what made the story all the more enjoyable. His friendship with Declan was precious, and by far the highlight of the book for me. Declan was so kind and thoughtful, even when faced with his own crap. I loved the two of them together.
Emma is the reason why I couldn't give this a full 5 stars. She was quite hard to click with because her selfish problems were just so insignificant in the grand scheme of things, and she was acting as though a few horrible, rude comments online from a stranger was on par with horrendous child abuse... That being said, I did eventually start to enjoy her own story arc, (view spoiler)
I loved the addition of Matt, Rev's foster brother, and the relationship that developed slowly between the two boys, was wonderful to read. I can't recommend this one enough, it was such a good mix of heartbreaking and warming! I now need to bump book one up my TBR!!
As someone who has dealt with being “bullied” online and got send hateful and disgusting messages I deeply connected with Emma and her story! It was absolutely captivating and stunning and I am madly in love with the way Brigid writes her stories! I would highly recommend this book to everyone who loves YA-novels or just great books with great plots in general! This gets 5 Starts (I would give it more if I could!). Can’t wait for more of her work!
