Publisher's Summary

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.

Good Book

Any additional comments?

This was a good book. It is high school kids. Which I really didn't realize that. But it was still good. Narration is on point.

Fantastic!

I really enjoyed this book, so much so that I'll. I doubt listen again.

I loved the performance just as much as the writing and the emotions were both powerful and almost palpable! Declan and Juliet share such a chemistry.

I sincerely hope for a sequel, although I doubt that will happen. We'll see.

So many feelings! Amazing book!

I have just finished listening to Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer, and I am filled with so many feelings. 
I could have continued to listen to these narrators talk about Juliet and Declan forever.

It didn't take me long to get hooked into this book and they story. Listening to the words of Declan and Juliet, two teens who are over-run with grief, I fell and I fell hard. I listened to this book every chance I got, I just needed to know how their story went.

Juliet and Declan were writing letters to one another regularly, first angry letters, then a sort of friendship developed which flourished into something else. The only issue was, they didn't know who the other was. 
In real life Juliet wasn't the biggest fan of Declan, he scared her a little and made her angry. But the more she got to know him, the more she came to like him. 

Watching these two characters write letters back and forth, and knowing myself who each of them was, I was getting so frustrated that they hadn't figured it out. Once Declan did figure it out, I yelled at him inside my head regularly to just tell her, it was getting so frustrated!
These two characters seemed to be on completely different paths, and they just couldn't find their way to each other, there was one piece of information that could have ruined any chance they had of getting past this friendship, and I was terrified. 

The way Kemmerer brought this book to a close, was just perfect. There was no stone unturned and everything ended just how it should have. There were some painful twist and turns along the way that shocked me, but it made the story that more life-like. It made the point that life is not a fairytale, people do things that shock you and hurt you, but you need to get through it, you need to make your own path.

I absolutely adored this book. The narrators were perfect, and they got the emotion and the message across perfectly. I felt so many different emotions throughout listening to this audiobook, and by the end, I felt as though I had known Juliet and Declan forever, I was so connected to them.
