I bought this book on a whim and I didn't know what to expect, and it was such a pleasant surprise for me that I loved each moment of it .. it was an amazing performance in every way, the writing style, the characters, the story .. when you can't find a path, make it .. I just love this empowering stories, the narration was equally good and they were suitable for thier characters, most recommended I love it so much

The performances were captivating and I couldn't stop listening. This book had so many twists it kept me guessing to the end.
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.
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.
A great book for young adults year 10 upward nothing inappropriate but real life issues.
