    It begins as an assignment for English class: Write a letter to a dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain because her sister, May, loved him. And he died young, just like May. Soon, Laurel has a notebook full of letters to the dead - to people like Janis Joplin, Heath Ledger, Amelia Earhart, and Amy Winehouse - though she never gives a single one of them to her teacher. She writes about starting high school, navigating the choppy waters of new friendships, learning to live with her splintering family, falling in love for the first time, and, most important, trying to grieve for May.

    Aufwühlend, erschütternd, voller Hoffnung! Es beginnt mit einem Brief. Laurel soll für ihren Englischunterricht an eine verstorbene Persönlichkeit schreiben. Sie wählt Kurt Cobain, den Lieblingssänger ihrer Schwester May, die ebenfalls viel zu früh starb. Aus dem ersten Brief wird eine lange Unterhaltung mit toten Berühmtheiten. Doch erst, als Laurel die Wahrheit über sich und ihre Schwester May offenbart, findet sie den Weg zurück ins Leben und kann einen letzten Brief an May schreiben.
