Letters From the Inside
"Dear Tracey, I don't know why I'm answering your ad, to be honest. It's not like I'm into pen pals, but it's a boring Sunday here, everyone's out, and I thought it'd be something different. . ."
"Dear Mandy, Thanks for writing. You write so well, much better than me. I put the ad in for a joke, like a dare, and yours was the only good answer. . ."
Two teenage girls. An innocent beginning to friendship. Two complete strangers who get to know each other a little better each time a letter is written and answered. Mandy has a dog with no name, an older sister, a creepy brother, and some boy problems. Tracey has a horse, two dogs and a cat, an older sister and brother, and a great boyfriend. They both have hopes and fears. . . and secrets.
A raw book with a great story
A girl replies to a pen pal ad in a magazine. They soon become friends, and keep delving a little bit more into each other's lives. But soon enough one of the girls realises that all she has been delving in, are lies.
But perhaps the truth is much more worth slipping into?
The way John Marsden writes, just as if he was the girls himself. The end had my twisting my head away from the page, not really wanting to read the end.
It was very wonderful though, and I would reccommmen it in a moment, if given the chance.
I'm not game to compare it to any other book but, if you're thirsting a bit of drama, angst, and real life, then go ahead and pick it up!
A prison cell, would obviously be the best place to read it, but your bedroom would do just fine. Near a post or mailbox, would be great too.
This is a tricky question, as I don't usually read and listen to music as the lyrics interrupt my concentration, but Hospice by The Antlers would be good for the second half of the book. Something like Lily Allen's Alright, Still, would be awesome for the first.
two girls who begin to write to each other and in doing so begin a strange and wonderful friendship.
