From the popular Tumblr of the same name comes a collection of heart-warming, tear-jerking, and gut-wrenching anonymous letters that people never intended--or didn't have the courage--to send.
 
The Tumblr Dear My Blank--created by 16-year-old Emily Trunko and followed by over 35,000 people--is now a carefully curated gift book with more than 160 anonymous letters covering a range of topics from heartbreak, unrequited love, and loss, to inspiration, self-awareness, and gratitude.
 
Featuring exclusive content not available on Tumblr, these unsent letters are addressed to secret crushes, lost loved ones, boyfriends, siblings, parents, grandparents, and many more.
 
Art and design by Lisa Congdon enhance these messages, making the book a beautiful keepsake for all readers.

A truly human collection of letters that have never been sent. I dare you to read and not have a single letter bring up a personal experience and make you feel like you should write your own letter just to let some of it go.

This book is one of the most fantastic anthologies I've ever read. The message is clear--you are not alone! Everything you're going through, there is someone else out there going through the same thing, and you'll probably find their letter about it in this book.
