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.
This collection of anonymous letters from people all over the globe deal with unrequited love, betrayal, and grief.
