Mark has finally gotten the attention of the girl of his dreams. Only, his lame attempts at romance through texts and emails seem to be turning her off. When he gets put in the back of the room in an over-full class at school, he begins to discover old notes giving advice about how to write a great love letter. At first he thinks he’s stumbled on some long-forgotten notes passed in class ages ago, but every time he reads them they seem directed specifically to him. They also appear at the perfect moment each time he needs more advice. It’s like someone is haunting him.
How do the notes keep appearing? Who’s writing them? Why?
And if Mark follows the ghostly writer’s advice, will he win Bethany’s love?
This was such a refreshing read for me. Somewhat like a palette cleanser……. if you will. I like all manner of books but, sometimes it’s really nice to just sit and read a sweet story about a sweet subject. This is a great book for that.
Mark is such a sweet kid. In this age of everything electronic, it’s easy for young people to forget the impact a simple letter written on actual paper….sent through the actual mail can really have.
Honestly, stop and think about it? How much joy would something like that give you? Wouldn’t it bring all the warm fuzzies right to the forefront of your mind and heart? Wouldn’t it make you feel special in a way that an e-mail or a text doesn’t?
I love who the ghost turns out to be. It ties the story together so sweetly that I outwardly sighed. Don’t blame a pregnant lady for tearing up a little here. It hit me right in the feels.
I love this author. She has such a great voice for teenagers. It’s not the easiest voice to portray.
I give this story the full 5 stars. ( I have a feeling this is going to be a trend with this author)
