Note: I received an ARC from WordSmith Publicity in exchange for an unbiased review.
I’m going to be honest. This book was not what I was expecting. All of the Meghan Quinn books I’ve read have been humorous contemporary romances. Dear Life was something completely different. Different wasn’t bad, though. Different was just different…and very, very good.
Dear Life is the story of four young adults. Hollyn, Jace, Daisy and Carter have all come to a crossroads in their lives. Each is dealing with something that disheartens them. All are on different paths until they are pushed together by Dear Life, a program that aims to help them surpass their demons and embrace life. Through group sessions, letters and newly cemented friendship, the four set about trying to leave their pasts behind.
The way Dear Life was set up was genius. It was told in four part first person narration and included letters each person wrote for the Dear Life program. Each of the four perspectives brought so much to the story. I loved getting to know each character and learning how their relationships overlapped. Jace was my favorite character. I could have read an entire book about him and his life. Hollyn was a close second. For some reason, their stories resonated most with me. I liked Daisy and Carter, too. I was just really pulled to Jace and Hollyn’s stories.
Dear Life was so incredibly touching. It was a novel about healing from the things life throws at you. It was beautifully written. There were so many moments that brought tears to my eyes. This book broke my heart in so many ways, but it also put it right back together. I loved this book so much! I can’t recommend it enough.
