This is a love story. It's the story of a second-hand bookshop called Howling Books where people leave letters to strangers, or those they love, or want to love, between the pages of books in the Letter Library.

Henry Jones and Rachel Sweetie are best friends. Or they were. Before Rachel moved away to the sea. Now, she's back, grieving for her brother Cal who drowned in the sea that he loved.

Rachel loves Henry. Henry loves Amy. Amy loves Amy but is happy for Henry to love her too.

This is a book about books. About the power of literature to cradle our past, present and future selves. It's about how we leave ourselves behind when we die. How we leave our histories in the things we love - like books.

Cath Crowley's Graffiti Moon will always and forever be one of my most favorite contemporary YAs ever, is why I am so ecstatic when I found out that she has a new book coming out on August. And not only that, because the premise sounds wonderful too!


  1. Hmmm...sounds like this one is going to be good. Hope you enjoy it!

    Renee My WOW

  2. I've added this to my TBR list. Sounds like a good one. Enjoy!

  3. This sounds so completely awesome I can't believe I have to wait until the end of August for it! I've heard of Graffiti Moon but it hasn't showed up at my library yet. Maybe it's time to try the magic of Inter Library Loans!

  4. I loved Graffiti Moon too. I haven't heard of this one but I like the sound of the plot. I'd go to Howling Books if it existed :)

  5. Just the concept of book shops and being able to leave letters for strangers to find has me hooked! This book sounds so amazing, and I'm not even a huge contemporary reader!! Thanks for sharing Chel xx


Internet high-five for every comment!
