The Letter Project is a story about rooftop confessions, a stargazer’s dreams, and a persistent boy who challenges everything a girl thought she knew about love.
Seventeen-year-old Anna McAllister has been in love with the boy next door her entire life. Josh has always loved her, too, but he’s never told her—not face-to-face. The last time Anna saw Josh he said, “There’s something you should know, but it can wait.” That was the summer before Anna’s senior year, and the same summer Josh enlisted in the Marine Corps. When a tragic training accident abruptly ends Josh’s life, all Anna has left of him is a letter that arrives the day after his funeral. For months, all she can think about is his confession to loving her and the imperfect timing of it all.
Anna goes to Upstate New York for a change of scenery. It’s there, while visiting her grandmother, that she meets a new circle of friends, including Liam and his cousin Brad. While both compete for her attention, Anna isn’t interested in either of them—one is too arrogant while the other challenges her every word. And of course, neither one is Josh. But while she tries to keep them both at a safe distance, there’s just something about Liam that keeps pulling her back to him. But nothing is ever as simple as it seems. The Letter Project asks the question: How do you survive a loss so deep, it scars your soul?
