From the International Bestselling Author of the Tempest series
A Mature YA contemporary set in the tough world of Elite Gymnastics.
Seventeen year old Karen Campbell has just lost both her parents in a tragic car accident. Grief stricken and alone, her gymnastics coach opens his home to Karen, providing her a place to live while she continues to train, working toward a spot on the world championship team.
Coach Bentley’s only child, seventeen year old Jordan is good-looking and charming enough to scare away a girl like Karen—someone who has spent ten times more hours on balance beams and uneven bars than talking or even thinking about boys. But the two teens share a special connection almost immediately. It turns out Jordan has a tragic past of his own, grief buried for years.
As Karen’s gymnastics career soars, her nightmares and visions of the horrible accident grow in strength. She can only avoid facing her grief for so long before it begins to surface and ultimately spin out of control in a very dangerous way. Can discovering love and lust (simultaneously) help with the grieving process or will it only provide a temporary distraction while waiting for reality to hit full force.
If you know me, then you know that I am a huge Julie Cross fan.
Letters to Nowhere is one of the best contemporary books I have read in awhile. It is touching, heart wrenching, and powerful.You will fall in love with Karen and Jordan.They both have their flaws, their ups and their downs, but it works for them.The letters you read throughout the book are the perfect touch. I just loved seeing Karen’s growth throughout the book, and Jordan’s as well.
I also really enjoyed the gymnastics aspect of the story. It has been awhile since I’ve been in the gym, but it took me back to those days and also introduced me to a few news things as well. I love when I can connect to a book!
If you’ve enjoyed her Tempest series, you will most certainly enjoy reading Letters to Nowhere. It’s just THAT kind of read. You won’t want it to end. I know I didn’t.
