Dear Life Kindle Edition
It's New Years Eve and time for a resolution. Time for decision and self-discovery. After all, isn't that what starting over, in a new year, is all about? Forgiveness. Clean slates? Finding beauty in heartbreak and pain, and finding yourself along the way?
We hope so.
Because we've immersed in the anonymously published Dear Life program, designed to help us step outside of our comfort zones and start anew. Forced to face obstacles and relinquish our demons we'll come together--or fall apart-- to prove our existence:
Hollyn: The perpetually hurt
Daisy: The sheltered and naïve
Jace: The athlete with a heart of gold
Carter: The bitter and pained dreamer
Win big or lose it all, we're at a crossroads in our lives; four strangers meeting in the middle.
Do we have what it takes to use this one chance and start over? Or will we fall apart?

It's the letters, texts & a shoulder to cry on that tugs at your heart strings.
Carter - just loved your letters & Daisy such a naive beautiful soul. Hollyn & Jace both lost something.
This was just so different & so engaging. You feel for the characters as they take a journey to make them whole again.
I'd also like to add that the author blew me away with the epilogue. You never know what life can deal.
The following excerpt struck a chord with me & will stay with me for quite some time:
“life is so much bigger than this, than us, than your friendship with Ethan. It flies by with just a blink of an eye, as if it’s a mere dream you experience rather than an entire lifetime. Don’t waste your time sitting in the corner, hating on the people who’ve done you wrong. Rise up and fix it, because if you don’t you’re going to regret it. You’re going to regret it more than you will ever know.”
Did I have a favourite character? Not really, but a special mention needs to be made of Daisy. She was just gold. Her innocence could have so easily become annoying but it never did! She was wonderful, spreading her special brand of cheer to all who encountered her.
Woven into the fabric of this story was the notion of family, in the most non-traditional sense. At its very heart was the search for yourself and your tribe. Own your life. Make your own family. Accept what life has thrown at you. Cheesy? Not even a little bit. This novel would be perfect for adaptation into a TV series (seriously, I want this as a TV series!!!) with each section as an episode (see, I have it all worked out!).
Special thanks to the author, Meghan Quinn, for her own deeply personal and heartfelt 'Dear Life' letter at the end. Love your work. ♡♡♡
A grandmother who keeps her 21 year old granddaughter so isolated she has never been kissed and dresses like a country bumpkin ,then granny starts reading 50 Shades of Grey? Its out of character and weird!
I'd say skip this one and go and find another Meghan Quinn book to read

This isn't a bad book, by any means; it just didn't quite stick out for me the way I thought it would. It's an absolutely beautiful premise - four people struggling with life for different reasons, coming together and finding solace and hope in one another. Hollyn kept my undivided attention the entire way through, her story bringing me to tears at several moments throughout these pages, but I found it difficult to follow four characters, all with emotional stories, with the same attention. I also thought that some of the conclusions, such as Carter's final confrontation with his uncle, was massively unlikely and a little messy, and the fact that all these storylines wrapped up so perfectly was, in some ways, frustrating.
I get that this is fiction, but life rarely throws you those positive curveballs; not least four people in the same support group.
I also found that Jace and Carter's internal voices were quite feminine and didn't match the exteriors of their characters, which was a little odd to read.
Overall, a wonderful premise, and Meghan Quinn's writing balances the emotional with the entertaining exceptionally well. I just struggled to really get into this one due to its slightly preachy life advice and the neatness of the storylines.
This was just a huge emotional rollercoaster that just kinda ripped my heart apart and slowly put it back together again! I think i felt every emotion you can throughout this story!
So basically this book has 4 main characters Jace Hollyn Carter & Daisy... all completely different people but struggling with life in one way or another... broken all in different ways...so they all join the Dear Life program hoping to start the journey of life again.
Told in POVs of all characters it really give you an insight of them all and whats happening at that exact point which is fantastic as it keeps ypu gripped and turning those pages to see whats next.
This book must have been an emotional time for Meghan to write but i can also see her fabby sense of humour shining through at parts... absolute fab writing and i would recommend to all.
It gutted me and put me back together I cried, laughed and prayed for all 4 of the main characters.
You need to read this book if you haven’t already
