Dead Letters by Caite Dolan-Leach



Ava tried to escape her family in Paris but her twin sister Zelda’s death brings her back to her childhood home and memories. Zelda has left behind a complicated game for Ava to play and it is entirely possible that Zelda is not really dead.

I was surprised that I liked this but I did. All the characters are dysfunctional and alcoholics. No one is innocent here. And yet there are pieces of Zelda and Ava that I still managed to sympathize with. I also couldn’t look away from all the drama unfolding.

So I recommend this to those who like character driven stories where the characters are not very likable.
