A candid narrative that could bring solace and relief to those struggling with grief.
By Madison Letts ‧ RELEASE DATE: April 21, 2023
In her debut memoir, Letts recounts the story of her relationship with her boyfriend, who passed away. When she was 21, she met him at a party and felt an instant connection. She was told he had brain cancer, but this did not deter her. She wanted to be with someone who understood the fragility of life. The book is dedicated to Knox and her beloved cousin Dalton, who died of a fentanyl overdose. Letts begins her memoir on the day Knox died and alternates between her life before and after him. Her memoir stands out from others on the same subject due to her earnestness. She wants readers to feel what she feels and know what she knows. She is open and vulnerable, to the point that the reader almost feels like an intruder. For example, when she was invited into Knox’s hospital room to say goodbye, she saw that he was still Knox.
