Love Letters to the Dead
It begins as an assignment for English class, write a letter to a dead person any dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain. He died young and so did Laurel's sister May, so maybe he'll understand a bit of what Laurel is going through. Soon Laurel is writing letters to lots of dead people: Janis Joplin, Heath Ledger, River Phoenix, Amelia Earhart. It's like she can't stop. And she'd certainly never dream of handing them in to her teacher.
