Welcome to my stop on the Frayed blog tour! I am so happy to be a part of this tour. I won’t be sharing a review today, though. I’ll be going into something a little more serious that I hope you all will enjoy. I will be writing a letter to someone I lost. This was very therapeutic and I hope you all enjoy reading my letter.
Dear Shannon Lynn,
You were taken from this world at such a young age and it breaks my heart. You should still be here with that amazing smile upon your face…brightening everyone’s day. I love and miss you dearly. Not a day goes by that I do not think of you. You were like a big sister to me. You were family no matter what, but to me you were more than just my cousin. You became my sister, who I looked up to and I thank you for showing me how to be such a wonderful woman.
I was young when you passed away, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t able to take in everything you taught me. When you passed away you were only 16, way too young, but you were so mature. I adored you and wanted nothing more than to grow up and be just like you. You always made me laugh and your presence would truly light up the whole room.
You will forever be missed. I hope you know that every single one of us miss you dearly. I also hope you know how proud your parents were of you. You were the light of their lives and still are. I feel like this letter doesn’t allow me to say everything I want to because I feel like crying with every letter I type. It doesn’t showcase how truly inspirational you were. I’m not able to evoke all the emotions that I feel. I am not able to fully let it out. I just want you to know you are loved and you are never forgotten.
Every time I see a dragonfly I know it is you watching over me. You were my rock. But, to be honest, you still are. Just because you aren’t here physically doesn’t mean you aren’t here for me. I know you are always watching over me and helping me down the right path. I love you and I thank you for being my hero.
Love, Erica Lyn
About the Book
My therapist tells me I should write you a letter. Like flushing all my thoughts and feelings out of my system and onto paper. I tell her it's a stupid idea.
But here I am, writing a letter to a dead girl. Where do I start? Where did our story begin? From the moment you were born...or died?
I'll start with the moment I found out the truth about you. Your lies and my pain. Because it always begins and ends with you. And that end began when Rafe Lawrence came back to town...
Ava Hale will do anything to find her sister's killer...although she'll wish she hadn't. Because the harder Ava looks, the more secrets she uncovers about Kesley, and the more she begins to think that the girl she called sister was a liar. A sneak. A stranger.
And Kesley's murderer could be much closer than she thought...
A debut novel from Wattpad award-winner Kara Terzis, Frayed is a psychological whodunit that will keep you guessing!
