Meet The Author

When Mattie Gokey is given a bundle of letters to burn by Grace Brown, she fully intends to do so. But when Grace is found drowned the next day, Mattie finds that it is not as easy to get rid of those letters as she had thought. And, as she reads, a riveting story emerges – not only revealing Grace’s secrets but also Mattie’s hopes and ambitions for the future and her relationships with her friends and family.

An astonishing and heartbreaking novel about a young girl’s coming-of-age and the murder that rocked turn-of-the-century America by the winner of The Carnegie Medal 2003, Jennifer Donnelly.
