“Karl, a young man diagnosed with dyslexia, has fallen for Fiorella, a young aspiring writer who insists that if Karl truly loves her, he will write to tell her how he feels. Karl, ashamed of his condition, approaches Fiorella's favorite author and convinces him to write the letters Fiorella desires. The 75-year-old author attempts to put himself in the shoes of a shy, secretive, 18-year-old -- not unlike himself at that age -- and writes his first letter to Fiorella. Is the author doing Karl a favor, or is Karl doing the author a favor? Chambers delivers another award-caliber novel full of teenage angst, love, and wisdom about finding your true passion no matter your age.”
