    1. First Thoughts:The instant I read the summary for this book I wanted to read it, it sounded so powerful, so psychological that I definitely wanted to check it out and I'm glad I did. I mean just reading the title of this book it gave you a sense of how this book was going to mess with your mind and your emotions. There were plenty of scenes I have taken to heart and will never forget and believe it or not I think this book taught me a thing or two about myself and others. A definite read I'd rec [...]


    2. I am glad I gave this book a chance!It brought me out of my comfort zone and into the wondrous world of New Adult fiction!I decided to give this book a chance because I was interested in seeing how four lives would intersect. I also enjoyed the excerpts that Meyers provided online.What I love most about this book is how each character is trying to figure out how to figuratively fly from their real life and into a place where they feel completely happy because they are with the people who truly l [...]


    3. "So many people talk about having something to live for. I think they've got it backwards. Maybe we all just need something worth dying for." -- SarahConfession time: I received this book on Saturday, finished it on Tuesday (okay, maybe the early hours of Wednesday morning) and am just now getting around to writing a review. Why, you ask? Exams? Homework? Partly, yes. But mostly because this is a book that stuck with me. The words managed to weasel their way into my brain and dwell there, bringi [...]


    4. Title : Letters from the LedgeSeries : -Author : Lynda MeyersPages : 353Release Date : Jan 11th 2012Publisher : Hallway 11Format : PaperbackSource : ** This book was sent to me by the author in exchange of an honest review**My Opinion :This book was just wow. Just read it. You'll understand.This was an incredible debut you don't want to miss!Letters from the Ledge is, from how I'd describe it, a YA/Adult (well more of a YA) contemporary romance mixed with some 'coming of age' and other pretty in [...]


    5. Lynda Meyers absolutely blew me out of the water with "Letter's from the Ledge".As usual I'm going to be very straight forward and say that I wasn't expecting to like the book much, not at all because I didn't expect it to be well written but it just wasn't in my genre sphere. I was fully prepared to encounter a book that was good but not appealing to my reading interests. I even told my Fiance that very thing. I guarantee you he would be more than ready to tell you how much I talked about the b [...]


    6. Letters From The Ledge begins with a depressing theme as Brandon, one of the four main characters, thinks about flying while standing on the ledge of his window. Lost in his own pain, he is unaware that he has some audience, two people in fact. Sarah is new. She is always the new girl as her family keeps moving from one place to another. Lost in the city with a fear of everyone, she simply lives until she sees Brendan standing on the ledge, as if trying to escape. She sees him every night and jo [...]


    7. Seventeen-year old Brendan Evans has lost his first love, Tess. She committed suicide. Stuck inside his grief, Brendan spends hours every night out on the ledge of his Madison Avenue apartment building writing letters to her. But he’s not alone. Sixteen-year old Sarah watches him from her bedroom window as she writes in her journal. She has lost her younger brother to cancer and feels stifled by fear most of the time. Then there’s Paige and Nate who watch Sarah watching Brendan. Paige was br [...]


    8. This was an unexpectedly enjoyable read. I have to admit that the blurb didn't really bowl me over, and so this book has wallowed on my kindle for a fair while. I just began reading it on a whim, deciding to clear off some of the oldest books on my TBR listI was quickly sucked in. I really enjoyed the multiple perspectives that the third-person narrator moves through. It delivers the story in a nicely balanced way, drawing together the different elements. Each was well defined, and noticeably di [...]


    9. This book was extremely compelling, and I was totally addicted to it! I started and finished it in 2 days. The story line is genius. Lynda worked the characters together in a magical way and it just fit. I would recommend this one to anybody looking for a book that has meaning and depth behind it. It makes you think. The issues that the characters address are hard and real. It's raw. I especially enjoyed the male 'leads' in this story; a friendship that should never have been but was! So good. Y [...]


    10. I really loved this book. The characters are completely vulnerable and flawed. I honestly didn't want this novel to end. I loved the unconventional love stories of the the two couples. The story begins with one character observing two characters without their knowledge. Later, this triangle of three characters' lives become intertwined in unexpected ways. I just loved it. I've never read another story like this with so much danger, love, and pain mixed together in this way. I highly recommend it [...]


    11. WOW!This is a story that first seems to have 3 separate sides but the stories intersect delightfully!We have Sarah who is a girl taking AP Biology. There is Brandon a troubled senior in Sara’s class. Finally there are Nate and Paige a couple who work high stress jobs.Great story coupled with strong writing make for a great book. Definitely will read again!


    12. Going into this book was very sad for me. I have a relative that committed suicide and I could really identify with Brendan. The thoughts that surround you when a tragedy like this happens is filled with “what if’s”. What if I was there, what if I tried to talk to them, what if I would have known before this happened?After reading this book, it gave me a little more sense of what goes through the minds of people who have contemplated hurting themselves. The characters were very realistic a [...]


    13. This book had some very touching and deeply thought-out conversations, but that was about it. The overall writing of the book was a bit amateur and unsophisticated, and it could have used a really good editor.
