Love Letters to the Dead Film Adaptation!!!!

Love Letters to the Dead
Ava Dellaira's critically-acclaimed debut YA novel, Love Letters to the Dead (Farrar, Straus and Giroux) has been optioned for film by Fox 2000 and Temple Hill! The book was published April 2014 and follows the story of Laurel, a teenager who is given an assignment by her English teacher: write a letter to a dead person. She chooses to write to Kurt Cobain, who was around the same age as her sister was when she died. But Laurel doesn't stop there. She goes on to write a series of letters to a motley crew of deceased actors, musicians, and icons, through which bits and pieces of her past are revealed.

The producers attached to the project, Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen, have been involved with various YA book-to-film adaptations, including The Twilight Saga, The Maze Runner and, most recently, John Green's The Fault in Our Stars. Ava Dellaira will be writing the script.
