Dear Mr. S. Harris, Ignore the blob of red in the top left corner. It's jam, not blood, though I don't think I need to tell you the difference. It wasn't your wife's jam the police found on your shoe. . . .

Zoe has an unconventional pen pal-Mr. Stuart Harris, a Texas Death Row inmate and convicted murderer. But then again, Zoe has an unconventional story to tell. A story about how she fell for two boys, betrayed one of them, and killed the other.

Hidden away in her backyard shed in the middle of the night with a jam sandwich in one hand and a pen in the other, Zoe gives a voice to her heart and her fears after months of silence. Mr. Harris may never respond to Zoe's letters, but at least somebody will know her story-somebody who knows what it's like to kill a person you love. Only through her unusual confession can Zoe hope to atone for her mistakes that have torn lives apart, and work to put her own life back together again.
 
Rising literary star Annabel Pitcher pens a captivating second novel, rich with her distinctive balance between humor and heart. Annabel explores the themes of first love, guilt, and grief, introducing a character with a witty voice and true emotional resonance.

Staff Review:
Gritty, quirky and powerful. Pitcher's characters are credible and real. The plot clevely constructed to pull readers into the psyche of a teenager. Written in a series of letters, we learn why Zoe felt the need to write to Stuart, a Texan Death Row inmate, of whom she felt like a kindred spirit. She shares with him - with us - the identity of who died, how she's coping with the loss, her other relationships, her problems at school.

I enjoyed it and I hated it. Zoe's indecisiveness makes her character believable, albeit annoying at times. Overall, I thought it was a good book.
