Lottie Reaves is not a risk taker. But she’s about to take a leap into the unknown…
When Lottie's beloved Aunt Helen dies of cancer, it upends her careful, quiet life.
Aunt Helen wasn’t a typical aunt. She was the world-famous author of the bestselling Alvin Hatter series. She knew a thing or two about the magic of writing, and how words have the power to make you see things differently.
In her will, Aunt Helen leaves Lottie a series of letters—each containing mysterious instructions. As Lottie sets about following them, she realizes they’re meant to make her take a risk, and, for once in her life, really live. But when the letters reveal an extraordinary secret about her aunt’s past—and the inspiration for the Alvin Hatter series—Lottie finds herself faced with an impossible choice, one that will force her to confront her greatest fears once and for all.
Part mysterious adventure, part love letter to the power of books, this is a brilliantly woven novel about loving, reading, writing, grieving, and finding the strength to take a leap.

do i recommend reading this book: nope
honestly, this books description sounded pretty interesting and i thought i would like it a lot because i always wanted to be an adventurous person who goes out at 2 am and does crazy things. i also read a lot of wattpad stories and im a very big fan of cliches (but i also LOVE when a book/movie is everything except a cliche). somehow this book was neither. i thought that this book would be about taking so many risks with incredible new people and making so many crazy adventurous life changing experiences. however, it was not. i had to force myself to pick up the book and read it. im not gonna lie and say the entire book was boring because i didnt finish it. i just couldnt bring myself to finish it, i get bored easily so i was not about to finish that book. im not saying to not try it though, you may like it. this is just my opinion on the book. i expected crazy adventures that make me think "wow". but instead it was just normal everyday things. if you get bored easily, like i do, do not read this book.

on the description for this book on, it says its perfect for fans of jennifer niven, thats what caught my eye. i loved 'all the bright places'. ill make a review for that book another time, but for now, if you were looking for a book recommendation then i suggest all the bright places.
