Genre: Contemporary fiction
“Sadie recovers from a mental health breakdown as her lively, devoted best friend Kim dies of cancer. Sadie’s recovery forces her to leave her past behind her, including deep hurt inflicted by a self-absorbed mother, and to love the present, including her loving wife and their adopted daughter, the fleeting time she has left with Kim, and of course, Sadie’s own resilient, courageous self. Zelniker’s Letters I’ll Never Send takes an unflinching look at life’s curve balls. The novel is brave, raw, and lovely.”Christy Stillwell, author of The Wolf Tone
