The letter

My review 
This book kept me interested and the premise was intriguing. There were some good plot twists and turns, and the author had clearly done her research about certain elements. However, the writing style was difficult at times--very much telling rather than showing. The reader was always told how the characters felt, and some of the characters, such as Chrissie's father and aunt, felt like one-dimensional evil characters. I would have preferred a bit more depth and nuance in the characterisation and storytelling.
