Letter to My Daughter was a quick read and begins with a 15-year old who had an argument with her mother, words were spoken, the mother slapped her, and she stormed out. Which is pretty typical teen behavior now a days. Then the rest of the book is a letter the mother writes to her daughter explaining how she always said things would be different with her and her daughter than they had been for her and her mother and how sometimes the best of intentions still dont make that so. Then she tells about her own life at 15.
This was an okay read and has loads of great things going for it. I felt it was a wonderful debut novel and so cool to be written from a man's point of view but would of liked to have had more in the story about Liz, the runaway. Maybe that will be picked up in a later novel. I would definately read more from this author!
