Words in Deep Blue 
by Cath Crowley

Words in Deep Blue explores loss, grief and love experienced by secret pen pals, co-workers and family.  Rachel Sweetie's life changes the day she loses her little brother Cal in a drowning accident. Since his death she fails high school and pushes herself away from most of her friends. Her family thinks that if she moves back to her childhood town she will find herself again.

Moving back home means running into her ex-best friend, Henry. Henry's family owns the local bookshop which features the Letter Library and  allows customers to anonymously write to one another (or leave letters) within books. Before Rachel moved out of her old town she left a letter in a book in the Letter Library confessing her love for Henry. Henry never responded to the letter. 

After she moves back home, Rachel works at the bookshop alongside Henry, who is also dealing with many of his own crises.   Rachel spends her time cataloging the Letter Library where she finds more than letters and writings left in books.
This book is great for teenagers and adults.  Cath Crowley shows us the strength and power in second chances, love, and words.
