Carter lost his parents at a very young age to drugs and was left to his Uncle Chuck to raise him. However, Uncle Chuck was not the nurturing type. He was hard on Carter. After lending Carter the money to go to school to become a professional chef he made him work off his school debt in his own kitchen at his Italian restaurant. Feeling extreme anger and acting out on it at work, his uncle added the stipulation that he join the Dear Life program or he would add more time to what he already had to work to pay off the debt.
These four strangers would unknowingly bond in the most profound way. They would learn to face their issues rather than runaway, but will they sink or swim? Can they overcome the obstacles that life has thrown their way?
DEAR LIFE is one of those books that while you're reading it, you're emotionally all over the map cursing the author for making you have this emotional breakdown when their books usually are the type to make you laugh after a rough day. Meghan Quinn's ears had to have been red and burning with as much as I was yelling at her in my head. However, by the end of this book, I was loving her that much MORE for showing a different facet of her writing ability. This book made me open my eyes in so many ways and sing her praises to so many people about this book. I feel everyone should have the privilege of experiencing this book!!
The concept behind this story was so unique that it had piqued my interest immediately. Having a different style cover, an intriguing synopsis and being written by an author I have respect for just ticked all of the boxes for me.
We meet 4 people who are at different junctures in their lives and at what they perceive to be "rock bottom". They all join the Dear Life programme whereby they look at life, follow through with some tasks and character building exercises and write to 'Life' - communicate their frustrations, fears and worries to an non-entity but get the words out there nonetheless.
I connected to some characters more than others - this could be from my personal struggles, it could be from the similar personality traits but I resonated with them either way.
The writing confused me at first with the story being told from four different POVs but I quickly became invested in their stories, their tales of woe, their paths to the future that it was easy to switch from POV to POV - especially as they intertwined with one another from the Dear Life initiative.
Family issues, financial worries, life kicking you when you're down and just kicking you full stop are all things we readers face on a daily basis so it was natural to empathise with the characters and want only the best for them.
Meghan's written something for us from the depths of her heart. I won't go into specifics of each character but just know that there is a situation written in here that is so true to life. And the fact that we get her own Dear Life letter at the end of the book was so raw and emotive that I couldn't help but shed a tear.
Four wonderfully deserved stars for something gritty, emotional, tear-jerkingly deep and yet so hopeful that I wished it never had to end.
