Dear Zoe by Philip Beard is a novel told as a series of letters or journal entries from fifteen-year-old Tess to her little sister Zoe as a way of sorting through her own mix of strange sensations and emotions in the wake of losing Zoe on September 11, 2001. The concept allows for some insightful and universal comments on grief, but the human story of Tess and her family members is even more touching in their visceral need to make some sense of their own pain apart from all others who suffered a loss on that day. This novel of grief, adolescence, healing, and hope never hits a wrong note. It’s a powerful and touching read.
