Because You'll Never Meet Me, by Leah Thomas

From my Kirkus column about Because You'll Never Meet Me:

The best epistolary novels feature voices that are immediately distinct and vivid and compelling, and on that front, Leah Thomas’ Because You’ll Never Meet Me entirely delivers. Even from their first letters, I was invested in the boys—both separately and as a unit—I was curious about them, and I wanted to see them happy. Once trust is established, their roles reverse a few times—they act as each other’s anchors, one will continue writing into the seeming void while the other works through depression or grief or anger—and that constantly changing dynamic makes their friendship one of the most balanced, power-wise, that I’ve seen in a long time.
