«A beautiful and heartfelt novel about love and loss.
This book breathes with life.»
— Jamieson Wolf, best-selling author of Little Yellow Magnet

After spending eight months in the psych hospital for attempted suicide, Sadie still isn't sure if she's ready to confront her demons, specifically the death of her infant son.

Much has changed in the last eight months. Sadie's close friend Kim has been diagnosed with leukemia for a third time and is undergoing chemotherapy. She is speaking with her mother again after two years. Her daughter has started kindergarten, and isn't entirely sure how to react to Sadie coming home. On top of mourning, Sadie has to find the strength to deal with the ups and downs of her regular life, aided in part by her wife, friends, and therapist.

“Sadie recovers from a mental health breakdown as her lively, devoted best friend Kim dies of cancer. Sadie's recovery forces her to leave her past behind her, including deep hurt inflicted by a self-absorbed mother, and to love the present, including her loving wife and their adopted daughter, the fleeting time she has left with Kim, and of course, Sadie's own resilient, courageous self. Zelniker's Letters I'll Never Send takes an unflinching look at life's curve balls. The novel is brave, raw, and lovely.”
— Christy Stillwell, author of The Wolf Tone

“A moving story about an adopted, queer girl coming to terms with her mental illness as her best friend battles cancer. Zelniker addresses mortality, family, friendship, and personal growth with ease. A smooth read, both for teens and adults.”
— Raki Kopernik, author of The Things You Left
