    was one of my favourite books of 2017, so you can imagine how hyped i was for this. and i had no doubt it would meet my expectations and more. kemmerer has such a unique way of bringing characters to life. although they do tend to have tragic and emotional backgrounds, it just makes reading about their growth all the more relatable and realistic. i really enjoyed this and im keeping my fingers crossed that there will be a book #3!

    And that my review will do no justice to express what I feel towards this book, since words can be inadequate. Or my talent in conveying my emotions into words just lacks.

    I honestly appreciated every single page, every single word Kemmerer wrote. I loved this book for what it is and what it stood for. Going in, I knew it would be emotional and as soon as I read that first chapter, I had a good feeling that I was going to fall in love, and my instinct proved me right. And then some.

    I don’t want to say too much about the story. It’s best going into this knowing as little as possible. But it’s a tale about growth, religion, love whether it is familial or otherwise, friendship, and learning to overcome certain traumas in your life.

    The writing did a phenomenal job at making me empathise with the characters. It’s incredible when a story pulls you in so deep to the point that if the characters are hurting, you begin to hurt. Their pain becomes your pain and their struggle becomes your struggle and it makes me think about how powerful reading is in creating empathy within a reader. I felt that connected to the characters and I was so in love.

    I do recommend reading

    before this, since it is a sequel, but I do believe it can be read as a standalone.

    But whatever you do, I hope you pick it up and fall as hard as I did.

    ————————————————-

    I adored

    and from the first 2 chapters I’ve read so far, I’m expecting it’ll be as emotional.

    I can’t wait.

    Oh, my heart aches...

    I picked up Letters to the Lost on a whim earlier this year and ended up falling in love with the story and all of the characters - it genuinely took me by surprise. One of my favourite characters, and I'm sure most people who have read Letters would agree, had to be Rev. His story was touched upon in Letters and I was so excited when I saw More Than We Can Tell was available on Netgalley and I was given a cop for review.

    I honestly didn't expect this book to have as much of an impact on me as Letters did , but I feel as though I finished this book more of an emotional mess than the first one.

    Rev's back story was heart breaking. With every story that we got told it made my heart ache even more for him and really showed what a great character he is. I really enjoyed Emma's character and how her relationship with her parents developed throughout the book as their family dynamic changed.

    The relationship between Rev and Emma was so well executed - the way they helped each other with their problems was so sweet. Just the right amount of cute without it turning into YA cringe - the chemistry between the two of them was created so well.

    One of the main reasons I loved Letters so much was because of the friendship between Declan and Rev and this book expanded on that so much more. Honestly, I probably dug this friendship more than the relationship between Rev and Emma OR Declan and Juliette. Matthew was a great edition to this book and it would be great to see if he ends up getting his own story.

    If you read Letters, pick this book up immediately.

    If you haven't read Letters, pick it up immediately and then this one immediately afterwards.

    Love, love, love this book.

    The #1 thing I said when I finished

    was: "I want REV'S STORY." (Also I freaking

    what is full name is and why he chose it.) And omg we got Rev's story. Afjdskald. Although it didn't quite live up to LtTL for me, I still liked it a lot!!

    . Rev is the sweetest guy ever and I was like "Who is this angry snarly person???" But switching to the book SOLVED THAT. Holy heck. I loved the audio for LtTL. 😭This was a bit devastating for me that at least the first 150 pages were terrible.

    (That's NOT on the book! It's on my reaction = to the audio.)

    I love how vulnerable and anxious he is in this book. His abusive father is trying to get in contact with him and he hasn't seen this abuser in 10 years. So it's HUGELY stressful and Rev's ashamed of how scared he is. AKA, he hides it. I hate that he did this, especially with how Declan let Rev in on all his issues! And Rev is cutting him out?! But at the same time,

    He has such bad PTSD and always covers his scars and afjkdsla he was so fragile even though he was a badass martial artist and everything.

    . He does a lot of growth in this book too and just...remembering that he's loved. Gaining control over himself again. Letting people in and

    .

    I LOVE REV SO MUCH.

    I'm trying to pull myself up on labelling girls "unlikeable" especially when I LOVE Declan and he's heckin' unlikeable in his book. But Emma was cruel. She had a lot of girl-on-girl snark/hate to her BFF (who literally does nothing but support her) which felt ridiculous? And Emma just sniped at her for NO REASON. But like at the same time I get it??? She was being harassed online (that's frikkin scary ok) and her parents paid 0% attention to her and were totally uprooting her life...and agh. I just...I felt for her. I don't think girls need to be "nice" all the time. But I don't think ANYONE gets to be cruel.

    .

    You don't need to have read Letters to the Lost to appreciate this but AHHHH DEC!!!! He is just as abrasive and loving as always. He's such an angry cinnamon son I love him.

    (Ok so I cried for Rev's book and we got one?!? Pls pls, Brigid Kemmerer??) 😂💛 He's so tragic and his past was heartbreaking and I don't think we really got to explore it enough! (I actually think he needed more closure tbh. But I'll sit here and root for his book so. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

    The ending stressed me tf out. I can't even. Just like smash my heart everywhere omg. Who needs to go for a run? Just read this and have your heart pumping oUT OF YOUR CHEST. *is exhausted*

    Because

    This didn't tear me up like LtTL because I felt the stakes were lower. I just wanted Rev's story line and more of Matthew and JFAKDLS I LOVE DECLAN. But it's still so emotional and talks a lot about having control of your life, of needing people to tell you again and again (and again if you need it) that you are wanted and loved. 💛💛

    about it, so instead, I’ll give you a list of what I liked, and what I didn’t like.

    • We get to spend a lot of time with

    and learn more about his backstory, including some insight into his life as the child of an abusive pastor, and how religion and abuse have shaped him into who he is today.

    offers fantastic insight into the life of a

    as well as the life of any female content creator in the gaming stratosphere, as we see her suffer harassment, unfair treatment, and unrealistic expectations – all of these fueled by the fact that she doesn’t hide her gender identity from the world.

    • With Emma’s harassment comes a painfully realistic view of how men in the gaming community tend to treat women. A misstep isn’t even required from her to warrant lewd and horrific comments from the men playing the game she has created; her existence alone, her “intrusion” into the space these boys have called their own, is plenty to bring these attacks upon her.

    • We also get some “nice guy” portrayals in a character who belligerently convinces himself that an act as simple as basic politeness to a woman means she somehow owes him her time, attention, and money.

    • My favorite part of the book: we get to spend a bit of time with

    as Rev seeks comfort and advice from him. In many books that I’ve read where characters had a cameo in a later story, it felt like the original characters had been changed to somehow fit this new “side character” mold, which is always really jarring, but Brigid Kemmerer doesn’t put Declan through that in the slightest; he’s still 100% who I knew and loved in

    • Am I imagining things, or does Brigid Kemmerer

    ? In

    Juliet had a terrible attitude and lashed out constantly, but at least her behavior was usually

    justifiable; Emma, on the other hand, is absolutely

    to everyone she meets! She spends the entire book casting petty shade at her “best friend”, verbally attacking Rev for no reason whatsoever, and throwing herself a massive

    • The weird love triangle was so unwelcome; despite Rev giving her every reason to like him, Emma has an unhealthy fascination with this online stranger. I could understand if there was ever any actual growth between the two of them, but the bulk of their conversations are just Emma repeatedly whining about her parents while Ethan offers quips like “It could be worse!” and “At least it isn’t as bad as

    parents!”

    • Emma’s attitude towards her best friend constantly revolves around saying rude things about her friend’s YouTube beauty channel, and Emma belittles the struggles that come with that hobby/business ceaselessly, which is not only catty and some serious girl-on-girl hate, but it also re-enforces this “geek” vs. “hot girl” dichotomy crap.

    • Despite a tremendous amount of build-up to Rev’s issues with his father, the ending felt really… bizarre? Lackluster? Anti-climactic?

    • I never found myself rooting for Emma and Rev,

    In fact, I spent most of the book just hoping Rev would run far, far away and find someone who actually respected and cared for him.

    • There’s a male side character who gets picked on with homophobic remarks, but we learn that he isn’t gay; instead, he has suffered horrible sexual assault from multiple men in his life and is being taunted for it. Despite his trauma apparently being widely known at the high school he attends, no real time is spent on getting him the help that he needs or stopping the assailants from continuing to do this to other boys, and the whole thing just felt like this poor child’s rape was being used as a plot device.

    • We get to see Juliet for, like, five seconds, and in that five seconds, she does something kind of rude and intrusive, so, you know… not a great bonding moment – again, it strikes me as odd that she’s so poorly written, considering how great Declan was and the substantial amount of time we get to spend with him in this book.

    As you can see, unfortunately, my dislikes were much more prominent than my likes in this one. I wanted so desperately to love this book that, when I reached the 30% mark or so and realized there was no way it was redeeming itself enough for 5 stars, I honestly considered DNFing it and saving myself some of the disappointment. I’m not saying 3 stars is a terrible rating – there were still things to enjoy about Rev and Emma’s story, for sure! – but when I compare it to

    it just feels like a totally different author wrote this book.

    I updated the summary/description to make it clear that while this book exists in the same universe as

    , it's a standalone title. You do

    need to read

    to understand anything in this book. Letters was Declan and Juliet's story, and MTWCT is Rev and Emma's story. :-)

    I seriously am in love with Rev and the fact that he's getting his own book is healing my broken soul. But I'm also 100% debating hibernation until this is released. Sounds sensible tbh.
