Staff Reviews

More Than We Can Tell is a companion book to Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer. It is about two teens trying to understand their losses and current struggles and the bond they form. The characters are beautifully written and the story is heart-wrenching. If you liked The Problem With Forever, then this book is for you.

More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer is about Cam who, with the love of his adopted family, has recovered from his abusive, religious father and Emma who feels that neither of her always-fighting parents can understand her. They meet and fall for each other but both still have secrets and soon, one will be fighting for his/her life. While this is a very character-driven novel, the plot will keep you turning pages. Read if you like Nicola Yoon or Chris Crutcher.

— Toni, High School Librarian in Littleton, CO


With loving adoptive parents by his side, Rev Fletcher has managed to keep the demons of his past at bay. . . until he gets a letter from his abusive father and the trauma of his childhood comes hurtling back.

Emma Blue's parents are constantly fighting, and her only escape is the computer game she built from scratch. But when a cruel online troll's harassment escalates, she not only loses confidence but starts to fear for her safety.

When Rev and Emma meet, they're both longing to lift the burden of their secrets. They connect instantly and deeply, promising to help each other no matter what. But soon Rev and Emma's secrets threaten to crush them, and they'll need more than a promise to find their way out.

From the author of Letters to the Lost comes a new compulsively readable story for fans of Nicola Yoon.
