From the popular Tumblr of the same name comes a collection of heart-warming, tear-jerking, and gut-wrenching anonymous letters that people never intended--or didn't have the courage--to send. The Tumblr Dear My Blank--created by 16-year-old Emily Trunko and followed by over 35,000 people--is now a carefully curated gift book with more than 160 anonymous letters covering a range of topics from heartbreak, unrequited love, and loss, to inspiration, self-awareness, and gratitude. Featuring exclusive content not available on Tumblr, these unsent letters are addressed to secret crushes, lost loved ones, boyfriends, siblings, parents, grandparents, and many more. Art and design by Lisa Congdon enhance these messages, making the book a beautiful keepsake for all readers. "A visceral and voyeuristic offering that covers the spectrum from fleeting angst to gut-wrenching grief." -- Kirkus Reviews "Stirring and soulful." -- Booklist Praise for the Tumblr Dear My Blank "An addictive site full of strangers' secrets." -- Cosmopolitan "A safe haven for hundreds of letters that will never be sent." -- Distractify "Tumblr's newest obsession." -- Hello Giggles From the Hardcover edition.
