CARTAS DE AMOR A LOS MUERTOS

-Ava Dellaira

 

“Tal vez podamos dejar de ser tan indefensos si tan solo lográramos hallar las palabras justas para expresar lo que sentimos”

 

Sinopsis del libro

Todo comienza con un trabajo para la clase de Literatura: escribir una carta a una persona muerta.

Laurel decide escribirle a Kurt Cobain, quien murió joven como May, su hermana. Luego de la primera carta, ya no puede detenerse. Escribirá otras a Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Jim Morrison y Heath Ledger, entre otros personajes famosos. Sin embargo, no le entrega ninguna a su profesora.

La tarea permanece oculta… como tantas cosas de su vida.

Laurel escribe sobre lo que le pasa: cómo se siente empezar en otra escuela, lo difícil que es forjar nuevas amistades, cómo es el primer amor o vivir con padres separados y, lo más importante, escribe sobre la muerte de May. De esta manera, comienza a relacionar las cosas que compartió con su hermana y sus experiencias personales, con las vidas y muertes de estos íconos. Cuando escriba la verdad sobre lo que ocurrió, podrá aceptar la muerte de May y solo así logrará verla y recordarla como la persona que siempre fue: adorable, asombrosa e… imperfecta.

Crecer es doloroso. Muchas veces hay un mundo secreto que tarde o temprano hay que enfrentar. Y se enfrenta mejor con la verdad y con ayuda.

Un libro para leer con el alma, para compartir con quienes de verdad amamos y queremos cuidar.

“Sencillamente, amé este libro. Me impactó cada página por la profundidad de las emociones que transmite su prosa vibrante,. Este es el anuncio de una voz literaria nueva y valiente”.–Stephen Chbosky, autor de “Las ventajas de ser invisible”

 

Mi reseña 🙂

 

Recuerdo que este libro era uno de los que más deseaba leer mientras estaba en la universidad, pero hasta hace poco pude leerlo y me agarró por sorpresa la intensidad de su contenido.

Es una novela juvenil (sugerida para mayores de 16 años) escrita en forma de misivas por Laurel (casi como un diario), cartas que empezaron como una tarea en la clase de literatura dirigida a una persona muerta y en la que nuestra protagonista encontró el medio perfecto para canalizar sus emociones y pensamientos, siendo así una herramienta para ponerlos en su lugar, desahogarse y comprenderse mejor a sí misma, a quienes le rodean y los últimos difíciles acontecimientos que le han dejado marcada.

Laurel está pasando por una etapa muy difícil: el reciente y misterioso fallecimiento de su hermana mayor, May, del que ella fue única testigo pero se resiste a compartir la verdad, el cambio de escuela en el intento desesperado de olvidar una vida antes de  May, además de que no soporta que la miren con lastima y estén preguntando constantemente por un tema del que ella no está lista para hablar.

Estas cartas van dirigidas a sus artistas favoritos, como Kurt Cobain (que también era el favorito de su hermana) Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison y Heath Ledger, y también a Amelia Earhart, una aviadora a quien ella admiraba mucho y al escribirle le inspira. Estos destinatarios comparten en común ciertas características, como que murieron jóvenes, algunos tuvieron una vida de excesos o andaban con cierta desorientación en la vida, creo que sentía empatía hacia ellos y, de alguna forma, ella pensaba que solamente ellos podrían entenderla (a diferencia de los vivos), sin la presión de expresar más de lo que ella deseara o pudiera encontrando su propio ritmo y, por consiguiente, su propia voz.

Laurel le da sentido a su pérdida a través de lo que escribe, le ayuda a poner en orden sus pensamientos, sus sentimientos y sus recuerdos. Mediante las cartas, Laurel reconoce la verdad ante sí misma, el enojo que siente en su interior pero se niega a aceptar e intenta perdonarse a sí misma. Me gustaron mucho los pensamientos de Laurel, su manera de mantener una especie de relación con personas que ya murieron, y la forma en que rescata las palabras que ellos pronunciaron y que permanecen vivas, lo que enseñaron a los demás con su ejemplo, el llegar incluso a morir por perseguir un sueño y cómo siguen inspirando a muchas personas aún después de haber trascendido.

 Es una historia que toca temas fuertes y delicados como el alcohol, las drogas, el abuso sexual, el suicidio, el sufrimiento, la depresión, homofobia,  el duelo y lo difícil que es  a veces encontrar el sentido de nuestra vida cuando transitamos por ese doloroso camino.

Considero que es un libro que resalta la importancia de la salud mental y de expresar nuestras emociones, pone en relieve las alarmantes consecuencias que puede tener el no contar con el apoyo familiar, social y profesional adecuado cuando tenemos problemas emocionales porque se pueden salir de nuestras manos. También creo que es un libro que puede sensibilizarnos y hacernos voltear a ver al amigo o conocido que de repente se comporta distinto, o que pierde el interés por lo que antes le apasionaba…

Aunque es un libro destinado al público juvenil, es una lectura que más de un adulto disfrutará también. Estos libros son crudos, pero necesarios

    A free bet is something that you can earn when you sign up for a betting account with a reputable bookmaker. It’s generally the case that customers need to make a first deposit and then place a qualifying bet at certain odds, with the betting site then crediting your account with a free bet once this first bet has been settled. So the bet that you earn is a freebie, but you have spend money in the form of a deposit to earn it. Let’s get one thing straight before you opt for that “free bet” or “bonus bet” option. There are two types of these bonuses: free bets (also known as bonus bets by some), and risk-free bets (also known as no sweat bets).

Der Aufstieg von Bitcoin erreichte 2017 einen Höhepunkt, als der Preis fast 20.000 US-Dollar erreichte. Dieser Anstieg war teilweise auf das wachsende Interesse von institutionellen Investoren zurückzuführen. Die Einführung von Bitcoin-Futures an traditionellen Finanzmärkten markierte einen entscheidenden Schritt hin zur Institutionalisierung der Währung. Nach dem Vorbild erfolgreicher Anleger, die mit dem Aufstieg von Bitcoin und anderen Kryptowährungen reich geworden sind, wollen auch viele Neueinsteiger versuchen, Geld zu verdienen. Der Kryptomarkt ist jedoch so volatil, dass er sich in nur wenigen Tagen um 50-70 % verändern kann. Daher ist es wichtig zu verstehen, welche Faktoren den Kryptowährungskursen zugrunde liegen und wie sie zur Vorhersage von Kursbewegungen genutzt werden können.

    Die News York Times spricht von einem „Der Moment der Panik“, der dem bisherigen schlimmsten Rückschlag für Kryptowährungen gleichkomme, als Bitcoin im Jahr 2018 um 80 Prozent einbrach. Doch dieses Mal sei vieles anders: Mehr Menschen und Institutionen seien nun von den fallenden Preisen betroffen. Historisch Nach einem ereignislosen Jahr 2012 gewann der die Kryptowährung im Jahr 2013 etwas an Schwung und erreichte im April 230 $. Im Dezember kletterte der Preis auf 1.237,55 $, fiel aber schon nach wenigen Tagen auf 687,02 $. Im Jahr 2014 sank der Preis weiter, und Anfang 2015 lag er bei 315,21 $. Sie haben ein PUR-Abo?

That’s important since understanding the different rules is necessary to understand the strategies that will follow. Evolution announced a collaboration with Caesars Digital in Pennsylvania to bring Evolution’s live casino games to Tropicana Online Casino and Caesars Sportsbook and Casino. The partnership will also bring more slot titles to Tropicana and Caesars from Evolution subsidiaries, including NetEnt and Red Tiger. Many online casinos deal single zero roulette. When it is available, there is no reason to play double zero roulette. Both are often offered by legal online casinos. The minimum bets are usually the same or close, so single zero roulette is always the right choice.
