ABOUT RETURN TO SENDER (Letters to Nowhere Volume 2)

If only summer could last forever…

Karen and Jordan might be out in the open with their relationship, but that doesn't make it any easier for them to face events looming in the future. Like Jordan leaving for college halfway across the country. Or Karen's win at a big international gymnastics competition setting the bar high for her future and adding pressure like she's never experienced before.

But when Nina Jones (aka-USA Gymnastics Dictator), makes plans for Karen and teammate Stevie to train at a gymnastics camp for a month—the same camp where Jordan coaches—romantic summer interludes replace their fears of being apart. But both Jordan and Karen know that when fall comes, some very tough decisions will have to be made, but for now it’s stolen kisses, racing hearts, and whispered words…

    After finishing Letters to Nowhere, I couldn¿t wait to continue

    After finishing Letters to Nowhere, I couldn’t wait to continue Karen and Jordan’s story and picked up all three sequels. The first is Return to Sender and is really only a third of the story. The biggest difference in this book is the addition of Jordan’s point of view which we get starting in chapter 2. It’s refreshing to read a teen male POV that is not angry, swearing every other thought, or always trying to get laid. He may be one of the most authentic teen male characters I’ve read. Certainly the most authentic recently. He’s just as unsure about his future as Karen is about hers, even though he’s been accepted to Stanford.

    With Jordan heading off to Stanford in the fall and with plans to work at a gymnastics camp over the summer, tension and uncertainty increase. At least until Karen discovers she’ll be spending the summer training at the very same camp where Jordan will be working.

    Karen struggles more with gymnastics in this go round, but I think that’s understandable given her recent success. The pressure mounts and she’s having a hard time juggling her ongoing grief, indecision about her future, expectations about her athletic performance, and an increasingly serious relationship with Jordan that is becoming both more emotional as well as more physical.

    Plot
    Because this is only the first of three parts, it’s hard to really distill the plot in this first third. But there are some decisions made and Karen confronts her grief head on, so I feel like it’s really setting up well for the next two books. The emotional punch that Julie Cross delivers is powerful. I don’t cry much when I read books, but I must admit to wiping a few tears with this installment. They were the good, beautiful, bittersweet tears, though, not the rip my soul out and stomp on it kind.

    World Building
    The world of gymnastics is still front and center and still solid as a rock.

    Characters
    Karen and Jordan are both growing and we see some of that growth developing already. Jordan’s camp roommate, TJ, is a welcome addition. I have a feeling he’s really going to shake things up, as is Liberty, Jordan’s girlfriend from the previous summer.

    Top Five Things I Love About  Return to Sender
    1. Jaren – Still cute as ever.
    2. Karen’s Uncertainty – I love that she’s still struggling with her future. Even though things worked out so well at the end of Letters to Nowhere, the fact that she’s still sorting it all out makes her more three-dimensional.
    3. Karen and Stevie – The complex nature of their friendship is so real. It’s neither perfectly chummy nor antagonistic. It is a friendship that is forged on a common interest, driven by competition, and sustained by genuine respect.
    4. TJ – There is so much more to TJ than meets the eye and I can’t wait to find out what it is.
    5. The Big Emotional Scene – I won’t spoil what it is, but it has been building for some time and it was just the release the story and Karen needed.

    Bottom Line
    Return to Sender is a worthy follow up to Letters to Nowhere. It’s the first of three parts that sets the stage for the remaining two installments, but still manages to provide a satisfying read.

    I really enjoyed Letters to Nowhere, the first in this series by

    I really enjoyed Letters to Nowhere, the first in this series by Julie Cross. When I heard that the following installments were to be novellas in a serialized format, I was excited because I can fit shorter books in much easier than longer books. I was able to read this in just a couple of hours and I enjoyed it just as much as the first!

    This picked up pretty close to when the first one ended. Jordan is sick again (which has me worried), but is still there for Karen and is still going to Stanford in the fall. A twist of fate means they are able to be at the same camp during the summer so they can finally see each other again. They haven't been able to see each other very much in the few weeks between books.

    Karen is still dealing with her parent's death, but has definitely made progress. It was nice to see her grandmother finally make an appearance and I'm curious to see how that will play out in the future. Jordan's dad wasn't involved as much in this story as the first, but he is still a strong presence in both of their lives.

    I do wish there was more to this installment, but I enjoyed what it contained. It seemed like it was leading up to a lot of potential drama in the following installment. I'm curious to see where their paths take them and what is going to happen for Jordan and Karen. My predictions-Jordan has some sort of really bad illness and Karen is going to injure herself. Hopefully I'm wrong on both counts and luckily enough I have the third ready to read (once I get a chance)!
