Extraordinary circumstances stamp the course of an otherwise ordinary life: a child braves cancer. A nun fights against discrimination. A drug addict volunteers for the community. An immigrant learns to speak English through reading the newspaper. These are the kinds of people who inspire Morissa Schwartz in Notes Never Sent.
Morissa was not supposed to be born. Three specialists told her mother that she could not have a child. Her parents spelled her name with an 'o' instead of an 'a' like everyone else. Now, she is the only person in the world with that name." This just the beginning of Morissa's quest to challenge expectations.
Notes Never Sent takes place around the extraordinary life of Morissa, a twenty-one year old Jersian who is a Guinness World Record breaker, a singer on MTV, and a writer for Entertainment Weekly's Community. However, life was never easy for Morissa from losing loved ones to braving illness.
Notes Never Sent follows Morissa from childhood through young adulthood in a series of letters and anecdotes shaped by actual events that all readers will relate to. By telling stories of the people who encourage her writing, readers are treated to an assortment of funny, heart wrenching, and emotional stories that have one defining element: inspiration.
