Book Review: Dear Anjali by Melissa Glen Haber

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Genre: Fiction

Age Recommended: 12 and up

This book had an interesting end but I found majority of the content repetitive and I felt that most of the book was about a girl crying about losing her friend and fawning over a guy.

Dear Anjali


Meredith’s world is turned upside-down when her best friend Anjali dies. Anjali was in the hospital for a few days before she passed away but nobody truly believed that she would die until the reality of the situation hit them.

Meredith still hasn’t accepted that her best friend is dead and she is bent on writing letters to Anjali in hope that she will respond to one eventually. Moreover, a girl that Meredith and Anjali both disliked is still picking on Meredith. Before, Anjali would stand up for the two of them but now there’s nobody to protect Meredith from her taunts.

Also, Noah, a boy that the two girls had a crush on is suddenly noticing Meredith. She doesn’t know what to do about this and she is puzzled when he almost asks her out. However, she hears that Anjali was Noah’s secret boyfriend and when Noah confirms it, she breaks down completely.

Meredith believes that her whole life has been a lie…
