Still reeling from the suicide of his best friend Tess, seventeen-year old Brendan struggles to overcome addiction and identity issues. Walking the ledge outside his Manhattan apartment has become its own sort of drug, as he stands night after night with his arms outstretched, ready to fly away.
Sarah can see him from her window, and begins journaling about a boy on a ledge. Paige and Nate, a young couple in another building, can see both teens from their fire escape.
None of them know the others are watching, but a strong desire for freedom resides in each of them, and as their lives begin to intertwine, that desire will be tested. Anyone can jump, but not everyone can fly...
Sharp, humorous, and deeply layered, this chronicle of a suicidal teen's survival explores the reality of addiction and other tough issues, but does so easily, through the use of multiple perspectives, intelligent dialogue and authentic characters. Equal parts romance, contemporary drama, and coming of age, this highly engaging and intensely beautiful novel challenges our cultural perceptions in the battle for balance.

From The Back Cover:
"When I was a kid I used to dream about being a pilot. I had a bunch of model airplanes and I would fly them off our balcony, then ride the elevator down and try to find them. Of course they were never there, so I figured once they left the balcony they must have become real airplanes-Pinocchio style. I know better now, but there's a part of me that still wants to believe in miracles. When you make the leap, can you really become what everyone else says you can't?" - Brendan

About the Author
Lynda Meyers is an award-winning author whose depth and authenticity is revealed continually through her writing. She seems to blow past genres, genders and age brackets and instead delivers stories and characters that can't easily be written off. Her ability to describe so fully the interior struggle surrounding issues like depression, rape, addiction and cutting is startling in its beauty. She takes readers deep into the hearts and minds of troubled characters but doesn't leave them there. Humor, intelligent dialogue and intense metaphor are tucked into the corners of real life and used to expertly create a portrait that stares back at you no matter where you're standing in the room. An excerpt of Letters From The Ledge (the first three chapters) as well as the ability to order signed copies of the book, can be found at the author's blog: or the book's website Lynda lives and writes in New York with her husband, four children and two adorable Maltese puppies.
