Dear Sylvia

(2008)
(The third book in the Owen Skye series)
A novel by

 
 
Much to his despair, Owen Skye watches his true love, Sylvia Tull, move away. But he still has the stationery set she gave him for his birthday, so at least he can keep telling her stories, even if it's only by mail. So Owen begins to write down all the things that are going on: his little brother getting his head stuck in the banister, the disastrous camping trip with his horrible girl cousins, how his new baby cousin will only stop screaming in his arms. But despite his carefully crafted efforts, Owen can't bring himself to mail the letters. While he knows he's a born writer, getting the right words onto the page is another story altogether. Young readers can easily identify with Owen as he wrestles with spelling, his insecurity as a writer, and his deep desire to tell Sylvia what's going on in his life - and in his heart. With this irresistible epistolary novel, Alan Cumyn has given his acclaimed series an original and engrossing twist.
