From Goodreads:
From the author of Letters to the Lost comes a heart-wrenching story of two teens with big secrets and a love that could set them free.

Rev Fletcher is battling the demons of his past. But with loving adoptive parents by his side, he’s managed to keep them at bay...until he gets a letter from his abusive father and the trauma of his childhood comes hurtling back.

Emma Blue spends her time perfecting the computer game she built from scratch, rather than facing her parents’ crumbling marriage. She can solve any problem with the right code, but when an online troll’s harassment escalates, she’s truly afraid.

When Rev and Emma meet, they both long to lift the burden of their secrets and bond instantly over their shared turmoil. But when their situations turn dangerous, their trust in each other will be tested in ways they never expected. This must-read story will once again have readers falling for Brigid Kemmerer’s emotional storytelling.

There are no words to explain how excited I am to be writing this review right now. To have actually read this book so early. I love Brigid's books so much and when I was asked if I wanted to review her new one I jumped at the chance. I loved Letters to the Lost and Rev was a character I fell in love with when reading that book so to find that More Than We Can Tell is Rev's story I really couldn't contain my excitement. I loved every single moment of this book.

Rev has had a really troubled childhood and he is just starting to deal with it when he gets a letter from his abusive father it sends Rev back into despair. His father still holds some sort of power over him and Rev doesn't know what to do. Emma's life is also spiraling out of control. Avid gamer and game designed Emma is subjected to harassment from an online troll. When Rev and Emma meet they finally find they have someone to talk to. But can their trust in each other stay when everything else seems to be against them.

Now I adored Letters to the Lost but holy crap I think this book just blew the others out of the water. I loved More Than We Can Tell even more. It was utterly perfect and I couldn't put it down. I had already fallen in love with Rev in Letters but this was just so beautiful and perfect and I fell in love with him even more. Rev is just such a beautiful and unique character. Often in YA books you find the female character who has had a very traumatic past and the guy helps her get over it. It was really unique and beautiful to see the guy in that position and that it can be just as hard, if not harder, to get over in the opposite sex.

More Than We Can Tell is one of my favourite books so far this year. I loved it so much and I couldn't put it down. I was taken away on this amazing journey and it made me laugh, cry and fall in love. It's certainly a big emotional rollercoaster and I loved experiencing it all throughout the book. If you haven't read any of Brigid's books I highly recommend them all, but especially this one.

More Than We Can Tell is the perfect journey of trauma, life and love. It has everything you could ever want in a book and it was utterly beautiful. It was raw and real and I adore every single second of it. It's not to be missed.
