Book about girl reading from the dead?

[ Edited ]

I've been searching for this book for a few days, and I cannot find it ANYWHERE! It's driving me crazy. The problem is, I don't have many details about it at all. The title was something along the lines of "Please Read This" Or "Read This When I'm Gone", though I'm not conmpletely sure. It was about a girl who finds a letter or something written to her from her father, who had died. It is a relatively new book; I'm sorry I don't have any more details about it! I'm just hoping someone has read it and recognized it, or otherwise makes a really accurate guess!

Good luck!

Re: Book about girl reading from the dead?

I wonder if it might be "By the Time You Read This" by Lola Jaye (2009): Lois's father, Kevin, died when she was five. Seven years later, she receives a book from Auntie Philomena on the day her mother remarries. The book, The Manual , is by her father and is chock-full of his advice for Lois, to be read one chapter per year, on her birthday.

A lifelong reader, now may my life be long enough to catch up on my reading!
