Since we have begun corresponding with each other, I have become a changed person forever for the better, in ways beyond explanation.When Stacy Evans hears that a childhood friend, Andrew Fielding, has recently been arrested in connection with a murder, she decides to write to him in prison. "Pen Pals" is a collection of their correspondence that helped their relationship blossom from a renewed friendship to something much more meaningful.A busy college student, Stacy is constantly haunted by her past in foster care and living on the street as a teenage prostitute. Andrew is forced to face the reality of his crimes and the regrettable decisions that landed him in his current situation. Over the course of a year and a half, Andrew and Stacy fall in love with the idea of the other during a difficult time in both of their young adult lives. But with the uncertainty of the future, they must decide if their relationship is strong enough to continue-as friends, as long-distance lovers-or at all.The letters in "Pen Pals" beautifully capture the emotions of these two young adults and reveal what Stacy and Andrew learn from each other in this chaotic time in their lives.
