Blurb from Goodreads:

Three best friends.
Morgan’s name is synonymous with what’s hot in the world of fashion as she models for the world’s best and most well known designers.
Invincible Rising is touring the globe with their multi-platinum selling album while lead singer Alaia uses her solo projects to experience music beyond rock.
While her friends travel around the world, Lilianna creates worlds of her own in her bestselling novels. Touring is fun, but she’s much happier being beside of her talented photographer and art gallery owner husband, Dylan. They love their

Dream-Come-True lives…… Ten years from now.

Right now they’re in high school. Morgan is fighting to be cheer captain and juggling boyfriends. Alaia is competing for choir solos and wants a bad boy that won’t break her heart. Lilianna wishes that her long time crush Dylan would see her as more than a friend and is bored – searching for a more creative writing outlet than the school’s newspaper.
She finds that outlet through writing letters as if they were ten years into the future, encouraging her friends to do the same. Comparing their teen written letters to their adult lives, the girls discover that futures don’t always turn out as you plan and your entire world can change in a heartbeat.
Future Letters, filled with friendship, love, confusion and heartbreak, is the story of their lives and dreams told through glimpsing into their private world of note passing, emails, text messages and private chat rooms.

Review:

This was a new way of reading a book for me. It was all written in the form of letters or chats or personal messages and texts to each other. I think I only read 2 or 3 books written like this, but they are were just one person writing in her diary or letters to one person from one person. But somehow the writer made this all work. The book cover is also very fitting, considering the fact that the “idea” for the Future Letters, comes from someone young and in school.
So you have these three besties, but also a guy, well more guys, and they are just good friends, even though two of the guys are much older, because they are brother and best friend of brother, but also cousin of the other guy, who is more the age of the girls. Their lives are so intertwined, that they keep in touch and help each other.
When I got used to the way the story was being told, I thought ok, this is more a book I would let my daughter read. And I still would, but it does not only talk about teenagers and their dreams and crushes, it also touches some more serious stuff, like drinking and driving, and being responsible while drinking. It’s a good clean book with solid advice and I love it for all of this. True love, life after something devastating happens, nurturing talents and of course nurturing relationships. If you like all this, pick this up! It’s only $2.99 right now.
