If you like period fiction, there's Daddy-Long-Legs by Jean Webster; it's public domain. An orphan describes her college years (at Vassar, although it's not named) to her rich anonymous benefactor.

“Flowers for Algernon” by Daniel Keyes is a classic SF novel written in an epistolary style. One of the few novels I’ve ever read that brought tears to my eyes.

I've just read the blurb for "Flowers For Algernon" and it reminds me of the film "The Lawnmower Man".

Strangely, I've had Daddy Long Legs on my kindle for ages and not got round to reading it. I must rectify that.

I've added Sorcery and Cecelia to my Amazon "I'll buy this when £6 doesn't seem too much for an ebook," list.

I got the omnibus cheap last year, too, and I've just finished the second book.

I don't know it was written the same way, but it was not quite epistolary. It's still in alternating chunks by each character, but they are nominally from a diary and a report, rather than letters to each other. Also the two are together for most of the story, so it's really just a change of viewpoint for a short while. I still enjoyed the book a lot, though.
