comment Can I publish excerpts from a letter without permission?
Do not confuse your rights with the public's need-to-know. It may be legitimate and necessary to use a letter in a court of law and yet not be lawful to publish that letter. I think it is a wise decision to consult a lawyer, especially if the situation is "far from harmless". Good luck with your project, if (as it seems) this is about coming to terms with or righting a wrong.

comment Is it ok to “reprise” a scene from an earlier screenplay in a sequel?
I'm not sure I understand. You want a sort of tv episode "what went before" at the beginning of your cinematic movie? That would be uncommon. Movie goers are usually familiar with the basic plot of the first movie, and even sequels are highly stand alone.

comment How to write for a certain audience?
In publishing, "Young Adult" refers to books written for 13 to 19 year olds. They usually feature protagonists that are between 14 and 16. The age group that pschologists refer to as "young adults" or emerging adults", that is college age persons between 19 and maybe 23, are called "New Adult" in book publishing. So a YA book is in fact targeted at teenagers. What age group are you writing for? And how old is your protagonist?

comment What are the elements of a good blurb?
Google for "logline". A blurb has the same ingredients. Protagonist, defining characteristic or inner conflict, goal, setting, antagonist, are the most important. The blurb is like a summary of the book unti and including the inciting incident.
