So I finished this book a few days ago but it needed some time to process before I wrote my review.
Wow this book. I don’t ever cry at movies or books but this one got me.
This book tells so many stories but the main narrative is that one summer day 12-year-old Edward boarded a plane with his older brother and his parents. Something that so many of us have done. This plane was full of 183 other passengers on a flight from Newark to Los Angeles. Halfway through the journey the plane crashes and Edward is the sole survivor.
He’s 12 and he has to figure out what to do when you’ve lost everything and how do you and begin to move on from a tragedy like that.
The story jumps between Edward after the crash and meeting different passengers on the plane before it crashed. The storytelling was amazing I feel like I genuinely knew each of these characters.
The book gets a little slow in the middle but TRUST me it builds up and there is a reason for everything in this book.
Easily, one of if not the best book I’ve read all year. It comes out January 14 and if you need a good cry or a good shake out of the funk you’re in, check out this book.
