Review: A 12-year old boy is the sole survivor of a horrific plane crash. The author weaves timelines of passengers on the plane prior to the crash and Edward's life afterwards.
I was expecting a tear jerker and while this had some emotional elements, it was really filled with more hope and inspiration. I loved Lacey and John, his mother's sister and her husband who took Edward in after the crash. Loved Edward's friendship with his neighbor. Overall, really enjoyable.
*Also worth noting that the author had the idea about this book based on the crash of Afriqiyah Airways Flight 771 in 2010. The flight crashed killing 103 passengers, a 9-year old Dutch boy was the sole survivor.
