Dear Edward

Leave a comment

This book was different than the books I usually read and I really enjoyed it. Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano follows the life of a boy during and after the plane he is on with his family crashes and he is the only survivor. As you can imagine, life after that kind of trauma is not easy. He goes to live with his aunt and they must also navigate guiding a teenager who has lost everything.

I really enjoyed how the story focuses on Edward, but also tells the stories of other passengers on the plane. Edward learns about the other passengers and even learns new things about his own parents and brother. Granted, this does take many, many years and an interesting journey to get there. This book tells a sad but encouraging story about a boy who grows up fast and learns to navigate a new world. Definitely check it out and let me know what you think!
