passengers, and then following Edward as he comes to terms with what his survival truly means to him and to the world at large I really wanted to love this book and had thought that I would find it deeply moving but sadly I found the writing to be in too much of a detached style for my personal taste I preferred Edward s story and struggle to come to grips with what happened to him a lotthan the stories of the people on board the plane Those stories to me seemed to be rather confusing and I was constantly getting mixed up between characters due to the style of narrative used I do however also think that because I read an eARC copy that is not the finalised version, that its formatting on my kindle paperwhite made thingsdifficult for me to follow and added to my lack of enjoyment For the last quarter of the book I switched to using the Bluefire app on a tablet and the formatting was 100% better As I said earlier, I very much preferred following Edward s story I thought it was very interesting to read about how he dealt with survivor s guilt and the loss of his entire family along with his medical problems and upheaval to a new life with his aunt and uncle His relationship with his new friend Shay was the highlight of the book for me and I really loved how their friendship helped to create a new normal for Edward Overall I m sad to say that this book wasn t completely to my liking but it did have some very touching moments that hopefully a different reader would enjoythan I did An e copy of this book was kindly provided to me by the publisher, Penguin Books UK Viking,

examination of the sorrow that follows losing loved ones, as well as the suffering that follows any harrowing ordeal, this centers primarily on twelve year old Edward Adler who is the sole survivor of a plane crash During the early part of the flight we learn bits and pieces about some of the 183 passengers One young woman has just found out she is pregnant, while another woman is leaving behind a husband, an elderly business mogul has an assistant flying with him, a woman, Edward s mother, working on a script for a movie in first class while her two sons and husband sit in coach, another woman who believes that she has been reincarnated many times Many other characters stories are shared in alimited sense, but this is really Edward s story After the plane crash, and after a somewhat lengthy stay in the hospital Edward goes to live with his mother s sister and her husband in West Milford, New Jersey, overlooking Greenwood Lake It s not that far from where his family had lived in NYC, but it has the benefit of being remote and relatively quiet, although it had lost some of the charm it once held as a summer resort town over the years When the girl next door befriends Edward, it is like a lifeline for him, and he grabs hold to it, but it is still a while before Edward begins to even begin to return to his pre sole survivor status Joy is fleeting for some time, but there are moments where his trust and comfort in the company of Shay show his walls coming down, if not with everyone then with her There are some very lovely, and some very emotional elements of this story, but the frequently changing perspectives took a bit of a toll on me for the story overall Still, I found this to be a very compelling story My eyes filled with tears at moments, and other moments had me smiling as I saw Edward finding his way toward a life with love, and the peace that follows discovering the path to the life he was meant to live Pub Date 14 Jan 2020Many thanks for the ARC provided
