Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano

Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano was an emotional book that took me by surprise.  It follows the story of Edward Adler, a 12 year old who was the sole survivor of a plane crash. The novel shows his struggles through the healing process the years after the event.  At the same time the story also relives the flight minute by minute from boarding until the accident.

Although it is emotional and as a reader I felt myself becoming attached to characters I knew were going to die the novel is oddly uplifting.  It shows how people can persevere and not just survive but truly live after difficult situations. 

This is a powerful story and I recommend you check it out when it hits shelves in January 2020. 

I received an advanced readers copy of this novel from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
