Well, I persisted. Went ahead and finished it. It ended up being a lovely book. And I finally found that I did get attached to a couple of characters- John and Shay. While the intent of the book was not completely clear, the author‘s note at the end was helpful. I bought this book because it‘s the Barnes and Noble book club pick, but also because I think the cover with all the birds is gorgeous!

Bklover @Cinfhen I posted earlier today that was considering bailing on it. The main reason I continued with it was lack of motivation to select a different book. A lot of things (still) don‘t make sense, but I still enjoyed it. 3d

Okay- I‘m having trouble finding a new book after The Starless Sea. I started this one because I love the cover, and am 80 pages in and dithering about wondering if I should bail for now. I know it‘s probably a good book- trying to decide if I should push on. 🥴🙄🥴🙃🙂🤨🤨🤨

AmyG I found it to be good- not great. It was kind of a slowish read for me. 4d
JanuarieTimewalker13 I stuck with it, but there was a lack of warmth in the characters, I felt. This could‘ve been a really good book, but something went wrong. 4d

This was a sweet book and pretty sad. Because I had heard so much hype, I inevitably felt slightly let down. However, the language is beautiful and poignant. I found myself most moved by how very much Edward remained anchored to his brother. The end felt a little bit rushed to me. All in all, I recommend.

Dear Edward | Ann Napolitano

Pickpick

Ann Napolitano's Dear Edward is a gorgeous, heartbreaking novel that pays tribute to love, recovery, and resilience. Told in alternating chapters, Dear Edward centers on Eddie, a twelve-year-old boy who is the only survivor of a plane crash that kills the other 191 passengers, including his parents and older brother. Half of the chapters detail the flight, hour by hour, focusing on a handful of people who epitomize the variety of humanity. ⬇️

UnabridgedPod The other half of the book reveals Eddie's life after the crash, when he is taken in by his mother's sister Lacey, her husband John, and their neighbors Besa and her daughter Shay. Shay, who becomes Eddie's best friend, is an anchor for a boy who has lost his home, his family, and his sense of safety. ⬇️ 3w
UnabridgedPod This novel is SO powerful: it's beautifully written without being ostentatious, and it shows, with great sensitivity, the bond between Eddie and his brother Jordan, who is older by three years. The boys are home schooled by their father and consequently rely on each other for companionship more than most brothers might. Napolitano brilliantly portrays Eddie's dissociation as he tries to carve out a new life divorced entirely from the old. ⬇️ 3w
UnabridgedPod I cried more than once while reading this novel, enraptured by Napolitano's empathy for Eddie and understanding of the flaws of each character while also understanding how those flaws contribute to the characters' humanity. As the mother of a twelve-year-old boy, this one hits hard. What a great way to start 2020!⠀

Who else has read Dear Edward? What did you think? How has your new year in reading begun?

191 passengers died in a plane crash, including Edward‘s family. Edward was the only survivor.
This is a tough read on many levels. How do you deal with loss at such a young age? Loss of loved ones is unfathomable, let alone dealing with it. What happens to your life? How do you move on? And the constant question of ‘Why me?‘

Can you imagine being the sole survivor in a plane crash, losing your whole family and being under the microscope of the entire nation while trying to find joy in this new life ALL at the age of 12? This story broke my heart and pieced it back together again. So, so good. I‘m gonna be having my first book hangover of 2020 after this beautiful book.

I devoured this book. I think it spoke to me because I found a kindred spirit in Edward. Both of us are trying to survive loss and figure out how to live. This book often made me quite emotional. Even without that connection, I found the book to be well-written. The characters are genuine, and I appreciated how the chapters jumped from present day to the time leading to the crash. It all worked in a poignant way. My current #BOTM

This was probably one of the more wholesome reads I‘ve come across. It‘s a coming of age story, and could honestly maybe have been a good YA. Edward has PTSD, the story is told in flashbacks similar to what PTSD feels like. One minute you‘re in the present, and the next you‘re reliving the trauma and the before. This was a good read, especially right before the holidays to serve as a reminder that love has no shape and you can find it anywhere.

#Unpopularopinion This book had SO much potential, but it didn't land (no pun intended) for me. Edward's story drew me in but I felt that it skipped time too quickly; the other storyline of the people on board the plane was alternated with Edward's story. This plotline felt weaker and made the overall book feel uneven in depth. ⭐⭐⭐.5 Still worth reading! Thanks to #netgalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. #botm

squirrelbrain Interesting - that‘s a few of us now that didn‘t love it. I did give it a pick, but only cos I‘m a scaredy-cat when it comes to ratings. @JanuarieTimewalker13 also gave it a so-so. 1mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @squirrelbrain I so wanted to love this one! Btw, I think she got the idea from Bahia Bakari who was 12 also when she was a lone survivor of plane crash in 2009. 1mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 Sincerely, if you cut out the sex scene and added a little more warmth and depth of character, I think it would‘ve been a better YA read. The language was simple. 1mo
EmilyM @JanuarieTimewalker13 I totally agree with you about it being more YA. I teach high school and lead a book club and thought, as I read, my kids would probably like it. 1mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 You‘re input as a high school teacher is priceless!! Oh cool, I‘m thankful I was on the right track!

I went from pick to so-so to pan to almost bailing but I was too close to the end, back to liking it, so I‘m averaging it out with a so-so. I‘m not sure if it‘s me, if the book suffers from following (besides a good graphic memoir), The Institute. There were good aspects, but I never fully connected with the characters. I apologize to @squirrelbrain who has had to deal with my reactions. I agree with her that there was a lack of emotional depth.

JanuarieTimewalker13 I can‘t explain it...this book was like...close...but no cigar. The premise was interesting, maybe it suffered in the execution, I don‘t know. 1mo

This book made me think of Cheryl‘s quote. Teenage Edward is the sole survivor of a large plane crash & the only one from his family of 4. The story follows in alternating chapters the lead up to the crash & the forward motion of Edward‘s life after it.

It is clear through a lot of the book that he is haunted by the ghost of the twin ship where his family is alive, esp his brother, but I truly loved Edward when he gave up the ghost & lived. 4⭐️

#netgalley #arc

A 12 year-old boy is the sole survivor of a plane crash; as he struggles with his new life, relatives of the victims start writing letters to him.

Whilst I really enjoyed this book I‘m not sure it quite lived up to the hype. I worried about reading it on the train, just in case but, whilst there was the odd tear-jerking moment it didn‘t have the emotional depth that I expected.

Still a recommended read though...

AmyG I agree with you. I thought it would be a bit “more”. But still a decent read. 2mo
squirrelbrain I‘m glad you agree @AmyG - after all the gushing reviews I thought maybe it was me.... 2mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 I‘m reading it now and you‘re right on saying it lacks emotional depth. I don‘t feel anything for this story, it‘s so odd. I think the characters fall flat. 1mo
See All 12 Comments
squirrelbrain @JanuarieTimewalker13 - I won‘t say too much as you‘re still reading but I felt that the aunt and uncle, Shay and her Mum were particularly flat, which was really odd. The only character I had any feelings for was the headmaster with his plants.... 1mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 Good point!! Because he connected!! He had soul. I‘m on p279. I feel like this could be a debut, but it‘s not. I‘m sorry to say that at this point, it‘s a so-so for me. Although, I do like that she hammers home the point that everyone thinks they have so much time, but in reality, it may not be true. 1mo
squirrelbrain You‘re braver than me @JanuarieTimewalker13 I should have probably given it a so-so too but I feel ever so guilty when I do that... 😬 1mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 Oh I understand, believe me!! I feel the same way most times. I‘m wondering if this had been a library book for me, and not a BOTM, what my reaction would be. Interesting question, right? Am I harder on books I pay for? Do I expect more? (edited) 1mo
squirrelbrain Very interesting question @JanuarieTimewalker13 - I struggle to bail on books as well, but much easier if it‘s a library book that I haven‘t paid for.... 1mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 True!!! Ok, this book is annoying me now...how can the pilot not know the plane is in a “steep climb”? 1mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 She truly should have used the real life problem with the MCAS system that they were having with Boeing 737 Max planes...that would have made sense. 1mo
squirrelbrain Ooh you‘re getting *very* wound up @JanuarieTimewalker13 🤔🤣🤪 It‘s not meant to make you cross, it‘s meant to make you cry, did you not read the blurb?! 1mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 Hahahahaha...you‘re right! It‘s just that “sex in the bathroom girl” is being jostled all over the plane and you‘re telling me the pilot doesn‘t feel this? Hahahahahaha...I know, I‘m bad. I want my $14.99 back. LOL I would bail if I weren‘t so close to the end. Yet, I won‘t give it a pan bc I like aspects of it. 1mo

4.5 stars. This was such a unique plot. You follow the life of a 12 year old boy who is the sole plane survivor, as he comes to terms with his new reality. The author did an amazing job getting the reader into the boy‘s head and empathizing with him. It‘s a heartbreaking, inspiring, lovely, and hopeful story.
