What if you were 12 years old and you were the only survivor in a plane crash that killed 191 people? When Edward’s parents and brother were killed, he began a new life with his mother’s sister and husband in suburban New Jersey. Having grown up in New York City and homeschooled by his father, adjusting not only to his healing body and dealing with his emotions, he was sent to middle school. Luckily, he had an aunt and uncle who tried hard to make a family for him, a neighbor his own age who was wise beyond her years and a principal who really cared. When he and his neighbor discover duffel bags filled with letters from relatives who did not survive, he found purpose for his life. Well written and thought provoking.
