'Astonishing' Marian Keyes

A heart-wrenching, life-affirming novel about a 12-year-old boy who is the sole survivor of a deadly plane crash

One summer morning, a flight takes off from New York to Los Angeles. There are 216 passengers aboard: among them a Wall Street millionaire; a young woman taking a pregnancy test in the airplane toilet; a soldier returning from Afghanistan; and two beleaguered parents moving across the country with their adolescent sons. When the plane suddenly crashes in a field in Colorado, the younger of these boys, 12-year-old Edward Adler, is the sole survivor.
Dear Edward recounts the stories of the passengers aboard that flight as it hurtles toward its fateful end, and depicts Edward's life in the crash's aftermath as he tries to make sense of the loss of his family, the strangeness of his sudden fame, and the meaning of his survival. As Edward comes of age against the backdrop of sudden tragedy, he must confront one of life's most profound questions: how do we make the most of the time we are given?
'A rich, big-hearted tapestry. Fans of Room and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close will be spellbound by Dear Edward' Chloe Benjamin, author of The Immortalists

'A profoundly beautiful, page-turning story of mystery, loss, and wonder' Hannah Tinti, author of The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley and The Good Thief
'Dear Edward is a masterpiece that should be at the top of everyone's reading list.' J. Courtney Sullivan, bestselling author of Saints for All Occasions

'I loved Dear Edward so, so much. It made me laugh and weep. Magnificent!' Lily King, author of Euphoria

Recenzii

Ann Napolitano's writing is astonishing. I'm in awe
Gripping and elegiac, this is a captivating novel about loss, love and growing up.
Outstanding, beautifully written, a compulsive read. Dear Edward is the best book about a young person I've read since Emma Donoghue's Room
From the first page of this heartwarming and heart wrenching novel, I was dazzled. Napolitano weaves a story that brims with humanity-with joy and sorrow, love and friendship, survival and triumph, and a cast of unforgettable characters. Dear Edward is a masterpiece that everyone should put at the top of their reading list.
I loved Dear Edward so, so much. I laughed, I wept, and often I just stopped and marveled at the words on the page. Magnificent!
A stunning novel of courage and connection in the face of unimaginable loss. An extraordinary read.
A plane lifts into the sky, and in that timeless space between destinations Ann Napolitano gives voice to those suspended passengers, drawing out their differences and moments of connection, while weaving past and present into a profoundly beautiful, page-turning story of mystery, loss and wonder. Dear Edward is a meditation on survival, but more importantly, it is about carving a life worth living - about love and hope and caring for others, and all the transitory moments that bind us together, when the ghosts of many voices become one.
Eddie is an ordinary twelve-year-old, until a horrific plane crash turns him into the real-life Boy Who Lived. Ann Napolitano brings clear-eyed compassion to every character in Dear Edward, from Edward himself, caught between living and merely surviving, to his fellow passengers, who don't have that choice. The result is a rich, big-hearted tapestry that leaves no one behind. Fans of Room and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close will be spellbound by Dear Edward, which explores trauma with the same honesty and tenderness as it does the crooked path to healing
Dear Edward made me think, nod in recognition, care about its characters, and cry, and you can't ask more of a novel than that
Stunning.... in this life affirming tale, the downright unbearable blossoms into a testament to the power of love and grace
Persistently lovely...one of the most touching stories you're likely to read in the new year
A poignant novel about grief and hope
A haunting novel that's a masterful study in suspense, grief and survival... A powerful book about living a meaningful life during the most difficult of times
This is an astonishing novel which almost broke my heart
A wonderful cast of characters in a beautifully written coming-of-age story
Truly heartwarming... told with acute observation about the human soul
Gripping and powerful, this is a beautifully written novel about the importance of human connection - and how it's possible to rebuild a life, even when everything you associate with it is gone
A heartbreaking emotional journey
