THIS NOVEL IS NOW AVAILABLEThis is my first 5 star read of 2020 and it is a great one So many of my Goodreads friends were raving about this book and now I can see whyThe blurb tells a lot of the outline of this story A plane en route from Newark to Los Angeles crashes killing everyone on board except for 12 year old Edward Adler I have found from doing some research that the author based this story on a real plane crash which occurred in 2010 it was traveling from South Africa to London when it crashed killing everyone except for one 9 year old boy This isn t a story about that crash but the author stated that it was this event which held her imagination for a long time and she knew that she had to write this storyThe novel travels back and forth in time between what was happening during the flight and Edward s life afterward The prose flows smoothly and I found both timelines eually interestingFortunately for Edward he had an aunt Lacey and uncle John who cared very deeply for Edward In the beginning Edward felt the most connection with Lacey because she lost her sister in the flight Though never able to have a child of their own Lacey and John play an integral part in helping to heal Edward and help him to carry on with his lifeIt s unimaginable to think of waking up in a hospital having lost your entire family He was also physically injured The most dominant injury to one of his legs took many weeks in the hospital and many many months of therapy for his body to become whole again Of course the mind and heart are difficult to heal and Edward was helped by many others in the novel He becomes incredibly close to Shay his next door neighbor who is his age and they eventually form an unbreakable bondHe has a wonderful psychologist Mike who seems to know how to gently steer Edward into finding ways to heal himself The principal at his school asks Edward to help him care for his beloved ferns which he surrounds himself with in his school office The adjustment to school was particularly difficult for Edward not only because of his notoriety but also because he had been home schooled for his entire lifeWithout going into of the plot I can tell you that this is a wonderful story that you will find yourself immersed in The characters along with the ones mentioned above are very well developed and an interesting collection of people On the plane there is a soldier on his way home a pregnant single woman who is hoping her boyfriend will propose a dying tycoon and a free spirited woman who is fleeing her present husband in the hopes of starting a new life in California At a point in the story Edward and Shay come across a finding which will come to help heal Edward in many many ways The novel was heartbreaking in many ways but it was also filled with so many kind people that I was left feeling very hopeful in the end Without divulging anything further I will say that it was one of the most satisfying endings that I have read in a very long timeI highly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys a great story with wonderful characters and a premise which will give you much to think about and ponderI received an ARC of this novel from

I am conflicted I am a tad disappointedI thought I would love Dear Edward I wanted to love it But I just didn t And I think I know why but on that in a minuteBased on true events Dear Edward is the coming of age story of you guessed it Edward a twelve year old boy who loses his entire family when their plane to California plummets to the ground Edward is the sole survivor of the crash while the lives of his father mother brother and nearly 200 other people on the flight tragically come to an end The novel flits back and forth between telling the story of Edward s personal journey after the crash and giving us glimpses of the lives of a handful of other passengers on the flight Both narrative threads ultimately culminate with the passengers final moments before the crash of the planeOne only has to read the blurb for Dear Edward to know that it is a novel about grief loss overcoming tragedy and survival Going into it one expects a deeply emotional heart wrenching readBut you know what It really isn t and there s the rubNapolitano s writing is cold distant almost Instead of a novel I often felt as if I was reading a report written by a journalist or that the story was being told by a play by play announcer Where is the emotion The love The grief The sadness Because I didn t feel it It just wasn t thereAnd that absence of emotion was very problematic for meI didn t feel close to the characters I didn t feel inserted into consumed by the story My mind wandered off at times because I just wasn t THAT emotionally invested in the novel Oh there were a handful of times while reading where I was surprised to find that I had tears in my eyes But I recognized that my tears were brought on by my own personal empathy for Edward and his family not by Napolitano s writing As a mother of two young boys I couldn t help but imagine one of my sons in Edward s place How I shudder at the thoughtBut still as flawed as it may be Dear Edward really isn t a bad read I did enjoy itIt s just not a great readAnd it could ve been If Napolitano had put a little heart into it it really could ve been
