Dear Edward

Read Dear Edward Characters Æ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ Ann Napolitano Ann Napolitano ✓ 2 Free read One summer morning twelve year old Edward Adler his beloved older brother his parents and 183 other passengers board a flight in Newark headed for Los Angeles Among them is a Wall Street wunderkind a young woman coming to terms with an unexpected pregnancy an injured vet returning from Afghanistan a septuagenarian business tycoon and a free spirited woman running away from her controlling hu. Many of us know what it feels like to grieve the loss of loved ones but how unimaginable to lose your whole family at twelve years old as the sole survivor of a plane crash Who is there to understand what Edward Adler this young boy broken physically and emotionally is feeling Is there anyone to help him heal to find his way through the trauma and horrific loss Perhaps it s his Aunt Lacey who has not only lost her sister but suffers her own personal losses Or maybe her husband John who is determined to protect Edward from those who may want to exploit him from any hurt Or maybe his therapist Dr Mike Maybe it s the young girl Shay who lives next door and becomes a source of solace for Edward Maybe it s his principal who helps nurture Edward by having him nurture the plants in his office Maybe it s the families of some of the others who have perished in the crash Perhaps it s all of them It takes a village This is such a heartbreaking story and I cried for Edward multiple times as he grieves the loss of his family particularly at the moments when he thinks of his older brother Jordan with whom he shared a special bond The sadness I felt was not just for his family but for a number of other passengers that we meet in alternating narratives which reveal their personal stories and why they are on the flight We learn what his parents and brother are thinking about and also an injured soldier a dying man a pregnant young woman a flamboyant woman who believes in reincarnation among others Later in the story we get a glimpse of the grief of their loved ones in a stunning way It s thought provoking in a number of ways how does a young boy bear his grief this loss the trauma of what he has experienced but it made me consider how little we know of the burdens that people whose paths we cross might carry This book is full of sadness without a doubt but it is also filled with shared sorrow love friendship and caring A beautiful story I received an advanced copy of this book from Random House through NetGalley

Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano is a 2020 Dial Press publication A sad uncomfortable and heartrending journey but ultimately a story of hope and inspiration Twelve year old Edward is the sole survivor of a plane crash which took the lives of 191 people including Edward s parents and older brother Now living with his aunt and uncle Edward is faced with the daunting task of recovering physically mentally and emotionally This story follows Edward s coming of age journey as he copes with the aftermath of the crash Along with his devoted family Edward also finds an unexpected support system through his friendship with Shay one his neighbors The two become inseparable when Shay offers Edward her unconditional support honesty and love Their relationship defied convention at times but Shay became Edward s rock on so many levels Edwards s present day journey is alternated with the stories of a select group of passengers who were on board the plane with Edward giving the reader a bit of insight into their personal lives leading up to the flight and how they co mingled on the plane before the crash This book was inspired by true events and is understandably melancholy The story is centered around grief the way it affects people in different ways and how they cope How will Edward come out on the other side of something this traumatic Right from the beginning I wanted to hug Edward and comfort him What a resilient soul so broken but also brave and determined If the story had stayed centered on Edward and the obstacles he and his family faced and how they worked through their grief and all the psychological pain of recovering under the glare of the media spotlight I would have given the book all the stars and a rave review However I have some mixed feelings about the airplane seuences It was very uncomfortable to read about these people under those circumstances I wondered if there might have been a different way to introduce them perhaps telling their story as a prelude to the crash before turning the spotlight over to Edward I felt it would only be right to give the reader some insight into Edward s life before the crash and naturally I could understand the impulse of the surviving family members to reach out to Edward to want to ask him uestions but these passages made me suirm with unease and kept the book shrouded in pain and darkness longer than necessary often overshadowing or disrupting insights into Edward s progress I also found it a bit curious that the author chose to relate the story in such a neutral disconnected format Except for Shay the other character s backstory and interactions often seemed to take place at a great distance save for one or two moments of intimate conversations However as the story progressed the grayness slowly lifts and the sun gradually begins to peek out from behind the gloomy clouds eventually lighting Edward s world with long overdue but generous warmthEdward s journey is long slow and painful but he finds strength and wisdom through many avenues building mental and emotional fortitude with grace despite his profound grief But of course he didn t do it alone I would be lying if I didn t admit that for me Shay steals the show What an amazing character In this whole drama she was the bright light that led Edward out of the tunnel of darkness That is not to say that others in his life weren t as essential because they were It took all these special people who stayed solid and committed to Edward for him to become whole again and he was worth every bit of the effort Their work and support paid off and I think each of them was blessed and touched by Edward as well I loved the way the story concluded on such a wonderful and positive note This story is a testament to the human spirit and to the power of love and friendship Although I felt the story was too remote much of the time it did eventually morph into a stirring inspirational and uplifting novel I m very conflicted about my rating here The book has some issues that were big enough to take me out of the story at times but it was so moving and profound I hate to lower my rating I ve been waffling between a 3 or 4 which usually means I seek middle ground with a 35 but I couldn t decide if I wanted to round up or down Ultimately despite some reservations I ve decided to round up because the story is one that has lingered in my mind for days which for me overrides some of the book s weaker areas 35 rounded up
