This book is a wonderful slice-of-life study of a boy whose life is a miracle that has been completely transformed by tragedy and loss. As he grows up in a world without his family, he has to learn how to live again, for them, for the other people on the plane, and for the living people who are struggling to help him while also dealing with their own issues. The ending is satisfying and tear-jerking. I enjoyed this one a lot.
What a heart-rending read! It hit me in all the right places. Took off half a star because the middle really dragged. So glad I didn't give up.
