The Low Down: High school girl survives plane crash.
Best Thang ‘Bout It: It’s real, it’s hard to read in places, and there’s no neat little bow at the end. I love fantasy and happy endings, but reading something that positively could happen is very powerful. The main character’s inner conflicts, change in her behavior, and inability to connect with her family and friends are spot-on. I also like the secondary stories with Joe, the next-door neighbor, and Margaret, the Vietnam vet.
I’m Cranky Because: Huh. I don’t think I have anything to put here.
Should You?: Yes, especially if you like to shed some tears.
