About Dear Edward: Twelve-year-old Edward Adler is the sole survivor in a plane crash that kills over 180 people, including his older brother and his parents. Edward’s story captures the attention of the nation, but he struggles to
find a place in a world without his family. He continues to feel that a
part of himself has been left in the sky, forever tied to the plane and
all of his fellow passengers. But then he makes an unexpected
discovery—one that will lead him to the answers of some of life’s most
profound questions: When you’ve lost everything, how do you find the
strength to put one foot in front of the other? How do you learn to feel
safe again? How do you find meaning in your life?
is at once a transcendent coming-of-age story, a multidimensional
portrait of an unforgettable cast of characters, and a breathtaking
illustration of all the ways a broken heart learns to love again.
