Paper Planes & Other Things We Lost Review


Paper Planes & Other Things We Lost

Author: Mindy Hayes & Michele G. Miller

Genre: Contemporary

Age Group: Young Adult

My Rating: 5 / 5 

Goodreads Summary:

On June 18, 1992, Flight 397 crashed off the coast of Long Island. But this story isn’t about the crash. Not completely.

This is a story about two high school seniors living very different lives, who share one connection: they both lost parents on that fateful flight.

Slowly, letters bridge the gap between California and Pennsylvania as Ruby Kaminski and Brett Pratt find a way to remember the past while looking toward the future.

This is a story about hope, paper planes, and the other things they lost.

My Thoughts:

What do I say about this book?  Besides the fact that I am in love with the cover (who wouldn't be?), I knew from the very beginning since I read the summary that this was going to be one of those books that breaks your heart a little bit, and yet still has you smiling, laughing, and gushing over the most sweetest things ever.

This is one of those stories that stays with you long after you finish.  It's one of those books that you want to go back and re-read almost immediately after finishing it, because you know that even though it tore at you heart, it still somehow managed to put it back together in the most sweetest, perfect way imaginable.

Make Significance TV Show Happen!

Hello fellow bookworm friends!!

I know I haven't been around much, thanks to it being the end of the year and being buried under finals.  But anyway, school's about to end in about three weeks, so I will for sure be back to posting more often then! :D

For now though, I am just popping in to share something that means a lot to not only me, but also to a huge group of readers and an amazing author!  Some of you guys may be familiar with the Significance series by author Shelly Crane.  If you aren't familiar with it, don't worry! You can learn all about it HERE. :) This series is one of my all time favorites, and last year it was on it's way to becoming a awesome TV show.  However, due to some conflicts arising this show has currently been stopped.  All of us readers/fans, the cast, and author are of course upset over this.  Thankfully, another super awesome fan created a petition to continue with the show and bring it to the big screen!  So what I am sharing now is that petition.  All of us readers, the cast, and Ms. Crane would love to see this series make it to the big screen, but in order for that to happen, the cast and crew need all the support they can get.  So if you have heard of this series, read it and loved it, please consider signing the petition and sharing it as well. :)  Even if you haven't heard of or read this series yet, but would like to check it out, and believe that this series is worth making into a TV show, please consider signing the petition.  The petition also explains the conflict and why the show was stopped after all the effort that was put into it.

To learn more about it and/or to sign the petition you can go HERE.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and a even bigger THANK YOU if you choose to sign the petition and support this amazing book series and show! :D 

Hope you all have a great weekend!
