Author: Mindy Hayes & Michele G. Miller
Age Group: Young Adult
My Rating: 5 / 5
On June 18, 1992, Flight 397 crashed off the coast of Long Island. But this story isn’t about the crash. Not completely.
is a story about two high school seniors living very different lives,
who share one connection: they both lost parents on that fateful flight.
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.
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.
I am not going to tell you what this book was about or even go into any details about it, because this is one of those books that you need to experience for yourself. I loved every second of reading this book, and it has definitely found a place close to my heart! This is one of those books where the characters will jump off the page and come alive, and where you can feel each raw emotion as if it was your own.
This book is more than just romance. It's a book about life, pain, hope, and love all rolled into one big amazing bundle. Paper Planes & Other Things We Lost is definitely a book worth reading and until you read it for yourself, you will not understand just how amazing this book really is!
