Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano
Twelve-year old Edward and his family board a plane headed to Los Angeles. The plane crashes and Edward is the sole survivor. We follow Edward as he copes with the aftermath of losing his entire family and deals with the fame of being the only survivor of the 184 passengers aboard the plane. Alternately, the details of the plane and the stories of the other passengers reveal what happened on that day. This is a wonderful story of human resilience after tragedy.
