Reading this book was like chatting with a friend you haven't seen in decades (but it's like you've never been apart). So comforting, so good, so familiar.

It's the early 1950s in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Commercial air travel is still in the early stages and within a three-month period there are three plane crashes in Elizabeth. The town is rocked and everyone is scared -- theories about why, how, and who are flying. We see the crashes and the aftermath through the eyes of a varied cast of characters, but primarily we spend our time with 9th grader Miri, her family, and her friends.

A great one for book clubs -- so much to discuss! The choices these characters make are just waiting to be dissected. (And of course, it'll feel like you're gossiping about your friends.)
