Description

"Ann Napolitano's new novel is the best book about a young person I've read since Emma Donoghue's Room, and if there's any justice in the world, it's going to be a phenomenon: outstanding storytelling, great writing, absolutely The Real Deal."--John Boyne, bestselling author of The Heart's Invisible Furies

"Dear Edward isn't just a beautiful novel, clear-eyed and compassionate even as it pulls us into difficult terrain. It's an examination of what makes us human, how we survive in this mysterious world, how we take care of each other. It's the kind of book that forces you to trust that the author, who will break your heart, will also lead you toward something wondrous, something profound. After this brilliant novel, I will follow Ann Napolitano to the ends of the earth."--Kevin Wilson, author of The Family Fang and Nothing to See Here

"This is a stunning novel of courage and connection in the face of unimaginable loss. It's beautifully written, with characters so intensely alive you will hold your breath as they break your heart--an extraordinary read."--Helen Simonson, author of Major Pettigrew's Last Stand

"From its breathtaking premise--a boy is the sole survivor of an airplane crash--to its absolutely rhapsodic finish, Dear Edward is about the persistence of hope, the depth of love, and the unexpected, radiant moments that make up our lives. If I loved this stunning novel any more, I'd have to marry it."--Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You and Cruel Beautiful World

"From the first page of this heartwarming and heart-wrenching novel, I was dazzled. Napolitano weaves a story that brims with humanity--with joy and sorrow, love and friendship, survival and triumph, and a cast of unforgettable characters. Dear Edward is a masterpiece that should be at the top of everyone's reading list."--J. Courtney Sullivan, bestselling author of Saints for All Occasions

"I loved Dear Edward so, so much. It made me laugh and weep. So many times I had to stop after reading a paragraph to acknowledge the beauty of Ann Napolitano's writing. In Edward, his friend Shay, and the passengers on the airplane, Napolitano offers unforgettable characters, people you know you will miss after you've turned the book's last page. Magnificent!"--Lily King, author of Euphoria

"With its expert pacing and picture-perfect final page, Dear Edward is a wondrous read. It is a skillful and satisfying examination of not only what it means to survive, but of what it means to truly live."--Booklist (starred review)

"Wonderfully detailed characters . . . The potent prose brings readers close to the complex emotional and psychological fallout after tragedy. . . . By the end, readers will feel a comforting sense of solace. Napolitano's depiction of the nuances of post-trauma experiences is fearless, compassionate, and insightful."--Publishers Weekly

"Edward's father used mathematics to 'tie together pieces of the universe'; Ann Napolitano uses words to do the same in Dear Edward--a dazzling, tender novel about sorrow and despair, resilience and great love."--Shelf Awareness

"Penetrating . . . What makes this narrative so effective is its alternating between the ordinary events unfolding on the flight and the aftermath of the crash. . . . [A] vivid story of one's boy coming of age redirected by tragedy."--Library Journal
