I toggled back and forth on 3 and 4 stars when rating this book. It was a smooth read and held my attention, but i was frustrated with the amount of characters being introduced. I had a difficult time keeping up with who was who and how they were connected. I thought the main characters were developed well. I was drawn in to Miri and her family, as well as her relationship with Mason. I thought the ending of the book was very well done. It was nice to see the reunion and reconcilation of several of the main characters.
I love books that bring in real-life events such as this one. I was not familiar with the plane crashes that took place in Elizabeth, NJ.
