Dear Edward

Dear EdwardDear Edward by Ann Napolitano
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

“There was no reason for what happened to you, Eddie. You could have died; you just didn’t. It was dumb luck. Nobody chose you for anything. Which means, truly, that you can do anything.”

Yuk. Just yuk. I was expecting a story of grief, love, loss, survival, and overcoming tragedy. While the intentions were good, and there may have been a bit of that in there, this book did not make me FEEL anything. Except annoyed. Cold writing and very little plot left me empty. Perhaps this book may appeal to middle-schoolers and tweens, but probably not. 2.5 stars
