Beloved by millions for her frank, heartfelt books for children and teens, Judy Blume penned one of her few adult novels about a reallife experience in her own youth: three plane crashes in her hometown of Elizabeth, New Jersey, during the winter of 1951-2. The remarkable story unfolds in the voices of several townspeople, including fourteen-year-old Miri Ammerman; her mother, Rusty, one of Elizabeth's only single, working mothers; Rusty's journalist brother Henry, tasked with covering the tragedies for the local newspaper; Christina, a young woman determined to chart her own course, despite her overbearing family; and Daisy, a medical secretary who devotes her time to caring for others. The crashes alter all of their lives…but those lives do go on, filled with daily dramas, family squabbles, new love, shifting friendships, and so many other of the deeply human experiences Judy Blume chronicles so well.
