This is my first Stephen King read and whoa! I was completely hooked from page one. This was definitely a page turner and I couldn’t put this book down. It had me guess the whole way through and I loved the twist int he story. I also really loved the characters especially Holly. This book had my emotions going in every which way. I finished this book a few days ago and I still can’t stop thinking about it. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.
An unspeakable crime. A confounding investigation. At a time when the King brand has never been stronger, he has delivered one of his most unsettling and compulsively listenable stories.
An 11-year-old boy’s violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.
As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, King’s propulsive story kicks into high gear, generating strong tension and almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face?
We’ve all taken multiple test quizzes to see what house we are in, but if you could choose for yourself, what house would you choose to be in?❤️💙💛💚
I’ve been sorted into Hufflepuff, Gryffindor and Slytherin through multiple quizzes, but I think of myself as more of a Ravenclaw. 💙
Thank you to @penguinrandomhouse for gifting me this book. This book was both emotional and absolutely beautiful! The author did a wonderful job of weaving the two narratives of the time pre accident and post accident in this story. I was hooked from the very beginning to the satisfying end. I stayed up to the wee hours of the morning finishing this one and it has continued to stay with me since I finished it. This book is a must read! I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.
One summer morning, twelve-year-old Edward Adler, his beloved older brother, his parents, and 183 other passengers board a flight in Newark headed for Los Angeles. Among them are a Wall Street wunderkind, a young woman coming to terms with an unexpected pregnancy, an injured veteran returning from Afghanistan, a business tycoon, and a free-spirited woman running away from her controlling husband. Halfway across the country, the plane crashes. Edward is the sole survivor.
Edward’s story captures the attention of the nation, but he struggles to find a place in a world without his family. He continues to feel that a part of himself has been left in the sky, forever tied to the plane and all of his fellow passengers. But then he makes an unexpected discovery—one that will lead him to the answers of some of life’s most profound questions: When you’ve lost everything, how do you find the strength to put one foot in front of the other? How do you learn to feel safe again? How do you find meaning in your life?
