“Megan, against all odds, is the only survivor of a small plane crash. Everyone in her small community celebrates her miraculous survival while Megan silently suffers severe post-traumatic stress flashbacks. Eventually she finds herself spiraling out of control. A deeply moving story of loss, healing and recovery. ”Libeary Mery wrote this review Sunday, February 17, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“The only survivor of a terrible plane crash Megan's a miracle. That's what everyone is saying her coach, her parents, her teachers, her friends. But Megan doesn't feel like a miracle she doesn't even remember what happened, though she says she does. Now instead of being that girl they all think she is she keeps odd hours, takes long runs at night. She's starting to drift, she wants to remember what happen. But once she does she'll wish she didn't. ”Madddie M wrote this review Saturday, November 10, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“So I just went back and checked and it seems like I always feel the same way about Elizabeth Scott. I want her books to move and and make me feel. The topics sure suggest that they will. But they never do and I think it's mostly to due to how the characters are written. I never really care about them or feel sympathetic for them.
I wanted to feel bad for Megan and feel sorry for her. After all she witnessed at the plane crash, I wanted to like her and be hopeful for her. But I really didn't care about her. I get that she didn't feel anything but I don't think she needed to come off as so cold...she could have felt nothing and still been a sympathetic character.
And there are some other smaller details that I would have liked to have known. Was her brother diagnosed with a disease or was he just a sick kid with bad luck at always getting hurt? Just why did the plane crash? And I thought it was kinda weird that she was on such a small plane coming back from soccer camp. It would have made more sense if she was on a commercial airliner (her parents didn't seem to have enough money for plane that only held 5 or 6 people) or a small plane with other soccer players.
So yeah, it wasn't a bad story by any means, it just didn't get me to feel anything.
