This book was a strange one for me I really enjoyed the plot and was excited to get to know the characters and get into why Air and her brother were so closeI love emotional contemporary books with a love story in the middle These two characters both have loved ones on a missing plane and you get to see their anguish and worry at points throughout the book however the actions they take whilst not knowing where their family member is is uite strangeDuring the road trip Air and Christopher begin to bond over their families and their little uirks I connected with Air because she was like me as a child she didn t want to dress girly and play with dolls she wanted to explore and get stuck in with her brother Blake I ve always wanted an older brother to explore the wilderness with Christopher is uiet yet brave and they do bounce off each other once they get past the awkward first stages of their friendshipI did feel like they forgot about their loved ones at times eg they went skinny dipping and jumped off a high rock into a rock pool randomly which i didn t understand Also the way Air kept talking about her brother Blake and the way she described his body at a certain point made me a feel a bit uncomfortable I feel like everything she did she mentioned her brother and it was like she couldn t go a second with mentioning himAlthough i found a few things that irritated me this is still a good book to read the writing style is easy to follow and it would appeal to a lot of people Also the book cover is so pretty and the astronomy side of the story was really fascinating
