    5 Unforgettable Stars 5 friends inseparable as preschoolers, before high school and parties and football Now seniors in high school, they are all strangers to each other Tragedy strikes and their parents die in a plane crash left alone, these 5 only have each other to relate to and lean on Josie, Jack, Archie, Harrison, and Dayana AKA the Sunnies have a lot to figure out since being out of each others lives for so long They have to face what split them apart in the first place Their answers may just be what they need to forge a new family This book was so amazing The depth of the characters was phenomenal Each one was so unique and different from the other We get to know them on a very personal level so much to the point, you actually feel like you know these characters in real life The writing was a breath of fresh air and just so on point with the subject matter.This is a book about friendship and love, its heartbreaking and funny all at the same time The author did such a fantastic job bringing these characters to life You will surely be able to relate to at least one of the characters in the book You will get lost in the pages, laugh and cry but its all worth it Overall I totally loved this one and really hope that someone picks it up and makes it into a movie Its just so good I highly recommend it Thank you to netgalley for this arc Disclaimer I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    THE YEAR THEY FELL is about the people we are when we stop pretending to be the people we think we re supposed to be.The rebel The jock The popular girl The artist The anxious overachiever Five preschool friends grow apart by senior year in high school, though their parents remain friends Four of their parents die in a plane crash on an annual trip bringing the Sunnies back together THE YEAR THEY FELL by David Kreizman is an unexpected gem of a story that didn t get much prepublication press and wasn t even on my radar until a few weeks ago Told in the teen s five points of view, I fell in love with each complex, flawed character Kreizman didn t create stereotypes, but fully fleshed out people who had real issues without easy answers.

    They bonded in pre school, but over the years, the Sunnies slowly, but surely, grew apart However, their parents remained friends and vacationed together each year It was that yearly vacation, that would forever change the lives of these five teens, and also, lead them back to one another.I was reading this on emoji day, and when prompted to describe my current read using only emojis, I replied as follows I shed quite a few tears while reading the first part of this book To have so many interconnected people simultaneously suffer such a huge loss, tears were inevitable But, I got to spend a year with these characters, and though the undercurrent of pain and loss was always there, they also experienced a lot of growth, happiness, and hope.Each character had something they needed to come to terms with in addition to the loss of their parents Archie was the adopted black son of white parents, who was trying to decide if he should seek out his biological mother Harrison lived his whole life according to his mother s exceedingly high standards, and was now left adrift without her guidance Josie had reinvented herself after she was sexually abused, but her abuser s reappearance had her shaken Jack was always made to feel as though he was never good enough, and he struggled with the guilt that he was unable to protect his sister Dayana saw herself as an outsider, and being the only one, whose parents survived, reinforced those feelings But, it was together, that they worked through their past and present It was together, that they recognized their strength It was together, that they celebrated their hopeful futures I mourned all the years they lost with one another, but I loved seeing these characters reconnect They were so much stronger together than apart, and I was glad they finally realized that The tears I shed in the beginning of this book were due to the profound sadness I felt for these teens, but those tears at the end, they were happy tears The ending was filled with so much hope and joy, and I deemed it a payoff worthy of all my tears ARC provided in exchange for an honest review BLOG INSTAGRAM TWITTER BLOGLOVIN FRIEND ME ON GOODREADS

    ORIGINAL POST A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review The Year They Fell by David Kreizman caught my attention from the start I enjoy reading young adult fiction and usually I lean towards feel good novels when I do, but The Year They Fell sounded like it was going to be dramatic and intense and I couldn t wait to read it Lucky for me Kreizman delivered.This story is not a feel good story It s the polar opposite in a way Not to say it s going to make you feel terrible, but Kreizman touches on subjects that I feel a lot of other authors don t or avoid This novel talked about the death of a parent, kids becoming orphans in the prime of their teen years when they are trying to figure out who they are and what they want to be He touches on sexual assualt, drugs, sports and their pressure to be great and the injuries that can ruin lives It talks about anger issues and depression and anxiety All these subjects that are taboo in books because they don t typically attract readers made this book so incredible I feel like there are teens everywhere that could relate to at least one of these characters that Kreizman created.My only problem with the book is at times the situation seemed slightly unbelievable Even though some were 18, I feel like it was too easy for the to push the adults out of the way Once their parents died, they basically had no rules and no supervision And someone all the bills continued to get paid even though we never hear about how they suddenly learned about mortgages and such I know they are wealthy, at least some, but it just seemed odd that the adults would leave so easily after being told by teenagers to go Otherwise, as a whole, the book was great.I m not sure I have a favorite character because each one brought so much to the table They created this perfect little dysfunctional family that in an odd way helped them all become stronger and function in their own lives The story flows smoothly even though it jumps between characters.I think anyone can enjoy this book that loves hard hitting stories about loss and trauma, but also about fighting your way back to the surface direct reference to the story Pick it up and hopefully you love it as much as I did.

    I loved this book because it s so deeply real while also being page turning addictive The premise hooked me immediately It s so true how parents often make their parent friend group in preschool and kids are so open and non judgmental and form particularly close friendships that you think will last Only they don t kids grow up with wildly diverging personalities and the pressure and anxiety as they become tweens and teens to belong creates divisions and cliques and alienation What happens when their parents yearly adult vacation ends in their plane crashing, instantly making these 5 former friends orphans It s Breakfast Club meets Party of 5 but goes way deeper into these 5 superbly drawn characters From the first paragraph, you know Kreizman is a fantastic writer There s tons of emotional depth but also so much humor and just great storytelling He weaves so many fascinating threads where you get mini mysteries that reveal and of the characters to us and to each other.This book took me right back to being a teen, the voices and issues and anxiety and relationships were so spot on that you re immediately immersed in the characters and the story But this book also makes you think About your own friendships you lost, the ones you rekindled, the categories we put ourselves or get corralled into, the assumptions we put on people because of how they seem versus what they re really experiencing inside It s like when you go to a high school reunion and learn things your classmates were going through or anxieties or experiences you never knew they had What added to the depth of this book and the addictiveness to find out what happens next, is the rare look into wildly different kids being forced to dig into all those rich and complicated layers now The stakes of the tragedy require them to go deeper than you often get to see teen characters go and it s a really beautiful and captivating and fun read that will keep you thinking long after you put the book down.

    Archie, Dayana, Harrison, Jack, and Josie were best friends in nursery school, but by high school they grew apart When their parents die in a plane crash will it bring them closer or further apart The crash forces each kid to examine the things which separated them over the years Each chapter alternates between the points of views of the five Sunnies, named for the nursery school they attended where readers see how each are coping with the tragedy The novel is at its best when it focuses on the grief each teen is going through While coping with their grief, each teen is forced to deal with things from their pasts that they rather not deal with it Readers feel each teen s grief although the book could get very dramatic at times Yet some of the dramatic moments of the novel will keep teens reading and prevents the book from becoming too depressing Each character starts out as a particular type but as the novel moves on the characters become interesting and become something than a stereotype This book is recommended for those looking for serious realistic YA fiction that doesn t get too bogged down by its own seriousness.

    Funny how friendships change Five friends from daycare who have drifted apart are brought back together when a plane carrying all of their parents crashes on a vacation to Anguilla Overcoming this loss and rekindling friendships in the base of the story, but each character has additional challenges head injury from sports, adopted and a different race from parents, obsessed with The Plan for achieving success, pill addiction and then the big one sexual abuse from a coach Then there is teenage pregnancy Then there is a potential government conspiracy A deadbeat father An affair between parents What went from overcoming loss moves onto overcoming everything It is a lot Perhaps choose your issue and go deep on that don t throw them all together The story is told from multiple perspectives, which works well, but we don t ever get to fully know any of the characters and rely on others to fill in the details It makes it hard to trust what s happening.
