Uniuely told through letters from death row and third person narrative Bryan Bliss’s hard hitting third novel expertly unravels the string of events that landed a teenager in jail Luke feels like he’s been looking after Toby his entire life He patches Toby up when Toby’s father a drunk and a petty criminal beats on him he gives him a place to. 35 STARSHigh school wrestling phenom Luke and his best friend Toby are an odd pair Toby a victim of his father’s abuse and bullied at school relies on his stronger bigger friend to protect him That was then Now Luke is on death row writing Toby letters of apologyReaders don’t know why Luke is in prison we only know that he feels unworthy of the forgiveness he’s asking Whatever happened had to be awfulThe story switches between Luke’s letters and a third person narrative about the events surrounding his imprisonment Luke had way too much responsibility at home caring for his twin brothers and keeping his flaky mother on the right track His anger was palpable and justified He always seemed one step away from losing it Toby a perpetual victim lacked social skills and often seemed to provoke others In the afterward Bryan Bliss talks about witnessing an execution as a journalist and becoming an advocate against capital punishment which surprised me because he did no research about prison life for people on death row They aren’t walking around mingling with other inmates playing basketball and having face to face meetings with a nun and his lawyer When an inmate is executed he’s not roaming around the day beforehand These might seem like minor details but they distracted me from the storyAnother issue I had with WE’LL FLY AWAY is that Bliss showed all the low income families as abusive or neglectful and the parents at best incompetent at worse abusive A lot of poor people are in their circumstances through no fault of their own They love and care about their children just as much as wealthy folksWE’LL FLY AWAY is a tough but important read If Luke and Toby had told adults about their circumstances they could have prevented much pain and suffering Coach proved he would have stepped up for Luke again and againBliss’s writing kept me interested though the story did lag in the middle I wanted to know what happened to Luke and Toby and whyWE’LL FLY AWAY is a flawed but worthy story

We'll Fly AwayIngly begins to get drawn into his father’s world and falls for an older woman All their long held dreams seem to be unraveling Tense and emotional this heartbreaking novel explores family abuse sex love friendship and the lengths a person will go to protect the people they love For fans of NPR’s Serial podcast Jason Reynolds and Matt de la Peñ. 45 starsi'm a broken human beingthis was so so horrible in ways that i truly did not see coming coolimma start off with the bad stuff the romance ew very badly done in my opinion and way too rushed and sometimes i just wanted to yell some sense into them but honestly that's about everything i have to critizethe build up to the climax of the story was INSANE the two different timelines made everything so much better and luke's letters were so beautifully written it hurt my soul the friendship he and toby had was different from what you usually read about but so very touching i'm not gonna get into the ending because that was cruel in a way that definitely exceeded my expectations the last time a book made me cry this much was a little life which means a lot
