Paper Planes and Other Things We Lost is not only an amazing love story, but a poignant story of loss and healing. Ruby's quirkiness and her cursing polish grandmother were two of my favorite characters. The prose and story are both captivating and beautiful. I think Miller and Hayes may be my favorite writing partnership to date!
Even though this is the first book in a series, it can be read as a standalone.
I am not a crier. Then I started reading this book. It pulled so many emotions out of me! Couldn't put it down! Love, love, love this book!
