Just Fly Away by Andrew McCarthy

Reviewed by Katie.

The characters in this story were given a level of depth not often seen in YA fiction. Although it was far from being a cheery book, it did an amazing job of making you feel what the characters were feeling. You really got the chance to feel empathy for the characters and understand their story. It was a truly authentic and realistic look at growing up and dealing with real life.

This is a debut YA novel from an award winning director, actor and author.
