Before the Fall Noah Hawley
Readers connected to this story a lot because of JFK Jr.'s deadly flight. Readers enjoyed the novel, even though the "survival" portion was a bit far fetched. It was still a good story.
The novel surrounds a plane crash that has two wealthy families aboard along with a painter. The only survivors are a young boy J.J. and the painter, Scott. Through real time and flashbacks, readers are taken through the connection between all of the characters, as well as how the plane crashed. Was it sabotage? Was it pilot error?
The end of the story is left open for Scott and Eleanor (J.J.'s aunt) to be together, maybe a sequel?
