Book #46 of 2020

Title: The Last Flight

Author: Julie Clark

Thoughts: This is a quick read and the suspense really lasts through almost the whole book, until the whole story comes together in the final pages. I’m generally too impatient for suspense novels because I want to know what happens rather than waiting until the end to find out, but when you read the book in one day, I guess it doesn’t really matter either way. I really loved the themes of identity and female friendship in this book!

Favorite Lines:
“‘…solutions always appear. But you have to be brave enough to see them.'” (p. 50)

“All choices had consequences. It was what you did with those consequences that mattered.” (p. 97)

“Identity is a strange thing. Are we who we say we are, or do we become the person others see? Do they define us by what we choose to show them, or what they see despite our best attempts to conceal it?” (p. 150)

“‘It takes a long time to learn how to see the world as a place where people aren’t doing things to you.'” (p. 260)

“‘In a world crowded with noise and selfishness, you are a brilliant flash of kindness.'” (p. 271)

“If we don’t tell our own stories, we’ll never take control of the narrative.” (p. 287)

“And in it’s place, I’ll create a new life built from the scraps of memory—some true, some the wished-for imaginings of a little girl who never found her place—constructed with luck and wide beams of gratitude holding it all together.” (p. 302)
