What I'm Reading
On a foggy summer night, eleven people--ten privileged, one down-on-his-luck painter--depart Martha's Vineyard on a private jet headed for New York. Sixteen minutes later, the unthinkable happens: the plane plunges into the ocean. The only survivors are Scott Burroughs--the painter--and a four-year-old boy, who is now the last remaining member of an immensely wealthy and powerful media mogul's family.
Pat says: Despite this book's excellent reviews, I almost didn't get it because I have enough of airplanes during the week with work... but now 85 or so pages in, the book is really about the people and their backstories and so far, so good.
