""Replacement Child" by Judy L. Mandel is a book I recommend to anyone curious about the true story of one family who was caught up in the tragedy of the second plane crash. Judy Blume, from "In the Unlikely Event"
Judy L. Mandel was born into a family crippled by grief. But it would be years before she would discover the shocking circumstances of their loss.
In her award-winning memoir, "Replacement Child" now a "New York Times" bestseller Mandel tells the true story of a horrifying accident: A plane crashes into a family's home, leaving one daughter severely burned and another dead. The death of the child leaves a hole in the family that threatens to tear it apart. In an attempt to fill the painful gap, the parents give birth to a replacement child.
This powerful tale of love and lies, family and hope, is an intimate account of being brought into the world to provide a salve for the burns. As a child, Mandel unwittingly rides the deep and hidden currents of her family's griefuntil her discovery of this family secret, years later, changes her life forever, forcing her to confront the complex layers of her relationships with her father, mother, and sister.
