MAYDAY, by Karen Harrington

Mayday

The story: Wayne Kovok survives the plane crash, but loses his voice. Literally–he was hit in the neck by a flying laptop and sustained damage to his throat and vocal cords. So Grandpa has come to stay with Wayne and his mom and help while they recuperate. Too bad Grandpa wants to run his grandson’s life like Wayne was one of his boot camp recruits from back in the day. Too bad Wayne fills up the awkward silences in his life with random factoids–which is a lot harder to do when you have to write them on sticky notes. And too bad that life is about to change forever, with only limited warning.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Loved this one! Two thumbs way, way up!
