    This book was beautiful, I was blown away by it. This book is from three different POV’s we have Vivi, TJ and Angel and following each perspective is truly beautiful, all three are such different characters and watching their friendship blossom in a beautiful story about grief, loss, heartbreaking and healing is truly something special.Although it dealt with some really tough subjects I thought it did a brilliant job on it, we see how Vivi used...

    Wow, what a beautifully crafted book from three remarkable POVs! This book was amazing and beautiful and every way. Everything you need in a novel is in Flight Season. This book not only captured my heart, I learned a thing or two!

    This book was absolutely beautiful. The novel follows three main characters: Vivi Flannigan, a college sophomore who is struggling in school after the death of her father, TJ Carvalho, a nursing student working at his huge family's restaurant, and Ángel Solís, an orphaned immigrant from Guatemala who has a life-threatening heart condition. These three characters are thrown together when Vivi gets a summer internship at a hospital- the same hos...

    Marquardt did it again! She made me feel all sorts of wonderful emotions and delivered a beautiful story. Marquardt impressed me with her last book, The Radius of Us, and I was therefore eager to read more of her work. I was surprised to find that I could love her new book more than her last, but that is exactly what happened.•Pro: I fell for all three main characters instantly. They were all so unique, and each brought something special to thi...

    Vivi, TJ, and Ángel. Each has a story to tell.A sweet and emotional coming-of-age story. Told through alternating points of view, the three characters tell their story. Vivi has returned home for the summer after her first year away at college. It was a tough year for Vivi because her father died, plus she struggled academically. She hopes to get back on track by working as a hospital intern for the summer. TJ works hard at a hospital during the...

[4/5](Thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for providing me with an Advanced Reader Copy in exchange for an honest review!)Flight Season is a sweet read, lovingly packaged and wrapped in a soft, velvety, pink bow made of floating hearts and twittering birds.Yep.

    Solid 4.5 stars. (Half stars GR, get the memo!)Wow. I didn't expect this to be as emotionally moving as it was. I certainly didn't expect to love Vivi, TJ, and Angel as much as I did. There was nothing I didn't love about this book. Nothing.This review will be a struggle to write. I loved the characters that much.

    3.5 stars I really enjoyed Flight Season! The characters were well drawn out with solid, distinct dynamics. My only critique is, I started out this book really into it, but for some reason, I feel like my interest in it kind of waned by the end. I think I didn't really love the way the romance panned out, but definitely nothing major. Overall, a well-written book with complex characters and some pretty heavy subject matter—loss of a parent, dep...

    Brilliant story from a gifted writer. I was really blown away by the intense characters and the real and raw stories of each of the individual characters. There are 3 POVs and each is unique and different and each was so special and easy to relate to. The story is deep, powerful and one I will remember for a long time to come. A must read for all lovers of deeply woven story will wonderful characters as well as a super setting.

    Flight Season is a beautiful, heartbreaking book that had me smiling and laughing and crying, both despairing and rejoicing in humanity, and so happy just to spend a little time with these amazing characters.Vivi Flannigan has returned home from college for the summer to pull her life together. If she can stick it out at her hospital internship she might have a slim hope of passing her semester's courses. If she can help her mother get back on tr...

    A huge Thank You to St. Martin's Press via Netgalley, for allowing me to read Flight Season in exchange for an honest review. Trigger Warning: Death & GriefThe rest of this review may contain spoilers. (view spoiler)[Flight Season is a story that has three very different points of view. You may think that they might not work together, since all three personalities are incredibly different. Yet, they all fit together like a puzzle—exceedingly w...

    1970-01-01
    4.5 stars. "Flight Season" is the story of three very different people: Vivi, TJ, and Angel. Vivi is trying to fix her life after losing her beloved father. Every turn seems to throw more difficulty at her: failing grades, a mother who seems too lost in grief and flakiness to take care of things, and a general uneasy feeling about her future life path. TJ seems stuck in his family business while trying to make something of himself outside of his ...

    This captivating story wrestles with grief and death and pain we cannot control in stunning ways. I cried with the characters and was deeply moved by example to not turn away from suffering. Absolutely beautiful.

    Flight Season is a gorgeous tale of love and loss and the power of human connection to heal. This is a stay-up-way-too-late-because-you-can't-put-it-down kind of story.Main characters TJ, Vivi and Angel are strikingly drawn, so real and raw and fleshed out, I know them. More than that - I *was* them, we all were - young adults stumbling and fumbling through the transition into adulthood in all its pain and glory. I truly appreciate the focus on a...

    So this book has a fairly annoying main character, Vivi, that normally I wouldn't like and it would make me not want to finish the book. She's 100% clueless, she has no backbone, and she's just tough to love. The we have TJ, who I liked right away even if he was kind of a jerk to Vivi in the beginning. The two know each other, or TJ knows Vivi, because of a really stupid drunken night that Vivi can't remember (which is maybe OK) but TJ remembers ...

    What an absolutely beautiful book. I was expecting a fluffy YA rom-com when I picked it up, but it was so much more than that. Really sophisticated, and funny, with a timely (and absolutely devastating) story of immigration and deportation going along with the romance (and a wee bit of magical realism!). I loved the theme of grief, and how people deal with it differently, and how those who really love you will stay with you through it.

    I really enjoyed this book! I was looking for a simple read, (which this definitely was), and was pleasantly surprised. I liked all the characters, and I liked how there wasn't too much romance. I also really liked the way the author started out some of the chapters with drawings and descriptions of birds from one of the character's journals; I thought it was very unique. I really liked the way the story unfolded and I thought the ending was perf...

    This book switches between the perspectives of 3 characters: Vivi, who has almost flunked out of Yale after her father's death, and has to complete an internship at a Florida hospital in order to go back, TJ, who has almost graduated from nursing school and is working at the hospital, and Angel, an immigrant teenage heart patient at the hospital. A moving young adult novel with very real, compelling, and unique characters. I couldn't put it down....

    I fell hard for Flight Season. Loved it.Well-planned and engaging, the story is told from the point of view of three characters. Blending Vivi's birdwatcher's journal with the plot of the story, Marquardt matches various species of birds with scenes from the story, and it worked so well I actually cared about birds, which I so often overlook (Note to HS English teachers: good classroom discussion point . . . what's right in front of us that we do...

    (I received an ARC in a giveaway)This was such a good book and honestly I loved the characters so much! I feel like they came such a long way from the beginning and they didn’t change too quickly. I finished the book in a day and I don’t regret it one bit because I fell in love with these characters and the friendships formed. I cannot wait for the book to officially be released so I can get my hands on a final copy!
