Miri Ammerman is a teenager in Elizabeth, New Jersey when three airplanes crash between December 1951 and February 1952. The story opens when she is flying back to Elizabeth to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the crashes. As she recounts the horrendous events that affect her family during those tumultuous months, the reader is drawn back to a world long gone. Through the lives of various characters, you can almost touch a long ago era when TV was in black and white; people only went to restaurants for only Sunday and special occasion dinners; and New Jersey gangsters were establishing themselves in Las Vegas.
