The Boy Who Fell Out of The Sky

I have just finished reading what must be one of the most moving books I have come across. David Dornstein had ambitions to be a great writer, but his life was cut tragically short by the Lockerbie bombing. The Boy Who Fell Out of The Sky is Ken Dornstein's attempt to reconstruct his brothers life in the years that followed.

This is a book that will speak to anyone who has brothers or sisters that have died at a young age. When you lose a sibling, you want to hold on to whatever you can as your memories of them fade with each passing year, but as you get older, you also learn things about your siblings that you never realised during their lifetime, and they aren't always things that are easy to accept.
