What do you do when words fail? That is one question facing seventeen-year-old KJ as he searches for answers to his best friend's death. Wilder Murray was his closest confidant and the glue that held their friend group together. When she dies, KJ and their other friends are left with a grief they have never experienced before. Often stumbling as he learns to navigate the world without his partner in crime, KJ copes by reflecting on his and Wilder's friendship with raw honesty and wit; in doing so, he comes to several conclusions about who Wilder was and what he needs to do in the wake of her death. Through KJ's anecdotes and determination to keep Wilder alive in some way, 'Paper Airplanes' is a testament of friendship, strength, and resilience.
