Adin and Dina are best friends. They live in the beautiful countryside surrounded by cherry trees. Their favourite game is to plant cherry stones around their little village — in the cracks in the pavement and in the flowerbeds outside the post office. Then one day Adin and his family move away to the city. Will Adin and Dina’s friendship survive the new distance between them?
In this beautifully lyrical book, one story fractures into two when the friends are parted. But their lives continue to be linked as Adin finds a way to feel connected to his friend — throwing paper planes filled with cherry stones from the balcony of his tower block.
Held together by their love of cherry blossom and paper planes, Adin and Dina’s roads finally lead back to one another.
Cherry Blossom and Paper Planes is a touching story of true friendship, resilience, belief — and a little bit of magic — illuminated with stunning artwork full of seasonal detail, light and hope.
