Bird | [Angela Johnson]

Bird

Bird is determined and patient. So patient that she's been hiding out behind a farmhouse for weeks waiting for Cecil. Bird misses her bedroom, her friends, and especially her mother. But more than that, she misses the feeling of family, and that means finding Cecil, the stepfather who abandoned them.

Publisher's Summary

Bird is determined and patient. So patient that she's been hiding out behind a farmhouse for weeks waiting for Cecil. Bird misses her bedroom, her friends, and especially her mother. But more than that, she misses the feeling of family, and that means finding Cecil, the stepfather who abandoned them.

But the longer Bird stays in Alabama, the less hidden she becomes. She's discovered by Ethan, a boy whose heart problems have kept him sheltered from kids his own age. And she's discovered by Jay, a boy who is filled with a sadness that lightens whenever he spends time with Bird. Bird finds that her loneliness is starting to lighten too. And her feelings of family are changing. What will she do when she finally finds Cecil? And how will Bird's, Jay's, and Ethan's hearts be mended?

    "Well Written and Read"

    This book was a delight. It's not a happy feel-good story, instead it shows life in a real way through different eyes.

    "moving and beautifully told"

    This is a quietly moving story of both loss and hope...simply and effectively narrated. This one will stay with you for a long time.
