Feathers by: Jacqueline Woodson (2007)

Frannie, the protagonist in the story, is searching for the meaning of poem she has heard in school. The poem is by Emily Dickinson and says "hope is the thing with feathers." Frannie doesn't know what that means, but she likes it.

Frannie is so occupied with other events in her life that she doesn't have much time to think about hope. Her mother has a constant fear of losing another child, her brother is deaf, there is a bully at her school, a strange boy suddenly appears at the new school who people refer to as the Jesus boy, and her friend Samantha, seems a little more holy than usual.

Frannie comes to see and experience things in a new light during the book. She begins to accept and understand things with a new outlook. Maybe she is learning the meaning to that thing with feathers.

Personally, I felt the book was okay but not terrific. I had trouble staying focused while I was reading. I feel like it is a slow read. There was not a lot of action and really no plot. I don't understand what the "point" of the book was. There were good messages conveyed in the book like accepting people for who they are, family values, overcoming fear, and standing up to bullies.
