I thought this book was exceptional. I was a little leery of the parts told in the parrot's voice, but Zeno was quite charming, particularly as he grew in his understanding of the world. I loved Alya's character, so brave and also so genuine in her fears and her way of looking at the world. I thought the author did a particularly good job of capturing the complexities of a loving family in the midst of a stressful situation. I am a children's librarian and I'm hoping to use this book in my girls' book club in the spring. Usually I don't choose brand new titles because it can be hard to get enough copies from other libraries but in this case I think it will be worth the effort. Highly recommended, along with another title by Jane Kelley: Nature Girl.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
