Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite 'Song Bird' is a contemporary novel by Christine M. Knight which centers on Nikki Mills, a single mother who makes a huge success as an international recording artist. A family-centered drama at heart, the novel chronicles Nikki’s life on the road and at home as her career continues to climb, and explores her relationships with her family as well as the new acquaintances that stardom has brought her way. Amidst this success, however, a dark and personal secret is waiting to be unleashed, and Nikki’s former life as Mavis Mills is always just below the surface of her new confident self. This transformative story deals with the issues of balancing one’s life and deciding what’s really important, and what’s worth striving for.  'Song Bird' is a visually rich novel with characters who leap off the page in their realism and relatability. I enjoyed the shifting perspectives that Christine M. Knight brings to the narrative, detailing the lives and inner thoughts of those around Nikki as well as the heroine herself. The secret in Nikki’s past surprised me and I found the issues of self-esteem that she dealt with to be very moving, as well as a strikingly good reflection of how the media twists celebrity culture now. I was also extremely interested in the Australian setting for the novel, and the beautiful and uniquely cultural descriptions of the country only added extra flavour to the tale. Overall, 'Song Bird' was a pleasant and vivid read with an inspiring message and a very exciting ending.

Reviewed by Heather Osborne for Readers' Favorite 'Song Bird' by Christine M. Knight is a beautifully crafted novel about fictional singer, Nikki - also known by her given name Mavis - Mills and her band. Unaccustomed to the amount of fame brought by her band’s success, the single mother struggles to balance home life and working life. All the while, Nikki strives to keep her only son, Dan, out of the spotlight. However, Nikki has a dark secret from her past that threatens to explode into the open with paparazzi unwilling to quit their media frenzy. Her family and friends are desperate to protect and counsel her, but will it be enough to keep the fragile girl they once knew safe? I truly enjoyed 'Song Bird'. I felt the characters were deep and believable. Each character played an intricate role in the lives of Nikki and Dan. I liked how Ms Knight wove in the perspective of Nikki’s son. He desperately wanted to have a traditional family and you could really feel his emotional struggle as his mother grew into her fame. I loved how Ms Knight portrayed Nikki as still having doubts about her previous status in life. The development of her character was done very subtly and it showed how a person can gradually come into their own even in stressful circumstances. The descriptions of places and clothing allowed me to picture the locations and characters with great accuracy, so much that I want to go back to Australia for a visit and see where Nikki lives. A smooth, emotional, and beautiful read, 'Song Bird' is sure to touch the hearts of many who pick up this novel.
