I love birds - always have - I've had them in my home - I've watched them outside - I've listened for their calls in the early morning hours. So when I find a book about birds - I can't wait to read it. My latest read, Flyaway by Lucy Christopher, did not disappoint! This is a wonderful "bird book" - it is a sweet story and at the heart of it is a father and daughter and their love of birds. There are lots of tender moments in this book - the father is having serious heart problems and may die, Isla must learn how to deal with her father's illness, a grandfather that acts like he doesn't care for anyone, a swan that does not seem to know how to fly, and her new friend, Harry, and his possible terminal-illness. There are so many little sidelines going on in this book - but it all comes together beautifully to tell a heart-warming tale. DO not miss this one - highly recommend it!!
