Recipient of the Michael Printz Award.
Complex but truly extraordinary, tinged with melancholy and regret,
comedy and absurdity, this novel finds wonder in the ordinary and
emerges as ultimately hopeful. It's about a lot more than what Cullen
calls, “that damn bird.” It’s about the dream of second chances.
Rosemary loved this debut novel. " I haven't been this emotionally caught
up in a novel since THE BOOK THIEF and ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN. If you
know them, you know how good this is."
