Twelve-year-old Birdie Briggs loves birds. They bring her comfort when she thinks about her dad, a firefighter who was killed in the line of duty. Life without her dad isn’t easy, but at least Birdie still has Mom and Maymee, and her friends Nina and Martin. But then Maymee gets a boyfriend, Nina and Martin start dating, and Birdie’s mom starts seeing a police officer. And suddenly not even her beloved birds can lift Birdie’s spirits. Her world is changing, and Birdie wishes things would go back to how they were before. But maybe change, painful as it is, can be beautiful too. With compelling verse and a lighthearted touch, this relatable novel for tweens and young teens captures the poignancy of adolescence and shows what can happen when you let people in. Discussion questions after the story to encourage conversations about friendships, family changes, and other themes of the story. 216 pages, softcover. Ages 10 – 14.
