Birdie

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. In this novel in verse with a lighthearted touch, Eileen Spinelli captures the poignancy of adolescence and shows what can happen when you let people in.

Description

"Birdie’s free-verse narration is thoughtful and unhurried, and although it’s interior, it shows without telling.... A gentle look at daily beauty and at heartache that’s not caused by anyone doing anything wrong." — Kirkus Reviews
