About the Book
After the death of her father, twelve-year-old Wren finds her life thrown into upheaval. And when her mother decides to pack up the car and forces Wren to leave the only home she's ever known, the family grows even more fractured. As she and her mother struggle to build a new life, Wren must confront issues with the environment, peer pressure, bullying, and most of all, the difficulty of forgiving those who don't deserve it. A quirky, emotional middle grade novel set in Michigans Upper Peninsula, Be Light Like a Bird features well-drawn, unconventional characters and explores what it means to be a family and the secrets and lies that can tear one apart.
My Take on the Book
This was a drama filled book that really explores a coming of age of the main character that shows how strong the Wren is as a character. I know my daughter seemed to connect from the very beginning with the experiences of Wren. Even though her life experiences were very different than her own, she still seemed to connect well with the overall experiences themselves. The book had a powerful story and one that I know that my daughter was completely engrossed in and yours will be too!
