Amy"s mother was dead so shewas raised by her father and she lived Canada. Amy had never met her father. So she didn't like him. Then she found sixteen eggs. She raised eggs and born bird.

I was moved because this book descrived she grow up. She love Geese. At, first, she wasn’t alive but when she raised Geese, she is so alive.
I read this several years ago, and just plucked it off my bookcase for a second read, as I didn't remember much about it. The plot has potential, but the story in some places is too rushed and in other places too dragged out. Overall, the story line is just too bizarre to be credible, but it still kept me reading 'til the end.
