really liked it
bookshelves: ya-lit
Read in March, 2011

This read like poetry to me. When I finished I could only crave more. I felt like the story ended abruptly and I wanted it just to go on. That is the beauty of Angela Johnson's writing though. Her books are so short and to the point yet they read like a free verse poem. They're beautiful. It was wonderful how Bird was written from three points of view and even though I figured it out really fast where the commonalities were I loved that it made me think. By the end the characters found themselves and I were able to start moving forward with their lives and this speaks volumes.

Warnings: Some swearing and delinquent activities.
