Read in April, 2011

Payton McGregor is a sullen and rebellious 15-year old on a train bound for Edmonton. No one understands that all he wants to do is play his music. Instead his grandparents have sent him away to live with Liam, the father he has never met. Once he arrives he finds life with Liam is full of one surprise after another. The biggest surprise of all is his acceptance into the School of the Arts for the musically gifted. The man Payton never knew actually knows him better than anyone. But his first term is a bumpy one that goes by the name of Lily, who is too much like his mother for his own good. Laird handles bi-polar nature, alcoholism, drug abuse, and other sensitive issues with realism and sensitivity. More than a coming of age tale, Blackbird Flies is an enticing story about coming to terms with the hand you’ve been dealt.
