** spoiler alert ** I changed this to five stars because i was thinking about it and talking about it with my social studies teacher and reread parts. I think that is had a super good ending and even the dull parts were interesting and i really wanted to find out what would happen to koly next. Homeless bird is about 13 year old Koly who lives in India. She is in a arranged marriage and marries Hari and very sick young man who later ends up dying. In Koly's culture a widow can not get remarried and must not go back to her family because it would bring shame. Koly's Sass or mother in law is really a witch. She is so unkind and unloving towards Koly. She ends leaving Koly in a city filled with a banded widows. Will Koly be able to find her way in this new world and will koly ever be truly happy again. Can the young boy Raji help Koly and what can a Widow do in a big city all on her own.
