it was ok
Read in August, 2010

This is just OK. It is the story of a disparte group of individuals who all come together via their various individual needs and like for animals and birds. Each has a disfunctional background and find comfort and protection in the group. The story is set in Toronto's Don Valley, a green space which runs north-south through metro Toronto. Is the home of coyotes, racoons, bats and birds.

The story is told through the eyes of the various characters and is somewhat hard to follow, as each chapter and sometimes sections within chapters have different points of view. There are also parts told from the point of view of a coyote, bat and racoon mixed in. I'm not really sure what is the point of the book. Finding friends in unlikely places? Finding protection and shelter? Finding love? It has more questions than answers for me.
