Staff Reviews

Dove (Birdie) Randolph has just finished her sophomore year of high school and is getting ready for a summer of SAT prep courses, helping her mom out at her hair salon, and hanging out with her best friend Laz. Starting the summer with her distant aunt moving in and a boy she likes (though is afraid to introduce to her parents), Dove begins to question her parents' strict rules. I really, really enjoyed this book. I loved Birdie's character, especially as she began to question herself and the person she'd been all her life. I also really enjoyed the (very well developed) side characters and the different relationships Birdie held with each of them. The plot was well paced and the writing was really excellent. As a high school junior, this book was extremely relatable. Birdie struggles with things that a lot of high schoolers realistically struggle with, especially her changing relationship with her parents and the level of trust she has with them. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a light, fast, well-written coming of age story. I think people across a range of ages will really be able to enjoy it.

From Stonewall Book Award winner Brandy Colbert comes a novel about first love and secrets, perfect for fans of Nina LaCour and Nicola Yoon.

Dove "Birdie" Randolph works hard to be the perfect daughter and follow the path her parents have laid out for her. She quit playing her beloved soccer, she keeps her nose buried in textbooks, and she's on track to finish high school at the top of her class. But then Birdie falls hard for Booker, a sweet boy with a troubled past, whom she knows her parents will never approve of.

When her estranged aunt Carlene returns to Chicago and moves into the family's apartment above their hair salon, Birdie notices the tension building at home. Carlene is sweet, friendly, and open-minded--and she has also spent decades in and out of treatment facilities for addiction. As Birdie becomes closer to both Booker and Carlene, she yearns to spread her wings. But when long-buried secrets rise to the surface, everything she's known to be true is turned upside down.
