“I’m feeling restless, reckless, like flying up at night and never coming down.” –Sparrow, a normal, 14-year-old girl who occasionally likes to turn into a bird.
They find her on the rooftop. Next thing she knows, Sparrow is whisked to the hospital, charged with suicide watch, and assigned a mental therapist. No one believes that she was not about to jump. But how can her caged soul bear to stay trapped on the ground, when all Sparrow wants to do is spread her wings and soar through roaring clouds and sun-soaked sky? How can Sparrow let others into her life when she cannot embrace herself and her flaws? And as Sparrow struggles with her social anxiety, how can she prove to everyone–and herself–that she is not crazy?
Sarah Moon spins a rollercoaster ride of a novel filled with rock-and-roll, teenage angst, and lots and lots of books. Teens looking for relaxing read will be sure to find some part of themselves in beautiful, insecure, and book-loving Sparrow. Liberating and compelling, Sparrow will reach down into your soul and capture your heart.
