Praise for Blue Birds:

“Composed in varying formats, the descriptive and finely crafted poems reveal the similarities the two girls share, from loved ones lost to hatred between the English and the Roanoke to a desire for peace… Fans of Karen Hesse and the author’s May B. (2012) will delight in this offering.”—Kirkus Reviews 

“A memorable account of a friendship that transcends culture and prejudice.”—Publishers Weekly

“An excellent historical offering and belongs on public and school library shelves.”—VOYA

“With two compelling main characters and an abundance of rich historical detail, Rose’s latest novel offers much to discuss and much to appreciate.”—School Library Journal

“An imaginative historical novel with two sympathetic protagonists.”—Booklist 

“Themes of fear and freedom will appeal to a wide audience.”—SLC
