Praise

★ “there is plenty to keep readers engaged in this heartfelt exploration of goodness. . . . Satisfying and life affirming: a perfect thing in the universe of juvenile fiction.”Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

★ “Through metaphor and imagery, Springstubb’s (Every Single Second) tender, sensitively written story captures the essences of places and characters, including frequently dismayed, brave Loah.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
 
“From Loah to her caretakers to her only friend, the characters have convincing backstories that shed light on their idiosyncrasies. The well-paced story, enhanced with avian information and enchantment, builds in intensity as Loa becomes more isolated and self-reliant, yet increasingly focused on others. The novel concludes in a heartening, wholly satisfying way, suitably accompanied by birdsong.”Booklist 
 
“The third-person narration manages both compassion and cleverness with direct addresses to the reader that oscillate in tone between thoughtfully poignant and drolly amused. . . . The book makes clear the distinction between loving someone and caring for them, and both Loah’s and Ellis’ experiences convey how painful the absence of either can be.”The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
