Product Details


“The novel deals with issues of poverty, depression, suicide, molestation, and alcoholism with delicacy, but without glossing over the harsh realities.”
School Library Journal

“Holeman addresses poverty, abuse, and depression with compassion and a perceptive eye. Eloquent and impacting, Mercy’s story is an engrossing one, charged with emotional depth.”

“Holeman’s depiction of Mercy’s inner life feels real, and many of the scenes are charged, while steering clear of melodrama. I was touched by Mercy’s Birds and I think a lot of teenagers will be too.”
Quill & Quire

“This novel is layered with imagery, drama, and an understanding of the painful emotions associated with life in an abusive and alcoholic situation…Award-winning novelist Linda Holeman has written a powerful novel that…features a strong and indomitable heroine.”
Canadian Book Review Annual
