Wow. This might just be my favorite of Lisa McMann's books. Jules, the main character of the novel lives a completely normal life. That is unless you count having to drive a pizza truck to school to advertize your family’s business, or that fact that her dad suffers from depression and uses hoarding as an escape. Oh, and did I mention that she has been seeing the same terrible vision repeatedly that just happens to end with the love of her life in a body bag? McMann offers a wonderful mash up of thriller, mystery, science fiction, and modern day Romeo and Juliet romance with this book. I recommend it with the highest of praises.
In a normal neighborhood, on a typical day, the birds chirp, the dogs bark and the cats meow. When Little Brown Bird decides she doesn't want to sing the same old song, out comes a new tune that shakes up the neighborhood and changes things forever in this funny, innovative book that kids will love to read out loud.
