Reviews

There is a sweet and potent earnestness here that casts out any sort of hipper-than-thou irony and fully embraces Laurel's passion, highlighting her ambition and hard work, both as a photographer and birder. Her self-recrimination over not stopping her grandmother from going for a walk on that fateful day is believable, though misguided, and the threat of two major losses--her grandmother and the preserve--is deftly conveyed as her efforts to find the elusive bird and stop the development become more frantic. The ending is bittersweet, but Laurel's tough, and it seems likely she'll weather the winds of change just fine until bluer skies arrive. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
