Product description

Review

Praise for Blackbird Fly: “Each character in Kelly’s debut novel . . . is portrayed with remarkable authenticity. The awkwardness and intense feelings inherent to middle school are palpable. Children’s literature has been waiting for Apple Yengko―a strong, Asian-American girl whose ethnic identity simultaneously complicates and enriches her life.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Kelly deftly captures the tumultuous emotions of a preteen who is forced to grow up faster than other girls her age.” -- Kirkus Reviews

“A smart, sensitive, and resilient heroine who is authentic and relatable in her strengths and imperfections. This poignant novel would make for a particularly fine readaloud; expect visceral reactions . . . This is a must-read for those kids cringing at their own identities.” -- Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Will resonate with any student in middle school who has felt different and ostracized. The author has skillfully captured the various characters that populate Apple’s . . . school.” -- School Library Journal (starred review)

“Writing with acute sensitivity and sometimes painful realism, debut novelist Kelly skillfully captures the betrayals, tentative first crushes, and fluctuating emotions of middle school ... a true triumph.” -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“[A] delightful debut . . . Through her love of music . . . Apple starts to soar like the eponymous blackbird of her favorite Beatles song.” -- Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Kelly’s sophomore novel is both hopeful and heartfelt, but strong emotions are only part of the successful equation here. Told in Sol’s true voice, the direct dialogue brings the diverse characters to vivid life.” -- Booklist (starred review)

“[An] enchanting plot propelled by delightful narration. This book will appeal to a broad array of readers, as it has a little bit of everything-fantasy, realism, sisterhood, friendship, suspense, and humor. A charming and affecting novel about sisterhood, the magic of imagination, and perseverance.” -- School Library Journal (starred review)

“This stirring and original story ends on a credibly hopeful note while remaining firmly rooted in reality, and readers who have embraced Sol will be cautiously optimistic for her future. …Sol’s central struggles are gripping. Fans of Rita Williams-Garcia’s family…may particularly enjoy spending time with Sol.” -- Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Kelly balances the bleak and the beautiful in a novel about the multilayered bond between sisters…Kelly’s strong heroine offers hope in the face of loss.” -- Publishers Weekly --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
