Blackbird Fly is an amazing book I have a history with it though. The first time I read this book was in third grade. I didn't understand that while at first because I was super young and it didn't really interest me, but read that again in fourth grade and I started to understand it. So now but I was a little older and I understand the problems of Apple it made more sense. so I'm going to tell you what I liked and disliked about this book if you want to read it. So what did I like about this book well firstly I loved that Apple loved the Beatlesbecause I like the Beatles I mean I've only listen to one of their songs but they sounded really good so another thing that I liked was like Apple told it in a great perspective. another thing was I felt really really like I was in the book and actually at one part,spoiler alert, but I during part whenever Alyssa had found Apple in mr.z swing choir auditions room when Mr.Z and the rest of the swing choir walked in and Alyssa accused Apple of stealing again I actually thought I was asking for a second if we awkward it was super weird but I was Apple and it was weird. So basically I think I was in the room with the listener cuz I was reading it when I'm reading I get really into my book and I'm just like wow I can't believe I'm in the book. And when she said Kelpto and Thief I got mad and it was an amazing experience. So overall I loved it.
I have so many students that are Filipino Am so it's great to finally start seeing YA novels that reflect their culture. I love how Kelly shows Apple maturing as she struggles with harassment and school and disagreements with her mom at school.
