The Lovereading4Kids comment
Winner of the Costa Children's Book Award 2007. What the Judges said - "The world of life and death, beauty and truth seen through the eyes of a 12 year old girl. A rare and beautiful book of lasting quality – we felt this is a voice that needs to be heard and read."
The Bower Bird by Ann Kelley
A story of a young girl who refuses to let a diagnosis of a rare heart condition supress her lively spirit. Despite this, she is determined to live life to the fullest, experiencing typical adolescent problems such as love and parent troubles. While never complaining, she offers a direct and honest insight about herself and the world around her.
'The author as artist evokes people and places with delicacy, humour and truth - a novel of outstanding beauty.' THE 2007 COSTA BOOK AWARDS
'It's a lovely book - lyrical, funny, full of wisdom. Gussie is such a dear - such a delight and a wonderful character, bright and sharp and strong, never to be pitied for an instant.'
