Description from IndieBound

Sparrow has always had a difficult time making friends. She would always rather stay home on the weekends with her mother, an affluent IT executive at a Manhattan bank, reading, or watching the birds, than play with other kids. And that’s made school a lonely experience for her. It’s made LIFE a lonely experience.

But when the one teacher who really understood her — Mrs. Wexler, the school librarian, a woman who let her eat her lunch in the library office rather than hide in a bathroom stall, a woman who shared her passion for novels and knew just the ones she’d love — is killed in a freak car accident, Sparrow’s world unravels and she’s found on the roof of her school in an apparent suicide attempt.

With the help of an insightful therapist, Sparrow finally reveals the truth of her inner life. And it’s here that she discovers an outlet in rock & roll music…

Thoughts…

I’ve said before: people are complicated. Our brains are tricky things. They are difficult to control.

If your brain tell you that you can escape by flying with the birds, it’s hard to argue with it. We all escape in different ways. Flying was Sparrow’s way.
It was a great journey to see Sparrow work through her problems and take big steps to becoming the person she wants to be.
One of my favorite aspects of this book was the music. I was going to make a Spotify playlist of all the tunes mentioned, but I did a little searching first and someone beat me to it—thankfully: SPARROW Spotify playlist
