If Birds Fly Back by Carlie Sorosiak
What I liked
Interspersed throughout the book is an original and creative screenplay by Grace which describes her feelings brilliantly. These scenes are the highlights of the book and the story would be lost without them.
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do with the wings.
What I didn’t like
The story is slow and the protagonists self-indulgent – while this is common in YA (young adult) characters – for an inexplicable reason it doesn’t work here.
And I don’t like who I am becoming.
Actually, none of the characters really work together, the best friends seem superficial and without chemistry, and any real substance I don’t buy the romance.
What took you so long? I have been waiting forever.
