Advanced Reader’s Copy Book Review: The Someday Birds

I received an Advanced Reader’s Copy of this title, and give this book three of five stars only because I adore the fact that the main character/narrator has a disability. He’s high functioning autistic, and as a former teacher and advocate, I believe that the more exposure and insight the public has to the spectrum, the better. I also feel that the character was well developed and true to life. This, for me, was the best aspect of the book.

That said, I feel the overall content and storyline is actually two of five stars. It’s described as the author’s first attempt at a YA book, but it seems that the subject matter and strong language is bit too adult for middle grade children; yet too simplistic and underdeveloped for high school and older.

I completed the book in one read, so there wasn’t a great deal of time invested, but generally speaking, I would rather have spent the time on another title.
