I loved "Feathers." The story has several pieces to the plot. There's the deaf brother, the mom that is expecting and Frannie isn't going to be the 'baby' anymore, besides the new white boy in the school. It's told from Frannie's point of view. Although it's set in the 1970s, it could be a story told today. In many ways it is a coming of age type story. Frannie learns to see her friends and family in different ways and from new perspectives. I highly recommend it, it's a short fast read. And I was caught up in it, and read it very fast.
I liked this book a lot as well. I liked how Frannie looked at the world and would question things. She questioned her own perspective on the world. She longed for others to take a step back and look at things differently. My only disappointment was that I was not ready for the story to end. I was caught up in it and ready to find out more about each character.
