What We Are Reading This Month

All the Birds in the Sky reads like an instant classic. It soars through magic and science, good and evil and all the shades in-between; through the struggles of children against clueless parents, teachers, and spiteful kids, and the struggles of adults against a heedless society, with a love story at its heart. All the Birds explores big questions: What is really important? How are we all connected? Yet the book comes in at a weightless (and witty) 300 pages that simply fly by. I hope it takes off the way it deserves. -Sara, Atlanta
