Staff Reviews

Owen Tanner has a sparrow in his chest. Her name is Gail, and she's been with him his whole life. Marked by a difference that keeps him sheltered, Owen faces both the ugliness of a world that rejects him and the beauty of the community that loves him (and Gail!) for exactly who he is. Lund's writing is gentle and dusted with magic, and this story already feels like a fable I know by heart.

“My heart grew two sizes bigger reading this story of queer resilience and strength. Emme Lund's debut is a beautiful coming-of-age story full of magical realism and love. If you're a hugger, then you need this book.”
— Kassie King, The Novel Neighbor, Webster Groves, MO
