    I mean, impartially speaking, it's pretty good. Things in this book: movies, Miami, kissing, more kissing, astrophysics, missing people, love, questions about finding your place in the world, and a bird or two.

    Holy bananas, this book was good. I loved every bit of it. The famous, elderly cult writer who shows up at the old folks' home where Linny volunteers, mysteriously reappearing after three years' disappearance. The gorgeous screenplay Linny writes to cope with the fact that her sister disappeared out the window one night and hasn't been heard from since. Linny's notebook entries about people in history who disappeared... and why they came back. The excerpts from

    genius Sebastian quotes to cope with why his father disappeared. The adorable, dorky, anxiety-filled way Linny and Sebastian fall in love. All of it: magical.

    IF BIRDS FLY BACK is a love story, but it's about so much more than romantic love. It's about friendship. (

    ) It's about sisters. (

    ) It's about unexpected relationships that change you and heal you and set you free. (

    )

    The whole story was gorgeous and full of heartache and joy and poetic and beautiful, and I can't recommend it enough.

    Okay, so this book was ASTONISHINGLY good. It’s addicting and super fun and stars a duo of unforgettable characters who start the summer romance to END all other summer romances.

    Case in point: the ball-pit scene. I don’t think I’ve ever read a scene that was as swoony and perfect as that one. And then it just keeps getting better from there, with more incredible, cinematic and unforgettable scenes. This book really captures that that magical

    Okay, so this book was ASTONISHINGLY good. It’s addicting and super fun and stars a duo of unforgettable characters who start the summer romance to END all other summer romances.

    Case in point: the ball-pit scene. I don’t think I’ve ever read a scene that was as swoony and perfect as that one. And then it just keeps getting better from there, with more incredible, cinematic and unforgettable scenes. This book really captures that that magical, sun-soaked feeling of summer, and then combines it with two of the most loveable and interesting YA characters I’ve ever read about.

    Speaking of, BIRDS is dual POV, split between two very distinct and equally amazing characters: Linny and Sebastian. I adored both of them so much that they’re new all-time faves. Linny, who is trying to find out what happened to her sister, is so charming, relatable and complicated. And then there’s Sebastian, who is just everything. He’s this nerdy boy with messy hair who wears shirts that say stuff like ‘I edit Wikipedia’. He’s just the best, and I already know readers are going to fall totally in love with him.

    This book also tackles a lot of really big questions about loyalty and self-discovery and family in such thoughtful and unique ways. It’s got a really great insight into the way the people/the world works, and I love it even more for that.

    Basically: this book is just incredible. It’s extremely fun to read, has a lot of depth, and is nearly impossible to put down. I’ll just say this: Sorosiak is now an insta-buy author for me, because I’m totally in love with this book, and I need more books like it in my life.
