the strange and beautiful sorrows of ava lavender

Leslye Walton

“Why would you be given wings if you weren't meant to fly?” A young girl who was born with wings recounts the story of her family, as well as her current life in this story knit with magical realism. I was enchanted by the descriptions as well as the sprinkles of magic, but the story actually took a deeper, somewhat darker turn that had me shivering to the core. An unexpected, but welcome, surprise. I most definitely underestimated this book!
