Sparrow by Sarah Moon

Into the Wild

Sparrow Read Online Free - Sparrow has always had a difficult time making friends. She would always rather have stayed home on the weekends with her mother, an affluent IT Executive at a Brooklyn bank, reading, or watching the birds, than playing with other kids. And that's made school a lonely experience for her. It's made LIFE a lonely experience.

But when the one teacher who really understood her -- Mrs. Wexler, the school librarian, a woman who let her eat her lunch in the library office rather than hide in a bathroom stall, a woman who shared her passion for novels and knew just the ones she'd love -- is killed in a freak car accident, Sparrow's world unravels and she's found on the roof of her school in an apparent suicide attempt.

With the help of an insightful therapist, Sparrow finally reveals the truth of her inner life. And it's here that she discovers an outlet in Rock & Roll music...

"That's when I saw them, a handful of kids scattered around the library on rugs, lying in pairs or off in a corner by themselves on a mat, piles of books beside them. It was the first time I ever wanted to join anything." "I keep waiting to feel ready to get up, and then it hits me—I'm not going t...

Thanks to the #kidlitexchange network for the free review copy of his book – all opinions are my own. I have a soft spot for Sparrow. My heart broke for her while reading this book. I think it’s going to resonate with a lot of readers. She finds herself stuck in a space where she doesn’t feel that...

Amazing. Gorgeous. Painful. Wonderful debut. Only reason it wasn’t 5 stars was because the music camp was a little deus ex machina for me- a little too convenient. But otherwise absolutely stellar. The narration and the characters were incredibly good. Including one of the best fictional therapis...

Beautiful cover for a beautiful story. Warning - it starts out slow and you're not sure you're going to get out of Sparrow's funk. But ultimately, this is a beautiful story of a young girl's navigation from fear and walling up to life.

This book is a beautiful debut. I felt Sparrows pain throughout the pages and I could definitely tell the author cares so much for her main character and may have had similar experiences as Sparrow. I enjoyed reading through Sparrow's therapy sessions; I felt Sarah captured what it's like to begi...

Sparrow won’t talk about why she was on the roof, leaving everyone to assume she was attempting suicide, although this turns out not be a suicide attempt, it was a maddening way to start a YA novel. I was initially very frustrated with fourteen year-old Sparrow. But as the book unfolds and her pr...
