Each Little Bird That Sings is a beautiful story about a girl caught between childhood and becoming a teenager, and all of pain and little triumphs that exist in that in-between state. The storytelling is quirky, full of spunk, and a lot of fun as Wiles introduces the eccentric members of the Snowberger family and reveals their history through newspaper announcements written by Comfort. As Comfort and Peach struggle to get along, Comfort also deals with the feeling of being left behind by her best friend and how to deal with the grief and love she thought she had under control. Wiles concludes the books with a heartbreaker of an ending, but it is ultimately satisfying as Comfort comes out a stronger character, full of grace and love.
Cover Comments: I love the image on this cover--it looks exactly like how Comfort is described, and the scene depicted is pretty significant to the book. I also love the clouds in the background, and how the sunbeams are shining out behind them. Beautiful!
