From the Publisher:
At first it looks like a small gray ball of fluff, its head a cloud of frizzy feathers, fine as dandelion seeds. The baby bird isn’t even strong enough to spread its wings, but ten-year-old Nick is determined to save it. Together with his best friend, he coaxes the wild bird he names Marcy to eat worms and take rides on their fingers. Then he watches, amazed, as she finally opens her wings – and flies! As Marcy grows, so does Nick – forced to make some hard choices about friends and family. And for the first time he dares to ask questions about the death of his soldier father. But other questions loom in the air: Will Marcy try to fly away? And will Nick be able to let her go? | |Beautifully rendered drawings capture the poignancy and joy of this unforgettable story about growing up, loving, and letting go.

Praise

"The flowing narration, alight with visual detail, is reflected in Bowman's soft pencil illustrations, aglow with clear sentiment. Loss settles on the page with a longing that only time and reflection can heal, and that only a top-notch writer can create." 08/15/2006
