Review: A Bird, a Girl, and a Rescue by:J. A. Myhre
About the Book:
Eleven-year-old Kiisa had no idea why her father and mother would send her to boarding school in a remote village. She wondered why they couldn't all stay together in their beautiful valley home. But no matter what she said they were firm. She must go to school, and not any school, this particular boarding school.
Kiisa's first time away from home and it proves not to seem like it will be for fun. She gets the chance to stay in a boarding school and see what it's like to be away from home and away from her family that she holds so very close to her heart. As Kiisa makes a new friend she soon realizes that her friend considers the boarding school a blessing while she does not.
Soon Kiisa unleashes the surprise her father left her in her bag and she is not quite sure what to make of this small frail thing. Definitely not food as she thought but something far more interesting. I just over 100 pages we are introduced to Kiisa. She seems like such a delight and while you think the story is about this young girl alone, you couldn't be further from the truth. She is led on an adventure she didn't expect.
The author has placed in our hands the second in the series entitled, Rwendigo Tales Series. It is a great short read that will have you wondering from page one. A great little story about A Bird, a Girl, and a Rescue.
**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
