Description
Brooklyn, 1875: Bird Mallon lives on Water Street where you can see the huge towers of the bridge to Manhattan being built. Bird wants nothing more in life than to be brave enough to be a healer, like her mother, Nory, to help her sister Annie find love, and to convince her brother, Hughie, to stop fighting for money with his street gang. And of course, she wishes that a girl would move into the empty apartment upstairs so that she can have a new friend close by. But Thomas Neary and his Pop move in upstairs. Thomas who writes about his life in his journal—his father who spends each night at the Tavern down the street, the mother he wishes he had, and the Mallon family downstairs that he desperately wants to be a part of. Thomas, who has a secret that only Bird suspects, and who turns out to be the best friend Bird could ever have.From the Hardcover edition.

      • content: Coleen Marlo takes us back to 1875 Brooklyn and the life of 13-year-old Birdie Mallon and her friend, Thomas Neary. Marlo distinguishes between the two protagonists with emotions rather than voice. Thomas is a dreamy writer who avoids his father when he drinks and longs for his missing mother. Sensitive Birdie worries about her brother's fighting, her older unmarried sister, Thomas, and her conflicting wish to heal and hatred of surgical horrors. Sad situations are strong, but they don't overwhelm characters or listeners when Marlo delivers comfort through the musical Irish accents and tender actions of Birdie's mother, Nory (the childhood heroine of NORY RYAN'S SONG).
