9780142423059: Beyond the Laughing Sky

Ten year old Nashville doesn't feel like he belongs with his family, in his town, or even in this world. He was hatched from an egg his father found on the sidewalk and has grown into something not quite boy and not quite bird. Despite the support of his loving parents and his adoring sister, Junebug, Nashville wishes more than anything that he could join his fellow birds up in the sky. After all, what's the point of being part bird if you can't touch the clouds?

Review:

This is an impossibly lovely tale--but then, as Nashville, the soaring heart of this exquisite novel, learns, nothing is impossible when you follow your dreams. BEYOND THE LAUGHING SKY is a triumph.--Katherine Applegate, Newbery Award-winning author of The One and Only Ivan Readers will end the book with a new sense of possible.--Kirkus Reviews With a variety of metaphorical language and imagery, this short read engenders the theme of acceptance and aspiration of fitting in. --School Library Journal
