    review Feathers ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB FeathersThis is a superbly beautiful story set in a black community in the early 70s that deals with love bullies religion and racism in subtle and wonderful prose Frannie has an intriguing relationship with her deaf brother Sean who is just one of many examples in the book of valuing differences The Jesus Boy who comes to their school is the catalyst to self discovery for Frannie her friend Samantha and even for hanger on RayRay as he exemplifies both hope and imperfect humanity in the story The title comes from a gorgeous poem by Emily Dickinson whose words and images weave through this entire story An absolute must for children which opens their eyes to critical insights about getting along with others My 8 year old absolutely loved it

    review Feathers ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB FeathersI had high hopes for this book so my two stars may be reflective of my disappointment than of the book's overall uality It's 1971 and Frannie lives with her Deaf brother her often absent but loving father and her pregnant mom on the black side of the tracks She worries a lot about her mom who has already lost babies to miscarriages about her handsome brother who's scorned by hearing girls about her best friend who's becoming increasingly religious and about the new kid in her class a white maybe kid that all the other students call Jesus Boy because of his long hair and pale skin He's mysterious he knows sign language cries in class and stirs up all sorts of strange emotions in his classmates Frannie's best friend thinks that he may well be the Messiah redux but at the end of the book she's convinced otherwise and it's up to Frannie to didactically ruminate that perhaps Jesus is in all of us This is a shor

    review Feathers ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB FeathersI remember the first time I went white water rafting From the shoreline at the place where the boats were being put in the river didn't amount to much The water was smooth and the current was slow I had no idea what I was getting myself in to nor did I know of the ferocity of the rapids further down the river The river would surprise meAt one point on our trip down the river our guide mentioned the water's depths A river can deceive you with it's dark water; the murky dark water makes it difficult to judge how deep it really is I was surprised by how deep our river was in places and eually surprised to learn how deep some rivers are in general There is so much beneath the surfaceI euate my experience with reading Feathers to what I discovered on my riv

    review Feathers ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB FeathersI went into this book with very low expectations perhaps because of my dislike of Emily Dickinson Of all her poems I hate Hope the most But this is not a review of Dickinson It's a review of Feathers and let me just say this book is BEAUTIFUL The writing is crisp and pithy The scenarios are realistic and make sense Within a few sentences I already cared deeply about Frannie and wanted to find out what happens to her throughout the remainder of the book Unlike many modern protagonists Frannie's problems don't t

    review Feathers ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Feathers Hope is the thing with feathersFrannie's class is studying this poem and it's really gotten her thinking She has a lot to hope for She hopes that her mama won't lose the new baby growing inside her She hopes that the hearing girls will stop making moves on her deaf brother only to turn away when they find out he can't hearSet in the winter of 1971 there's still a lot of segregation All the white people live on one side of the highway and the black people live on the other side Frannie's side That's why it's so confusing when Jesus Boy shows up in class and says that he's not white that his family moved from the other side of the highway because they didn't fit in there Frannie's got a lot of thinking to do about building bridges and why you might want to experience someone else's world to connect with someone totally different than you Because really when it comes down to it we're all peopleA uiet contemplative no

    review Feathers ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB FeathersA really delightful little book that showed a lot of truths but in a very understated way Each character was drawn to show a different side of human nature apparently For by the end most characters were revealed to be other than what they at first seemed And while I first thought it was going to be a Christian parable and yes it was in its way it was than that and showed things of the spirit not of religion That is the faith full are sustained by something than what they are taught to believeand that what they are taught to believe can fail if the spirit informing it isn't ablazeSo it's a children's book that is fo
