Bird - Crystal Chan

Guys! We have good news. We Sat Down has a new blogger!!!!!!


Hello everyone. I’m Courtney, and I'm new to blogging

I’ll start off by telling you a bit about me. I am moving to the UK from South Africa. I love music. I play the euphonium, which none of you have probably ever heard of until now. I like sports, anything to release energy is fun. I read a lot of fiction but I do read the odd factual book every now and then. My aunt and cousin are bloggers on ‘We Sat Down”. I just hope my blogging is as good as theirs. 

That’s pretty much all I have to say as an introduction, so I hope my reviews are useful and encourage you to read them and enjoy them as much as I did.

My first review is on the tremendous book, Bird by Crystal Chan:

Bird is about a girl, Jewel, whose brother died because of her grandfather. Her grandfather killed her brother, John, and never spoke again. Her parents ignored her for most of her life after this tragic event. She was a shy, lonely soul who needed some excitement and happiness in her life. That all changed, when….................she met John.

This book has a beautiful cover, beautiful content, beautiful story line and a beautiful ending. So all rounded, this book is rather beautiful.

Publication details: 2013, Tamarind, London, hardback

Welcome, Courtney, we're delighted to have you here; a new voice! I'm sure your blogging will be quite as 'good' as ours. I liked Bird a lot too, so maybe you and I have similar taste? 

But Courtney isn't really a stranger to We Sat Down as she's guested in the past. Here's another review that Courtney did for us a couple of years back: North of Nowhere. And here's an interview she did with the author, Liz Kessler.
