Named a 2015 Morris Award finalist by YALSA, which "honors a debut book published by a first-time author writing for teens and celebrating impressive new voices in young adult literature."
Born with bird wings, Ava Lavender is well aware that love has long made fools of her family. When pious Nathanial Sorrows mistakes her bird wings for angel wings, 16-year-old Ava faces the man's growing obsession, which comes to a head with the rain and feathers that fly through the air during a nighttime summer solstice celebration.
"Magical realism, lyrical prose, and the pain and passion of human love haunt this hypnotic generational saga."
