Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (5 ):

A compelling, fast-paced, and gut-wrenching story about loyalty, abuse, first love, and revenge that comes to an unexpected and devastating conclusion. Many readers of We'll Fly Away may find their hearts going out to Luke and Toby, who face such tough odds simply trying to finish high school and begin new lives.

Parents and teens may want to talk about where to place accountability for the tragic events in the novel. How much are Luke and Toby to blame for the choices they make and how much of what happens to them might be the result of coming from abusive and neglectful families?

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
