Of Feathers and Friends by Darlene Haggard Davis

"Nobody loves me everybody hates me. I'm gonna eat worms." Tyler is a child of divorce and sent to live with his grandmother. He is confused, angry, and hurt. He is trying to figure out where he fits in and decides to run away. He wants to show his family that he doesn't need anyone anymore. As Tyler goes about on his adventure, he meets other kids that help him find his place in the scheme of things. As he goes about experiencing life with his new friends, he discovers how valuable friends and family can be. Although this book is written for young readers, adults can glean some treasures from the pages. Readers can find the messages about friends and family to be universal. I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I give the book 5 stars and will recommend this book.
