The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender Review

Title: The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender

Author:  Leslye Walton

Number of Pages: 301 pages

Date Published: March 13th 2014

Publishing Company:   Candlewick Press

Summary:

Foolish love appears to be the Roux family birthright, an ominous forecast for its most recent progeny, Ava Lavender. Ava—in all other ways a normal girl—is born with the wings of a bird.

In a quest to understand her peculiar disposition and a growing desire to fit in with her peers, sixteen-year old Ava ventures into the wider world, ill-prepared for what she might discover and naïve to the twisted motives of others.

First-time author Leslye Walton has constructed a layered and unforgettable mythology of what it means to be born with hearts that are tragically, exquisitely human.
