This book is about a family who find a bird, (hence the title!) that has been badly hurt in a fight. There are lots of issues dealt with in this book including special needs, bullying, friendships and step parents. I liked the fact that the rook's recovery mirrored the ups and downs of family life and the relationships and misunderstandings that cause us to act in certain ways. I thought some of issues were dealt with very realistically and at times was quite hard hitting. The author portrayed a range of emotions which were conveyed to the reader really well.
