Snap Shot Reading: Nest

To keep blogging simple I like to share what I'm reading through a snapshot.

Today's Snap Shot:

Nest by Esther Ehrlich

For fans of Jennifer Holm (Penny from Heaven, Turtle in Paradise), a heartfelt and unforgettable middle-grade novel about an irresistible girl and her family, tragic change, and the healing power of love and friendship. In 1972 home is a cozy nest on Cape Cod for eleven-year-old Naomi “Chirp” Orenstein, her older sister, Rachel; her psychiatrist father; and her dancer mother. But then Chirp’s mom develops symptoms of a serious disease, and everything changes.
   Chirp finds comfort in watching her beloved wild birds. She also finds a true friend in Joey, the mysterious boy who lives across the street. Together they create their own private world and come up with the perfect plan: Escape. Adventure. Discovery.


  1. Sooooooo sad! Didn't buy this one, since my students prefer books that are a good deal happier.

    1. So far I'm not loving it. We'll see how the rest goes.

  2. Such a wonderful book. I loved it. And I think the cover is spectacular.

  3. This book looks like a wonderfully charming read! What a fantastic cover.
