Book Review: Bird Face

Every now and then, you read a book that resonates with your life experience and encourages you with a dose of hope and happy endings.

Bird Face by Cynthia T. Toney is one of those books! The author sent a review copy of Bird Face to me in exchange for an honest review. Here it is:

"A delightful story filled with class, sass and hope for teens who struggle in the social scene."~Alexis A. Goring (writer@heart), in a review on

Bird Face, a young adult book written by Cynthia T. Toney is a treasure that provides an authentic look into teenage life through the eyes of the protagonist named Wendy.

The author tells the story of this young girl who desperately wants to fit in, date her crush and escape the bullying she endures on almost a day-to-day basis. But Wendy is not without help—her best friend Jennifer who manages to be popular without being a Queen Bee or a Mean Girl, always stands up for Wendy and is quick to put the bullies in their place.

A level of mystery is in this story through the leaving of sticky notes in Wendy’s school books and other places, notes that have positive words addressed to Wendy. It’s not until after the 7th note is found that Wendy discovers who the writer of these kind words is and to find out what happens next, you’ll have to read the book!

Cynthia T. Toney does a delightful job of weaving hope and sunshine into what can be a cruel and dark time for many middle school girls and she does it with class, sass and fine taste.

I recommend this book to every female, especially the target audience (teenage girls) because I believe they will be able to relate, will enjoy the read and will emerge inspired!
