Feather Boy by Nicky Singer Review

Robert Nobel is the type of kid most of us were in school, not picked first for sports, dorky, but with a sense of humor. Feather Boy by Nicky Singer is Robert’s story of coming of age. Robert’s class is asked to participate in a project where they are paired with an old geezer, and must connect the past with the present. Robert is pair with a woman who tells him, “You look like a boy who could fly if he wanted to.” He gets fairly obsessed with the Elders project.

Told in first person, Feather Boy by Nicky Singer is a quick, uplifting read. If I had sat down and read Feather Boy by Nicky Singer straight through, it probably would have taken me four hours. The only problem I had with this book was how British it was, not that being British is a bad thing, it just took me a few seconds to puzzle out that crisps were potato chips and chips are actually fries. Yes, so I am “daft.” Anyways, I found this story being relatable as Robert is picked on by bullies, his parents are divorced and he’s a shy, quiet kid who has courage within.

I feel Feather Boy by Nicky Singer would connect the most with middle-grade readers, as the protagonist is 13. Who knows, maybe even reluctant male readers might enjoy Feather Boy. While reading this book, I would recommend curling up with a nice cup of hot chocolate, marshmallows on top.
