Birdwing by Rafe Martin
I bought this book at the library discards sale because of the cover. I mean, that's a pretty good cover, especially for a young adult book.
And, in content, I'm glad to say it didn't disappoint. One of the most enjoyable - and certainly most unique - stories aimed at the YA audience that I've read in a while. Definitely head and shoulders above almost every other book in that category. It has a timelessness to it that was very pleasing, and a distinct lack of trendiness.
CONCLUSION: A good story told, I thought, for its own sake - which I can't help thinking is a very rare find.
