    Full review on Cracking the Cover“Sparrow Road” is an unexpected yet welcome surprise Author Sheila O’Connor doesn’t rely on popular themes or storytelling trickery Rather she uses her skills in character and scene development to tell a mature and engrossing story that celebrates middle readers’ intelligenceO’Connor’s characters come to life under her careful tutelage Josie with her “rainbow colored hair” and patchwork dresses is so full of life she seems to jump off the page And Diego becomes both a teacher and father figure to Raine as she learns to live with both the choices made for her and those she makes for herselfOne of the best things about “Sparrow Road” is that not all questions are answered Yes some things are rapped up in a nice little package but it’s also clear O’Connor’s characters are not perfect and they will continue to grow beyond the pages of this book“Sparrow Road” is a heartfelt story that reads like a modern classic making it a perfect choice for fans of reading of all ages
