Sharp words fly faster than hummingbirds. And soon it looks like both friends will be stuck proving their theories on their own. A quick, sweet read. The writing is lyrical, the characters believable and well-rounded, and the metaphor of Alba as a hummingbird is heartbreakingly perfect. Indeed, it is [the hummingbird facts] that will keep readers intrigued over and above the more common theme of friendship that binds this story, elevating this novel to a rich and thought-provoking read.
