Somehow, this book got lost in the depths of my Kindle after reading and I didn't give it the review that it so very much deserves, so I reread the story once again, and it moved me (to tears) as much as it did the first time.

Very much a child of the 70s myself, I loved the references and I related to Chirp as she wandered on her own to watch birds - something we might be horrified at today. Ehrlich has written a story sweet and complex and painfully real with gorgeous prose. It takes on real issues - illness, depression, suicide and child abuse. Did I say it was light reading? No - this is not, and I DO think it is one you should read if your child does, because it bears discussion. But it is also a story of love and friendship. Reminiscent of the Bridge to Terabitha in the sense that it deals with loss, this IS a deep, wonderful, unforgettable tale.

I was provided an ARC through Netgalley in exchange for my honest (albeit tardy) opinion.

Such a beautifully written story that had me in tears, Chirp is a wonderful character. This book is going to stay with me for a long time and I cannot wait to share it with others. A favorite read of 2014. ( )

This is a serious but sweet middle grade novel about a girl coming to terms with her mother's illness. It didn't engage me as deeply as I hoped but I did enjoy it overall and I think it handles some difficult family issues with a nice balance of sensitivity but directness. ( )

I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for honest review.

(Ages 8–12), a memorable story about a girl, a tragic change, and the healing power of love and friendship.

In 1972, eleven-year-old Naomi “Chirp” Orenstein; her older sister, Rachel; her psychiatrist father; and her dancer mother live on Cape Cod. Everything changed as Chirp watches as the symptoms of her mother's illness worsens. Chirp escapes the confusion and pain through her adventures into the woods to watch birds. But an unlikely friendship forms between her and the boy next door. Both seeking refuge from the struggles and pain in their homes, they develop an escape plan filled with adventure and humor. Chirp's story will linger with you long after you turn the final page. ( )

4.5 stars.

Nest by Esther Ehrlich is an incredibly heartwarming and poignant novel that will make readers laugh and cry as they follow Naomi "Chirp" Orenstein's journey in the months following her mother's devastating diagnosis of a very debilitating disease. Written for children ages 10 and up, this beautifully written novel will appeal to readers of all ages.

Eleven year old Chirp enjoys a very idyllic life on Cape Cod where she loves watching wild birds. She is very close to her older sister Rachel, and she also has a pretty good relationship with her parents. Her father is a psychiatrist whose well-meaning therapeutic approach to parenting works well with Rachel, but not so much with Chirp. Her mother is a dancer who has passed her love of dance on to Chirp and they have a close, loving relationship. Chirp's happy life slowly begins to unravel in the wake of her mother's unexpected health crisis and her downward spiral after receiving a life-changing diagnosis.

Chirp is a spunky pre-teen with a mostly happy home life. Her relationship with Rachel is fun but with their mother's diagnosis and Rachel's transition into junior high, a distance begins to grow between the sisters. As their mother's physical and mental health further deteriorates, Rachel turns away from her family while Chirp finds solace in her budding friendship with her classmate and next door neighbor Joey Morell. Despite the many changes at home, Chirp remains upbeat and positive in the face of adversity until a tragedy deals a stunning blow. Unable to deal with this traumatic event, Chirp and Joey make an impetus decision that unexpectedly helps her begin the healing process.

Nest is both a simple and complex novel of family and friendship. It begins as a lighthearted story about a close knit and loving family that is faced with a crisis that eventually changes the dynamics of all of the various relationships. Esther Ehrlich touches on several serious issues with sensitivity and in simple enough terms that younger readers will have no difficulty understanding. This emotional novel is compelling and heartfelt and it remains mostly upbeat and positive despite some of the more serious undertones. Highly recommended for readers of all ages. ( )
