Feather Boy by Nicky Singer centres around Robert Nobel, a quiet, sensitive and reserved boy who is still coming to terms with his parents divorce. He is also the main target of Johnathan Niker, the class bully.
When Robert begins a class project at the Mayfeild Rest Home, he meets Edith Sorrel. Edith has a deep secret within her past, which she has hidden from everyone, until she meets Robert. As the two begin to connect, Robert begins to realize he can do anything - even go to the Top Floor Flat at Chance House.
I throughly enjoyed this book. Feather Boy was rich in detail, character relationships, and showed me one clear message - you ccan do anything if you just believe in yourself.
