Intended for young adult readers, Avi's beautiful, moving, but realistic, story appeals to everyone. Avi is adept at creating background, mood and dialogue. Moore's voice is the perfect vehicle to convey this exceptional tale. Maggie, soon to be thirteen, falls in love with a blue heron. She also learns the truth about her difficult father who is critically ill. There are relatively few characters; this makes their presentations that much more important. The differences between men, women, boys, girls all come through superbly. This lovely, uplifting story is a wise purchase for all libraries. S.G.B.
