Narrator Jesse Vilinsky imbues this audiobook with heart. Raised by pigeons after being abandoned as a baby, 11-year-old Coo has never left the roof of her building or interacted with other humans. That changes when a kind widow named Tully discovers her starving during a blizzard and takes her home. Coo thrives under Tully's care, learning human language, trust, and love. But, ultimately, Coo must decide where she belongs--with humans or with her flock. Vilinsky captures the pigeons' disjointed language with quirky voices that bring their world to life. The human voices are equally distinct. Coo's sweet, little-girl voice is perfectly suited to her innocence of the human world, and Tully's kindness shines through her warm voice.
