Little Bird. What Is Done Out of Love
One day on the way home from school, Maya finds an injured bird. She takes the bird home with her and hides it in the big closet in her bedroom. The bird will be her secret, until it is well again and she can surprise everyone. But it’s not so simple having a big secret and having to lie to everyone around her. In Little Bird the story of Maya and the bird develops into a far-reaching, rich novel about a family whose members all carry their own secrets. Ramslie writes suggestively about the loneliness that can arise amongst those we are closest to and with virtuosity conjures up an underlying ominousness.
