What first attracted me to the book was the plot - girl loves baseball, but since there's no girls' baseball team in the town she's staying the summer at (the whole summer for the first time in her life), she must disguise herself as a boy.

Now, I'm a fan of a movie involving women and baseball - my favorite movie ever being A League of Their Own. So that's one of the reasons I picked up this book. Another one being the plot, as I have mentioned above.

I loved how it was partly predictable, partly surprise, and plenty believable with believable characters.

Any girls who are interested in baseball should definitely read this, and any older fans who aren't embarrassed to be reading a children's book should as well. Loved this! Definitely worth the money!

Phenomenal. Profound. What more can I say? this book was a life changing read or, at least it would have been if I hadn't already read Harry Potter.

Life lessons to be learned: people, like books, should not be judged solely upon how they seem. Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy, not everyone pulling you out is a friend. though sometimes they are.

Do not ever be silent, or anything else, to spare someone. Be you, very loudly. Unapologetically, you.

It’s hard to speak out when your told to be quite. When you are being bullied and manipulated left and right. Right before I started this book I prepared myself. But no matter how long I did that, my emotions soared with every turn of the page.

Plot: This is about a girl who gets sexual assaulted and told to be quite by the person that is suppose to protect her. I can’t even begin to tell you the amount of fury that continuously built up inside of me while I read this. Let me just be clear that this book is so emotional yet very vivid. The build up of hurt, the backstabbing of friends puts the reader in a vulnerable position to be taken away.

Angst: Usually, I talk about the love interest but I felt like he didn’t deserve any merit in my mind. So I’ll talk about the whirlwind of emotions instead. Prepare to have your heart ripped out. I got angry with friends and parents. I got angry with school officials and so called “boyfriend” who wanted nothing more for her to be quite so that the basketball team can go to the championships! WTH!! Yeah, I’m done here before my keyboard catches on fire…

Strength: One thing that Kate possesses is strength. She did her time, keeping quite but when she saw she couldn’t do it anymore she sang like a beautiful canary. When she thought she was alone, others came forward, singing with her. She sparked a revolution for other students and girls like her to come out. I adored this part. Kate strength to say the truth, to admit loudly what was done makes her a hero. Fact: 54% of sexual abuse case go unreported. Why? Because people hush the girls/boys up. They don’t want it to look bad or cause problems. *rolls eyes* What Kate did is amazing!

If your up for an amazing tale of a true heroine, Canary is your story. A bittersweet tale that transpires true, hurtful acts, Canary is a powerful piece of work.

If you or someone you know is a victim of sexual abuse there is hope. Visit: RAINN or Call: 1-800-656-HOPE
