    2. You guys, I love this book so hard core It knocked me right off my feet with its unique voice, real emotions, genuine relationships between characters, and a ton In many ways it reminded me of a Sarah Dessen novel combined with the raw emotions seen in Other Words for Love by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal, and then finally mixed with all the family drama that is included in Squalor, New Mexico by Lisette Brody So yes this book reminded me of all three of these BUT it also stuck out in its own way Reg [...]

    3. The Gist of ItDescribed as a young adult novel, I felt as if On Little Wings was far deeper than the genre describes This is a story about multiple generations of women leaving, and returning, to small town Maine In the middle of a school project one afternoon, sixteen year old Jennifer finds a photograph of a young woman she does not know and this leads her to discover her mother is estranged from her sister, Jennifer s aunt, in Smithport, Maine Jennifer embarks on a Maine adventure for the sum [...]

    6. I felt very conflicted about this book On the surface, it s constructed well, and it does paint a very nice word picture, but I just couldn t connect with it deeply like I have with other books Maybe it s due to being from Maine, and knowing what Mainers are really like, and all that jazz It was a pretty valiant attempt on the part of the author Smithport is actually fictional, unfortunately for a lot of you talking about wanting to go It sounded like a lot of coastal towns along route 1, though [...]

    7. Sometimes there are books that make you fall in love with reading all over again This was one of them for me I found this at the 1 store last week in hardback and am surprised it was there although there were There were so many things I loved about this book the Maine setting and the ocean, the poetry every night, the imperfect love story, a tender and complete ending I just wanted to get back to reading it every free moment I had I m not saying the book didn t have its weakness sometimes it fe [...]

    12. So for my last hurrah of summer vacation, I read this book instead of a Sarah Dessen book for my last late night book reading of summer I didn t read another Dessen book simply because I only had 2 books left, one I didn t feel like reading last night and the new book which I want to wait to read until a time where I m slightly awake I still wanted to read a good summer romance so I picked up On Little Wings instead This book is really special to me, mainly because I met the author and got to l [...]

    14. It has been a long time since such words wove through my hair, my clothing, and my mind like sea spray in a stiff breeze On Little Wings spoke to my soul and reminded me of my own lost, bittersweet loves, my summer magic, my little death as I said good bye He waits in my memories, laughing, teasing me I was once seventeen too.More than that, the book speaks to me of another of my own wounds left unbound, years still slowly bleeding as we watch our separate lives slide away in silence How I wish [...]

    15. I d give this a 3.5 if I could To be honest, I was skeptical about this one skepticism that was only confirmed when I started reading and just couldn t get into it But I had heard and read good things so I continued to plow through I m glad I did Though it takes a little while to get going, I love the characters in this one They re so complex and real they re just really well developed Same with the story line It s romantic as in the beauty of something without being mythology Sirois doesn t try [...]

    16. This book was lovely My mother loaned it to me on her kindle It had a similar coming of age tone as some classic Madeline L Engle books I could tell the author cared about all of her characters I wanted a friend such as her best friend Cleo brilliant and loyal I loved the Jacks on the pier three old men who pestered each other and passersby and caused trouble each 4th of July by setting off illegal fireworks The plot of reconnecting two sisters with long ago hurts is true and deep Now I want to [...]

    18. After reading the glowing reviews, I was disappointed The plot was really very simple, but the author s treatment of it was overly dramatic It was very predictable and contrived.

    19. This was far too teenage angsty for me I also felt as if the whole drama was very contrived Not really a romance either so much as a crush.
