A middle-grade book by Valerie Sherrard.

Corbin Hayes has felt alone for as long as he can remember. His mom's illness means lost jobs, constant moves, new schools and friendships that never get to grow.

There's a gap in his life that's been waiting to be filled.

So, when a classmate offers Corbin the talking bird she can no longer keep, he's stoked.

But when things begin to spiral out of control, Corbin can no longer get his mom — or himself — through the dark period. At his lowest moment, he's forced to do the one thing he fears the most. (From Cormorant Books)
