How did I get it?:
Received from the author in exchange for an honest review!
Enter the Bluebird is the story of Julie Rouge, who’s nearly 16 and can’t wait to join her mother, the masked crimefighter Red Talon, patrolling the crime-ridden streets of New Edinburgh.
Unfortunately, Julie’s mom has disappeared, and, while searching for her, Julie is going to discover that the city she calls home is even nastier, more corrupt, and riddled with toxic secrets than she ever knew.
Enter the Bluebird is a noir YA superhero novel about secrets and betrayal and violence and love.
This isn’t a book that I necessarily would’ve went for. I’m always open to trying new books though, so when I was approached to read this book, I thought I’d go for it. I thought it was a decent YA superhero read which didn’t take long to read at all. The writing is quite straight-forward and easy to read.
Enter The Bluebird is narrated by Julie, who is The Bluebird. Julie/The Bluebird is looking for her missing mother. Julie as a character felt very real and her experience of missing her mother was incredibly believable. This book wasn’t afraid to show true emotions, it didn’t beat around the bush.
I think my only problem with this book, was that I didn’t really connect with any of the characters. I’m not sure why. They were well developed and well written, but something didn’t click for me.
I’d recommend it though if you’re into Young Adult Superhero reads. It’s fun and easy to read.
