    When I was a child I was obsessed with the idea of people with wings come to think of it I still am Not angels just normal people with wings I'd always search for books with such a thing in mind; I'd get really excited if I found a book with a winged person on the cover I'd read it frantically waiting for the bit where the wings burst forth only to be dissapointed by metaphorical wings you know woo I'm emancipated from slavery I'm free So I have wings of liberty etc This book is differentIn this book the girl as the title states actually and uite literally grows wings Awesome They addressed it uite well the author never truely explains scientifically why the people have wings which probably would have fallen short of the length we are willing to stretch our believability as readers Instead she addresses the social and emotional conseuences of growing wings I mean the poor girl can no longer go to schoolThe whole thing is addressed in such a realistic way for all the growing feathery appendages thing and in a way that makes the inner girl in my the one that always wished to have wings suee Highly reccomended

    So it’s 3am and I just remembered I read this book when I was like 9 in the 3rd grade and let me tell you I am pretty sure this is the first book that I ever developed a negative opinion over Like when you’re a child it’s easy to just consume whatever books are popularyour parents read to youyou bought at the Scholastic Book Fair not really ever ‘hate’ or criticize a book I mean cmon you’re NINE But this bookI vividly remember reading it on my living room couch I was genuinely frustrated at how weird and stale the book was I think I had some innate fear of disliking books so I stuck it out finished this book but damn I really spent a Friday evening as a 9 year old wanting to fight this book Anyways wouldn’t recommend just thought I should share as this occurred like 12 years ago xoxo

    Eleven year old Linnet is growing wings from her shoulder blades She is shocked but her mother Sarah expected it; after all she began to grow wings at about the same age but her mother cut them off Linnet and Sarah don't know what to do but Linnet stumbles into a community of people like her who live in a secluded place in the mountains under the threat of exposure I thought the premise was unusual and interesting but it wasn't developed enough to really grab me It's probably meant as a coming of age novel but I wanted worldbuilding particularly near the end; the ending relies too heavily on a deus ex machina which isn't sufficiently explained and therefore isn't convincing

    Growing Wings is a young adult fantasy with a very intriguing plot about a young woman growing wings Unfortunately the plot developed at a painfully slow pace In fact just as the story became interesting the novel abruptly ended Growing Wings felt like a good short story that was tortured into becoming a young adult novel In the Kindle version there are multiple grammar and spelling errors Given the problems with the plot these errors made it even difficult to immerse myself in the heroines journey Overall an interesting idea which failed in execution

    I LOVED this book as a young teen For some reason it really resonated with me when I was going through puberty and also realizing I was pretty dang different from other kids I mean I definitely don't have wings obviously but wouldn't that be cool? Anyway if you're pubescent I highly recommend this book I haven't read it since but it's stuck with me for years I'm 25 now so at least 12 or 13 years and I just really recommend at least giving it a try

    I Love This BookI've always wanted wings Big ones small ones black ones brown ones anything would do So when I found this book I was head over heels I ate this novel up in an hour and not just because it's a fairly uick read The characters each have their own in depth personalities and back stories Characters who had to have their wings bound or chopped off characters who want to run away and join a circus characters who don't want their wings and some who do One of the main reasons I love this book is because it shares and explains different reactions to having or growing wings Some are mad some are excited and some are sad To each their own and I'm SO glad that every character isn't super happy or super angry with their wings I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good fantasy read It's a glorious novel PS If you want to read another book like this The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender is uite similar but a bit poetic It's about a girl who was born with wings and a boy who thinks he's divine and thinks she's an angel It is however uite malicious and intense so I wouldn't recommend this to young or easily upset readers Be warned that there is a triggering scene somewhere in the last few chapters so I'd have someone flip through it for you before you read it and dog ear the page if that's something that might trigger or upset you

    I loved this book so much as a kid Good idea but the ending seemed shoved into the last two chapters it was rushed and there were loose ends that hadn't been tied up With no seuel it feels incomplete Even the beginning was rushed felt as if the characters never developed It had a good premise but the execution fell off

    I read this book years and years ago when I was10 11 and didn't understand most of what I was reading emotionally I remember it being very sad and the cover haunted me ever since which is how I found it again I don't know if I'll ever re read it

    It wasn't the fast paced and suspenseful fantasy that SLJ said it was I felt it was slow and predictable but it was written well had good characters and storyline but I wished there was to it than what I read
