Dear Librarians,

Be prepared to dislike one of the main characters of THE MILK OF BIRDS, at least at the start. K.C. is too busy weaseling out of schoolwork to buy into her mother's do-good project — writing to some girl in Africa. But when K.C. finally reads the return letters, she delights in her faraway friend's wise proverbs and sharp humor. The two teens help each other discover strengths they never knew they had.
