This is a beautiful tale of girl meets boy, boy has a secret, girl is irritated by said secret until said girl learns the truth and then things get super exciting. Paulina does a lot of things right in this book starting with two words, Gregory Mason. Truth be told Gregory is not a name I equate with sexy, intriguing, or hot but I do now! Gregory is sweet, loving, and every moment he is absent I was left pining away for him. I haven't been that anxious over a character's absence since Edward in New Moon. What else does Paulina do right? Chemistry! There is such electricity between Livy and Gregory it jumps off the page and settles into your bones. Livy and Gregory have so many intelligent, witty, and laugh out loud exchanges throughout this book! Love them! And what's a good love story without a little conflict? Flightless Bird will keep you on the edge of your seat while you travel through some serious nail biting treacherous scenes. Paulina does everything right in this book! So, what are you waiting for? It's time to fly away with Livy, Gregory, and company!

It took me a while to get into 'Flightless Bird' - the book felt very long to me and I do think I would've enjoyed it more had it been more compact.
However, it featured what we see quite rarely of in YA fiction nowadays which is a realistically and carefully growing relationship between hero and heroine.

The slow pace of the book gave more than enough time for Livy and Gregory to find each other - as people, as friends, and emotionally.
Ulrich put so much time into building a strong foundation and authentic connection between the two of them and she succeeded, by far. Their relationship was neither obvious nor forced, it wasn't anything but natural and you got to experience it step-by-step and see it taking shape before your eyes.

I wasn't exactly sure where to place Livy between the person she was when falling apart due to her parents divorce, the supposed dork at school, or the girl growing close and falling for Gregory - a part of me feel like I didn't get to know her well enough.
As for Gregory, I liked that he wasn't just this perfect gentleman (which he was) but that he had a pained past, that there was something else there.

There were a couple of really sweet supporting characters such as Livy's best friend Gracie, the hip Grandma Jean, and Gregory's older sister Cecelia, whom I couldn't but adore.
Cece was just the kindest, with such a warm persona. I could absolutely not believe that she was nineteen being so incredibly motherly - always taking care of others and never asking for anything in return.

"The secret" is kept subtle throughout the story, not taking action until the latter parts of the book.

Flightless Bird was a fabulous debut novel by Paulina Ulrich. My favorite part was the way the relationship developed between Livy and Gregory. All of the characters were believable, the story was compelling and I absolutely fell in love!!

There were a few typos but none of them distracted me from the story. The beginning of the story was a little slow, but that was the result of the author painting such a detail rich story. When Livy and Gregory get together, it is MAGIC!! I dare you not to read this and cheer along!!!

The supporting characters were great. Cece and Kev were a sweet couple and the struggles in Livy's life between her mother and father going through their own difficulties was VERY realistic.

This is one of those books that after you finish it you'll be THRILLED you read it!! It is the first in a series, book 2 Broken Wing, and book 3 Fair Feathered, are already released. Congratulations Ms. Ulrich on an AWESOME debut novel!

Flightless Bird is a well-written and all around enchanting find. The characters are very real and relatable. I read wide eyed and captivated through it's action scenes and plot twists and found myself feeling deeply for the main character in her struggles, her joy, her embarrassing moments, and her every emotion. The plot is unique and thoroughly developed, allowing me to get to know and identify with the characters. It's really not just another shallow, unrealistic, fast-paced modern romance like so many today; but rather, written with wit and creativity. I'm VERY excited to see where this talented new author takes her stories.

=D

I thought this book was great and well written! Yes there were some typos here and there, but nothing that distracted me from the reading. Overall it was a good read. There were times where it was a tad slow and hard to get through, but I did enjoy it and glad I continued reading it. You gain an attachment to the characters so that really helps motivate you to keep reading through the slow areas to see what happens to them. There are a lot of details that are put into the book which help me visualize the part of the book. Such as the details in Gregory's house, the extra details just helped put it over the edge. There are definitely some nail biting scenes in this book where you are not going to want to put the book down. I spent many nights staying up pass 1:00 in the morning reading because it was so intense and I couldn't stop halfway through an intense moment.

Everything seemed so realistic and I felt like I was part of the character's life. The heartbreaks, family issues, going through high school all seem so real and was very easy to understand what the characters are going through. I didn't feel like I was just reading another book, I felt like I was going through the life experiences with each character. I could feel the emotions the characters were portraying. When a character was going through a trial or a hardship, I felt their pain. When there was a celebration or an accomplishment, I could feel and experienced that satisfaction.

Each and every character has an important role in the book, and Paulina did an amazing job portraying their roles. Through the book you just end up attaching to the character whether it is to absolutely love them or absolutely hate them.
