I’m participating in a blog tour for The Yellow Bird Sings by Jennifer Rosner. I’m doing two different things—a giveaway and a review. I want the giveaway to be long enough for people to see it and enter, so I’m starting it one month in advance. It will be here on my blog and I’m able to cross promote on Instagram as well! If you have an Instagram and want to enter over there, then go right ahead.
When I choose the winner on 3/4, I will message you for a mailing address. Flatiron will actually be sending out the one galley, so if you’re uncomfortable with that, then don’t enter the giveaway!
My review will also be up for this novel on 3/4! Keep your eyes open for that.
The rules for entering on Instagram will be over there.
- You must be following my blog, but please don’t follow just to unfollow. It’s rude!
- Go follow Flatiron Books on Instagram! (I will be checking once I pick a winner.)
- Tell me in the comments what your favorite bird is and why it’s your favorite. If you don’t have a favorite bird, then explain why that is, too.
About THE YELLOW BIRD SINGS
Poland, 1941. When the soldiers come to round up the Jewish men for labor duty, only half of them return. Róża knows that she must take her daughter Shira—already full of joy and music—away. The two find shelter in the hay loft of a farmer’s barn, where Shira struggles to stay still and quiet. Notes and melodies pulse inside the young girl, and it’s hard for her to resist the temptation to tap them out with her fingers and her feet. To pass the time, Róża tells Shira a story. There is a little girl who, with the help of her yellow bird, tends an enchanted garden…
With this game of make believe, Róża soothes Shira and shields her from the horrors around them. But then the day comes when their haven is no longer safe and Róża must face an impossible choice: whether to keep Shira by her side, or give her the chance to survive apart.
Inspired by the true stories of children hidden during World War II, THE YELLOW BIRD SINGS is a novel about the unbreakable bond between a mother and a daughter, the power of storytelling, and the triumph of hope in even the darkest of times.
