Birdbrain is interspersed with quotes from Conrad's Heart of Darkness (which Heidi read during the hike) and these are all very appropriate. I was less sure about the confessional snippets of Heidi's delinquent brother/5(4).

They have so much warmth and grief and genuine human emotion and it’s lovely to read and /5. Books to delight, instruct, and inspire.

It relies heavily on conjecture and offers little if any conviction. Take this quotation found near the end of the book which starts with a firm grip of the obvious,/5.
