In Imperfect Birds, the third book in Anne Lamott’s bestselling trilogy, we meet Rosie Ferguson again, this time at seventeen and in her senior year of high school.
Rosie’s intelligent, athletic and beautiful – in short, everything her mother, Elizabeth, hoped she could be. But as the school year draws to a close, there are disturbing signs that the life Rosie claims to be leading is a sham.
Cracks soon begin to appear and her deception has profound consequences on her mother Elizabeth – a recovering alcoholic, and her stepfather James.
Praise for Imperfect Birds:
Lamott’s acuity when it comes to the motivations of her characters is stunning…This engrossing novel is a good antidote to “helicopter” parenting.GOOD READING MAGAZINE
