Flying South by L M Elliott

“Flying South” was a delightful read for young teenagers. It was set in America’s south in the 60s and was a tale about grief, discrimination and courage. It was light although covering serious topics. The protagonist is a young girl who through her social isolation has a close friendship with the aging gardener. The story shares the lessons she learns from him, importantly the letting go of him. It dealt with the death beautifully.
I have now began two other books as well as continuing with Linda Goodman’s Gooberz, which I am surprised by how enjoyable it is. I am becoming a fan of poetry, after disliking it for so long.
