Tammy from Books Bones & Buffy reviewed the YA book The Weight of Feathers. Here's an excerpt from her review:
"The story seems simple at first, and yet it’s actually quite complex once you start reading. The set-up has a very strong Romeo and Juliet vibe: two feuding families, the Palomas and the Corbeaus, are both performing families, traveling from town to town with their unusual acts. But a long ago tragedy has made the two families mortal enemies, and now they avoid each other like the plague, even when they happen to end up in the same town together.
Lace Paloma has been taught all her life to never let a Corbeau touch her, or she’ll bring tragedy to her family. But in the small town of Almendro, Lace is injured during a terrible factory accident, and a boy named Cluck Corbeau saves her life. Lace finds herself swept into the mysterious world of the Corbeau family, but as she and Cluck get to know each other, Lace dreads the day that Cluck finds out who she really is: a member of the hated Paloma family. Lace and Cluck must make a choice between true love and family—not an easy choice to make."
