Description

At thirteen, bookish Veronica Reid lives in a world inside her head, even if she isn't entirely successful at resisting the intrusions of the world outside. It's bad enough that she has to wear awful new glasses; it's downright disastrous that she'll have to spend the summer at Laughing Willows Trailer Park with her obnoxious younger brothers and unhappy mother. She can't imagine anything worse. Lonely and bored, she begins to observe the activities of the local crows, even as she gradually finds a community among the odd denizens of Laughing Willows. When violence erupts, she finds unexpected strength both inside herself and in the people--and the crows--around her. LGBTQ interest.

Editorial Review

"A precocious young girl finds her flock in Karen Molson's remarkable debut, a vividly immersive coming-of-age tale set in an Ontario trailer park one summer in 1974. Evocative and compelling, The Company of Crows gives us a bird's-eye view into the life of Veronica Reid - an introspective thirteen-year-old who is at once both naive and wise beyond her years. A touching and satisfying tale of family, friendship and first love." - Christopher diRaddo

The Company of Crows

Excellent read. Well-written first novel with plenty of plot line, twists & turns. Satisfying for all ages. Loved being taken back to the time of my youth.
