A darkly compulsive tale of friendship and obsession. Frances Bird has been a loner for so long that she's given up on ever finding real friendship. But then she's asked to show a new girl around school, and she begins to think her luck could finally be changing. Eccentric, talkative and just a little bit posh, Alberta is not at all how Frances imagined a best friend could be. But the two girls click immediately, and it's not long before they are inseparable. Frances could not be happier. As the weeks go on, Frances finds out more about her new best friend - her past, her secrets, her plans for the future - and she starts to examine their friendship more closely. Is it, perhaps, just too good to be true?

MEDIA REVIEWS
An enjoyable and gripping read but, far and away beyond that, a novel which will stimulate thought and judgement on the part of the reader. A most impressive first novel -- Elizabeth Finlayson * School Library Association *

“A masterpiece in manipulation and obsession”

Well, that was bleak. Birdy is one of the most sinister, clever and compelling novels that I have read about the frailties and nastiness that can fester within a seemingly harmless friendship.

Yes, Vallance takes... More
