It’s 1990. The Happy Mondays are in the charts, a 15-year-old called Kate Moss is on the cover of the Face magazine, and Julia Roberts wears thigh-boots for the poster for a new movie called Pretty Woman.
February Kingdom is nineteen years old when she is knocked sideways by family tragedy. Then one evening in May she finds an escaped canary in her kitchen and it sparks a glimmer of hope in her. With the help of the bird called Yellow, Feb starts to feel her way out of her own private darkness, just as her aunt embarks on a passionate and all-consuming affair with a married American drama teacher.
Before I start my review I have to say how much I loved the cover, it is very 90’s which is the era this book is set in. It is a story about February Kingdom who is a young woman, at such a tender age she is hit with a family tragedy, when all looks down she finds a yellow canary in her home. It must of escaped from someone’s home but it gives her hope. Yellow as she calls it, helps her to see the light at the end of the tunnel and helps her to come to terms with what has happened and how to move on. I was very young in the 90’s so I don’t remember much but I am sure people reading this book can reminisce about that era. It didn’t have me hooked like I would of thought it would of done. The story was ok.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
