Why did I love this book?
Natalie Lloyd is a master storyteller. If any writers are struggling with voice, look no further than Olive, the main character in Hummingbird, to give you a tutorial. It doesn’t get much better than “I love you all more than Taco Tuesday.”
She is not only the protagonist of this book but also the most joyful main character I have ever read. The supporting characters are delightful, quirky, and well-developed.
I especially love the magical realism-infused storyline that parallels Olive’s journey of self-discovery. I have already read it twice!
