I loved every moment of reading about hand washing, chicken nugget eating, bird obsessed Charlie, his family and their zany cross country road trip in search of "someday birds" after their father's accident in Afghanistan. A staggeringly honest read, perfect for fans of Counting by 7s and Wonder. ~ Reviewed by Martha Cornwell
