"Yellow Bird is a gripping story of an intelligent young woman, and how she handles the amazing situation she finds herself thrust into. The author, Jessica Fichter, has created a novel that is equally at home with action sequences, magic, and Shakespeare. The main character, Macy, is strong willed, anxious, and real. She also has a wonderful sense of humor. Yellow Bird paints vivid pictures of interesting places and multi-layered characters. This novel is in the tradition of Hunger Games, Twilight, and Harry Potter."
