Dear Mrs. Bird by AJ Pearce

Reviewed by Holly (Library Patron)

This book was a relatively uneventful story of a young naïve woman who gets a job screening letters for an advice columnist at a woman’s magazine during war-torn London. She does not agree with the selection policy of the advice writer. As such, she decides to personally answer some of the letters and signs her superior’s name to her advice responses. Being that the main character is young and naïve her responses did not reflect wisdom or experience. In the course of this story, the main character does have a significant event that does force her to mature a bit. In my role as the reader, I found this book to be an “ok” read. I think it would have been better if the character experienced more in the course of this book. In other words it was light on plot. The author did a nice job of developing the main character. I just wanted more to happen.
