about this item

A CCBC (Cooperative Children’s Book Center) Choices 2018 pick!

A hilariously funny and poignant debut novel, perfect for fans of Jerry Spinelli, Kat Yeh, Gary D. Schmidt, and Rebecca Stead.

When Lauren (but call him “Ren,” pretty please) Hall sees birds falling from the sky, he knows something is wrong. But just as he’s starting to worry, he realizes that the birds are plummeting toward the ground on purpose.

Turns out they’re Birmingham Roller Pigeons, and his new neighbor Sutton is training them for a competition.

Sure, it’s strange, but Ren’s best and only friend Aiden has picked this summer to start hanging with the popular kids. So Ren starts training pigeons with Sutton—what’s the worst that could happen? A bird falls on his head?

You’ll have to read Roll to find out.

I don't normally write reviews but I really enjoyed this book. I was in a reading slump and this book pulled me out. I found the characters very likeable, and it was written in a voice where I felt like I was included in the fun. I also really like that I learned about a new hobby that I knew nothin...see moreof the reviewer's review
