Review of On Little Wings

It is my distinct pleasure to introduce you to the author of a new YA novel, On Little Wings. Regina Sirois is taking the market by storm on amazon with her new literary work of art. I for one was enthralled with this book and could not put it down. I hope to have the pleasure of reading more of this author's works in the future.

   Sixteen year old Jennifer has a great life. A best friend who has been at her side since forever. A mom and dad who love her. All get shattered in a heart beat when Jennifer finds a photo in a neglected book of an aunt she never knew she had. For sixteen years, Jennifer has been led to believe she has no family. Her mother will not discuss her aunt with her because she has pretended she does not exist ever since her mother died two decades ago.
   Jennifer is determined to find her long lost aunt and visit her. Against her mother's wishes, she seeks her out and leaves her family and best friend in Nebraska and travels on her own to the coast of Maine to unite with the only link to her mother's past. Jennifer is determined to discover why her mother lied about her sister and to find the aunt she never knew she had.
   This is an absolutely fantastic read that I could not put down. I was drawn in from the start with the emotional roller coaster ride that Jennifer goes on from the time she discovers the picture of her aunt until she finds her and goes to visit. The ride doesn't stop there, it only just begins. The storyline is amazing and flows well from the beginning to the end. This is a multi-faceted story that keeps you riveted. It is a complex jumble of love stories that will bring you to tears. The characters are all complicated and intriguing. The most down to earth seems to be Jennifer's friend, Cleo. She is very level-headed for a sixteen year old. Little, the ninety something year old former actress, who is crotchety and out spoken, will have you in stitches. She is a major player who is a force to be reckoned with. Nathan Moore is an extremely intelligent neighbor of Jennifer's aunt who is in a position that no seventeen year old should be. He is forced to be a son, father, provider, friend, and protector all rolled into one. Along comes Jennifer and he now has one more female to consider. On a journey to discover her mother's true story, Jennifer just might end up finding her own.
   If you are a fan of YA literature or just enjoy a wonderful story, you are sure to enjoy this one. It will make you laugh, become angry at times, and cry. You won't want to miss this one. It is a delightful read.
   I wish to thank the author for providing me with a copy for reading and reviewing purposes. I was not required to write a positive review. I was not compensated in anyway except for receiving the book to review.

I give On Little Wings 5 out of 5 stars
