Read this review at Brilliant BookshelfNetgalley provided me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review The book cover and synopsis drew me in but the story did not live up to it I think it will be enjoyable for children just not great I really liked that the main character had Aspergers Syndrome I know uite a few people in real life with autism yet I rarely come across book characters with the disorder so this was refreshing in a way Unfortunately the topic wasn t addressed that much but some things such as Willem s issues with social interaction and his desire for structure felt really accurate At times it did feel like he was portrayed too much like a dimwit but every Aspergers case is different after all Apart from the autism the book addressed a lot of other themes and issues like friendship bullying abuse love civil disorder etc All these themes connected through the common interest of planes and flying I liked that it was the idea of flying that fixed all the problems in the end Further I suspect that children who love planes or the war will like the story in particular because it will be right up their allyThe one big thing that I disliked about How To Fly with Broken Wings was that it was dreadfully chaotic Not only did a lot of themes get explored a LOT also happened Too much in fact Problems were appearing left and right without ways to solve them and most of the story described the characters running around in a panic The result was that many themes or events could not be explored in depth and that everything felt rushed Moreover some events were unrealistic even for a children s book Though the execution of the story could have been better How To Fly With Broken Wings will nevertheless teach children a few things which I find valuable in a children s book This was entertaining but not brilliant so I m giving it three stars uantum Physics and the Multiplicity of Mind yet I rarely come across book characters with the disorder so this was refreshing in a way Unfortunately the topic wasn t addressed that much but some things such as Willem s issues with social interaction and his desire for structure felt really accurate At times it did feel like he was portrayed too much like a dimwit but every Aspergers case is different after all Apart from the autism the book addressed a lot of other themes and issues like friendship bullying abuse love civil disorder etc All these themes connected through the common interest of planes and flying I liked that it was the idea of flying that fixed all the problems in the end Further I suspect that children who love planes or the war will like the story in particular because it will be right up their allyThe one big thing that I disliked about How To Fly with Broken Wings was that it was dreadfully chaotic Not only did a lot of themes get explored a LOT also happened Too much in fact Problems were appearing left and right without ways to solve them and most of the story described the characters running around in a panic The result was that many themes or events could not be explored in depth and that everything felt rushed Moreover some events were unrealistic even for a children s book Though the execution of the story could have been better How To Fly With Broken Wings will nevertheless teach children a few things which I find valuable in a children s book This was entertaining but not brilliant so I m giving it three stars

Tender but toneless The Best part of this young person s book is the first 10 or 15 minutes of your reading time the adorable book cover and the description of the story in the blurb itself The reader feels the warmth immediately but that s all we get Basically Willem just wants to make friends and Sasha shows him how Their friendship develops from a shared secret They both wish to fly Finn is the class bully leader of the kids Everyone does what Finn says to doSeveral themes are not fully developed Aspergers syndrome bullying socialization fitting in seeking approval blame shame worthiness vulnerability and the human desire to belong What we get instead is character Old Man Magic Man Archie He tells stories to of war flying spitfires I didn t feel the magic Most of the time I just wanted Willem to get back home to his grandmother s house drink tea and eat digestive biscuits I was ready to join in There are many wonderful books to choose from these days for young people This is not one of them GREAT BOOK COVER though

review ì How to Fly with Broken Wings ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ly friendship Because they share a secret Sasha longs to fly tooAnd when Magic Man Archie arrives with stories of war flying spitfires he will change the lives of the kids on the Beckham Estate for ever And perhaps find a way for Willem and Sasha to fly Touching on themes such as friendship and bullying this is a charming tale about overcoming obstacles and finding friendship in unlikely place. 21 stars This book something special The voice of Willem who is set the rather simple yet complex homework of finding two friends is totally engaging page turning and heartstopping Sadly the adults Staffie and Spitfire he encounters don t count as friends so he has to engage with his peers with humorous and heart wrenching conseuences The literal way Willem engages with the world is dealt with beautifully I had to pause for breath halfway through after the riots in his home estate thinking this was a 5 star book in itself but it kept going improving and I couldn t stop reading Willem s new found friend Sasha begins to find her own strength early on although there is the difficult issue of her gang member friend Finn to complicate matters There is a wonderful backstory of Spitfires and women who flew them which I must admit I thought was completely made up when reading it but it s explained in the end notes In How to Fly there are ecstatic moments shocking events and tear jerking ones Highly recommended for 10I find it difficult to find books to recommend to my 12 year old son but this is perfect for boys and girls If your child enjoys this book then I would recommend books by Jenny Valentine Older teens might want to read the Keren David series beginning with When I Was Joe I received a free pre release copy to review because I pestered the publishers after loving A Room Full of Chocolate
