Jana Zinser, author of the award-winning book, "The Children's Train," releases Fly Like a Bird
A coming-of-age story of a young white girl who fights racism and betrayal as she tries to unravel the truth about her parents' deaths and escape the town that lied to her.
By: BQB Publishing
In Fly Like A Bird, I wanted to explore the awakenings of a young girl and her struggles to make sense of the artificial unfairness placed upon many of us with the invisible bars of race, sex, poverty, and family circumstances that frequently restrict our choices and our successes.
In this story, as in real life, it is often the cruelty of just a few that stops the freedom of all. We all shelter self-doubt and insecurity within our hearts, but if we could only stand up for each other when we see injustices, we might find we end up accepting ourselves as well.
We should not shy away from differences, we should embrace them. In Iowa, if you listen, you will hear the melodious songs of so many different birds and they all belong in that glorious state that I love. Fly Like a Bird means finding your freedom to be who you are, to stand up for yourself and others, and to soar to great heights on the winds of the Iowa prairie.
