I think I understand this book as magical realism explaining gender identity but most likely I am getting ahead of myself This book follows the daughter of a raven and a postman yes you read that right it is magical realism so just roll with it She has never felt like she belongs in her fathers world for she looks human but can speak in the same caws as her mother SO in order to become her true self she goes through a surgery that will give her what she ultimately has always wanted wings It shows the troubles a person will go to find and achieve their true identity while everyone around them tells them to just settle for their current form It is possible I am mostly just reading off from it than it was originally intended so maybe ignore me until having read the book

Raven GirlAn unorthodox doctor who is willing to change herComplete with Audrey Niffenegger’s bewitching etchings and paintings Raven Girl explores the bounds of transformation and possibility in a dark fairy tale full of wonderment and longi. 25 starsSo this was a very strange book Meant to be a fairytale inspired tale about the daughter of a human postman and a once injured raven who he ends up rescuing Their daughter grows up as a human but shares the mental ualities of a raven and would rather be one I liked the illustrations however the story line in uestion just didn't work well for me The use of lots of modern settings threw me off a little and I struggled to connect with the characters If you are looking for something fast paced give this one a try
