Migrations by Charlotte McConaghy
Wow! This book blew me away! Written in lyrical, gut wrenching prose, Migrations reaches straight for the heart and twists. Set in the near future when many species have gone extinct, one woman sets out on a journey to follow the last flock of Arctic Terns on their long migration to Antarctica. I loved all the settings and how they informed the atmosphere of the book. The main character was at once infuriating, lovable, pitiful, a coward and brave. Like a real person with some serious baggage. But the most important part of this book is to remind us of the beauty and fragility of our natural world and to never stop fighting for Her.
