Dove "Birdie" Randolph works hard to be the perfect daughter and follow the path her parents have laid out for her: She quit playing her beloved soccer, she keeps her nose buried in textbooks, and she's on track to finish high school at the top of her class. But then Birdie falls hard for Booker, a sweet boy with a troubled past...whom she knows her parents will never approve of.When her estranged aunt Carlene returns to Chicago and moves into the family's apartment above their hair salon, Birdie notices the tension building at home. Carlene is sweet, friendly, and open-minded--she's also spent decades in and out of treatment facilities for addiction. As Birdie becomes closer to both Booker and Carlene, she yearns to spread her wings. But when long-buried secrets rise to the surface, everything she's known to be true is turned upside down.

Brandy Colbert made me an instant fan the second I finished Little & Lion. It still remains one of my favourite YA reads and one of my most recommended. What Colbert does so greatly is the representation of her characters. Her books are inclusive. And she writes each character with such compassion and authenticity. 

The Revolution of Birdie Randolph is no different. With diverse characters and a realistic storyline, there will be many that will find this book relatable. Whether you are in the heart of your teenage years now or are looking back on your youth, you will find a part of yourself inside this book. Her writing style is one my my favourite qualities of her books. This story is a beautiful slow burn. She allows time for the characters' stories to unfold. No need for rushing. Everything revealed at a perfect pace. I adored Dove, aka Birdie and Laz. There closeness reminding me of my own friendships both past and present. I also loved her relationship with Booker, it was a great romantic touch to the novel but it didn't overtake the whole story. It was all just a part of Birdie's story. 

The Young Adult scene is coming alive with beautiful and diverse books, and The Revolution of Birdie Randolph is another stunning addition to the genre. I cannot wait for what else Brandy Colbert has in store!
