Sing is book two in the Homeward trilogy. I did have some problems jumping right into this book. The beginning of the book, quickly jumped from character to character, trying to catch up the readers on what had transpired in the first book, Breathe. My issue with not having read the first book is that I felt like because I hadn’t read the first book that maybe it would have helped me feel a better connection with the characters. For this fact alone, I found it a bit hard to read this book and fully enjoy it. The only people I found interesting was Odessa and her sister, Moira. I thought Mrs. Bergren did a pretty good job on this book. Also because she is a fellow Coloradoan and because I did like this book, I do plan to try Mrs. Bergren again in the future.
