How to Fly with Broken WingsFriendBullied by Finn and his gang the Beckham Estate Boyz Willem has no choice but to jump As he flies through the air he flaps his arms wishing he could fly and escape into the clouds Instead he comes crashing down and breaks his ankleSasha angry with herself for not stopping Finn and his Boyz is determined to put things right And soon while the gangs riot on their estate Willem to Fly with MOBI #242 and Sa Read this review at Brilliant BookshelfNetgalley provided me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review The book cover and synopsis drew me in but the story did not live up to it I think it will be enjoyable for children just not great I really liked that the main character had Aspergers Syndrome I know uite a few people in real life with autism yet I rarely come across book characters with the disorder so this was refreshing in a way Unfortunately the topic wasn't addressed that much but some things such as Willem's issues with social interaction and his desire for structure felt really accurate At times it did feel like he was portrayed too much like a dimwit but every Aspergers case is different after all Apart from the autism the book addressed a lot of other themes and issues like friendship bullying abuse love civil disorder etc All these themes connected through the common interest of planes and flying I liked that it was the idea of flying that fixed all the problems in the end Further I suspect that children who love planes or the war will like the story in particular because it will be right up their allyThe one big thing that I disliked about How To Fly with Broken Wings was that it was dreadfully chaotic Not only did a lot of themes get explored a LOT also happened Too much in fact Problems were appearing left and right without ways to solve them and most of the story described the characters running around in a panic The result was that many themes or events could not be explored in depth and that everything felt rushed Moreover some events were unrealistic even for a children's book Though the execution of the story could have been better How To Fly With Broken Wings will nevertheless teach children a few things which I find valuable in a children's book This was entertaining but not brilliant so I'm giving it three stars
