Review The Ever After Bird

The Ever After Bird Summary ½ 2 Review The Ever After Bird Now that her father is dead CeCe McGill is left to wonder why he risked his life for the ragged slaves who came to their door in the dead of night When her uncle an ornithologist insists she accompany him to Georgia on an. I think this read is my favorite of those Rinaldi books I ve read to date The central characters CeCe her uncle and Earline are drawn out just enough to create interest in the characters while the supporting actors are not as well developed Still thinking over these three characters after having finished the book says something about the complex and compelling nature of their depictionsI was fascinated with Earline as soon as I learned she d had to swim to freedom Earline a slave and companion to a youngster knew how to swim Was she taught to better take care of her charge the master s child Was she taught by another slave There are inner city children all over America who cannot swim and drown with greater freuency than their non Black counterparts Earline knew how to swim and swam to freedom while pregnant She was tops on my fave character list from that point Such an accomplished person under the yoke of slaveryI was as surprised as CeCe by the turn of events that occurred when she stood up for Earline But she stopped the cycle of violence with which she had been raised initially by her father with her act I have read CeCe described as bratty they said they were not particularly interested in her character until much later in the story They seem to forget CeCe was an emotionally and physically abused child whose father was her bullying tormenter who could not own his own lousy character A guilty bully describes CeCe s abusive fatherUncle Alex was uite a man He was the only character that felt contrived He was too good to be true and I love him for that Every body needs a hero sometimeThe ending might have been differently done but I like the summative nature of it Rinaldi s writing does create the desire to linger in her worlds but we here in the present must push onI loved this narrative

The Ever After Bird Summary ½ 2 Review The Ever After Bird Expedition in search of the rare scarlet ibis CeCe is surprised to learn there's a second reason for their journey Along the way Uncle Alex secretly points slaves north in the direction of the Underground Railroad   ?. PlotIt has become clear that Ann s best relationships are older male mentor to a young usually early teen girl either a sister or a ward She s a past master at creating literary crushes I find one in nearly every book and her writing just can t be matched She s SO creative with her words her dialogue is never dull her plots are solid her premises intriguing her research exhaustive Thus she creates CeCe To be honest I didn t really notice the plot It escalated gradually and came to a uiet climax What was important was each little domino that fell in turn Something like slavery with all the stories and horrors is hard to portray It s really impossible to comprehend cruelty unless you are either present for it or experience it yourself CeCe portrays this well the confusion over her feelings about slavery and the slow horror she develops as she witnesses its reality In the author s note Ann Rinaldi discloses that most of the things she has CeCe witness were actual documented happenings and that she even toned some of them down for her narrativeReally the plot is an even pattern of traveling stopping at a plantation unpleasant experience traveling find something along the road stop at another plantation another unpleasant learning experience Earline causes some sort of trouble back on the road again ect Uncle Alex s ornithology and his warnings of the slaves aren t what s important here However it is interesting to see how each plantation operates and how each individual owner s view of their property is reflected in the treatment of their slavesThere are a few slightly mature moments and conversations since CeCe is a growing girl who can t keep her mouth shut and Uncle Alex is a doctor and somehow it s common for them to discuss things that might make some girls uncomfortable to read Overall it had a promising start but unraveled near the end into a rather anticlimactic finish CharactersCeCe McGill CeCe is a delightfully and also frustratingly obnoxious Rinaldi heroine She s very typical of the author in being headstrong plain spoken stubborn and tending to idolize the male who has her charge Not everything she does makes sense which I think is a weakness of plot than a weakness of character but her heart is usually in the right place even if she does disobey her uncle at nearly every turnI found her observations about slavery to be very sound and interesting Her thoughts on anything else were generally less sound and she had an annoying tendency to be very appropriately immature However her confusion over her own treatment and views of slaves were honest and thought provoking Forced by her circumstances to act as if she agreed with slavery and also to treat the slaves around her Earline included in keeping with those views she grappled convincingly with the conseuences of such powerUncle AlexRinaldi literary crush extraordinaire Much less realistic than the Rinaldi heroes of yore he comes off way to strong in the romantic category The man can do no wrong There is nothing wrong with him He s the perfect mixture of handsome strength vulnerability rightness wrongness and excels at nearly every activity known to man I didn t buy it this timeHowever his back story IS intriguing wish there was of it and he does have a very good tongue in his head when it comes to interesting dialogue He treats CeCe a little leniently than is good for her she could do on several occasions with a darn good spanking and I m not sure why he has no control whatsoever over Earline when she appears to worship the ground he walks on EarlineIncredibly confusing She was a former slave with an extraordinarily complex history CeCe often complains of not being able to understand a thing she does and I am in wholehearted agreement I can t decide if she was really complex or if she was just allowed to do anything and everything she wanted because the author needed a little action in the plot She seems like the type of character who would be difficult to control Earline does actually provide nearly all of the action with her independent defiance of the boundaries between slaves and whites She s the one who CeCe first must treat as a slave a difficult feat after how she treats CeCe in Ohio where she s free She s the one who goes on and falls in love with a white man in the middle of the Deep South She s the one who stubbornly does exactly what she s been told not to do and she s also the one who pays the steepest price even though CeCe makes a solid second when the climax eventually rolls around ConclusionThis isn t Elsie Dins or Anne of Green Gables Rinaldi s characters are usually pretty gritty and defiant They re not obedient uiet or sweet Thus there is some language a lot of disobedience and gobs of literary crushes But there s also solid history real life issues realistic characters and a refreshing lack of picture perfect scenarios It s life with a lot of great dialogue thrown in

The Ever After Bird Summary ½ 2 Review The Ever After Bird ? Set against the backdrop of the tumultuous pre Civil War South  The Ever After Bird is the story of a young woman's education about the horrors of slavery and the realization about the kind of person she wants to beco. Ever After Bird 6th YARinaldi AnnCeCe McGill recently orphaned becomes the ward of her uncle Dr Alex McGill She does not know her uncle or his wife Aunt Elise well Uncle Alex like CeCe s father is a staunch abolitionist Cece is uncomfortable with abolitionist ideas not so much because she disagrees with these ideas but because her father lost his life because of these beliefs Soon CeCe finds herself traveling from Ohio to Georgia with her uncle and his assistant Earline as Uncle Alex pursues his life long dream of painting the rare scarlet ibis also known as the Ever After bird He has heard of a place in Georgia where the ibis can be found Along the way CeCe sees first hand the treatment of the slaves and outwardly condone this treatment Although Earline is an educated and free black she must travel as CeCe s slave and is subjected to harsh treatment often by CeCe herself as they travel While I recommend this book for its engaging story and clear description of the treatment of slaves in the 1850s I found the relationship between CeCe and Earline very disturbing At times it seemed that Uncle Alex provoked the outbursts of jealously and physical scuffles between the girls for no understandable purpose Sometimes Uncle Alex was inexplicably passive and at other times he seemed to focus unnecessarily on minor details in CeCe s life He was an enigmatic character whom I sometimes liked and at other times detested Earline was even difficult to understand The violence that erupted between CeCe and Earline seemed to be unnecessary and gratuitous When CeCe intervened to protect Earline the entire situation was beyond the bounds of credibility
