Off-Site Reviews

Rock, Paper, Shotgun
A lot of it reminds me of the pared back, adult-esque dialogue between the teenagers in Youth in Revolt. A kind of unreal chatter I love to hear.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun
Itís Twine, but with an unusual format; itís a lesbian YA romance; and itís an exploration of how teenagers learn to define their personalities, expressed through the medium of game stats. Itís charming and polished enough that you donít have to work too hard to get into it, but thereís enough there to support further thought. You donít feel like you have to play it more than once to get a good experience, but thereís plenty to reward you if you do. Birdland demands little and yet offers much, which is a rare accomplishment for any kind of art.

spooky action at a distance
Birdland has at its heart a story about a young woman figuring out the sort of person she wants to be, and overcoming the difficulties of being shy, or weak, or scared, and maybe falling in love, and maybe solving a mystery. And all of that is encompassed in the voice of the narration, which combines a genuineness and an absurdity which effectively unites all of the disparate choices that the reader can make.
