Broken Birdie Chirpin by Adam Tarsitano Review

Title: Broken Birdie Chirpin
Author: Adam Tarsitano
Genre: Coming of Age, Humor
Pages: 192
Price: $2.99 or FREE for Prime Members

Book Synopsis:

The glam and swagger of Marc Bolan's T-Rex. The intrigue of Eddie & The Cruisers. The rock n' roll wit of Almost Famous. The coming of age angst of Stand by Me. Broken Birdie Chirpin is a rock n' roll coming of age roller coaster ride...It tells the story of a watershed year in the life of a gifted, but mostly maladjusted, teenage rock n’ roller. He embarks on a journey from mysterious loner through the upper echelons of the London music scene in search of his rock n’ roll fantasy.

The story opens at St. Thomas’ School for Blighters, where our rock n’ roller seemingly falls for Becky, a rough-around-the-edges schoolmate who sees past his shortcomings. His life is quickly complicated by an encounter with Skeffington, a high flying jock with musical aspirations of his own. The not-so-chance encounter sets in motion a series of events that will forever change each of their lives. As the summer months unfold so do the dreams and tragedies of our protagonist. Bloody hell. Even the smallest decisions define life for decades to come.


While Broken Birdie Chirpin wasn't my type of book, I can see how it would be very well received among young men. The book did have its fair share of humor and would be a great book for those looking for a light read. If you're looking for the next coming of age book for men to read, chances are you're going to enjoy this one.
