Set just before the digital revolution, Kait is a young woman searching for identity and community among the cast-outs, cast-offs, and other "misfit toys" who refer to themselves as the Yellow Birds and follow a band called the Open Road from town to town.

Just as Kait believes she has found her place among a group of Birds travelling together in a messy van, a young man with the eye-roll worthy name of Horizon sits beside her one night and alters her fragile plan for the foreseeable future.

Amidst the whirlwind of the Open Road Tour, their growing feelings for one another soar to ecstatic heights, while propelling them toward an impending reckoning with their troubled pasts.

Filled with sex, drugs, music, and even cults, readers won't be able to get enough of this bohemian love story, the groupie lifestyle, and the party within the party.

"Yellow Birds will catch hold of your heart and not let go. Vivid, compelling, and poignant. Green is an exceptional talent." --Rebecca Keenan, Journalist

Industry Reviews

"I love how much I could relate to the desire to run away with this bohemian bunch." -Maie Pauts, On-Air Personality, Boom 97.3 Radio

"Yellow Birds is about a time in a woman's life where she leaves the family she was born into and the various families she creates as she finds herself. Whether or not you were a music festival fan, you'll relate to Kait. This novel will make you want to throw on a record and maybe call your mom. Maybe." -Sarah Foster, Communications Professional & Blogger

"Yellow Birds is one of those novels that readers like me know they can't open at just any time, because once you start, everything else in your life gets put on hold. Grab a blanket, be it to curl up on the couch or to lay out on the beach, and sink in to this coming-of-age adventure." -Angella Dykstra via Goodreads

"Green's words flow like the lyrics of a song. And just like a song that makes you want to hit repeat, this story and its characters will take you back to the yet-to-be discovered version of you that was trying to find its own anthem." -Louise Gleeson, Psychotherapist and Professional Speaker
