In my opinion, this is a pretty good book. I liked it for a couple reasons, one being the character of Nory. Nory remained hopeful throughout the story, in which she worked hard to keep her brother alive and powered through the starvation during the famine. After the long period of hope and suffering, she eventually learned her father was alive and received tickets to go to America. Her hope was not for nothing. Another reason was for the tough concepts the book covered. While this is fiction, it covers a devastating time in history for the Irish, in which they went through a tragedy full of starvation and financial crisis. Nory was scrambling for money to pay for rent, and her family was slowly starving as the food supply dwindled more and more. The overall message to take away from this story is that even when times are difficult, never give up hope. As mentioned earlier, Nory was a big help and attempted to spread hope where she could. Eventually, the hope paid off and lasted her until she was able to be saved. ( )

I had mixed feelings about the book Nory Ryan’s Song by Patricia Reilly Griff. This historical fiction divulges what really happened during the potato famine in Ireland. I liked this book for its point of view, language and the characters. However, I did not like the plot of the story. I liked the language of this story because the language was very engaging and descriptive. I felt as though I watched a movie instead of reading a book, because I could picture everything the book described, like Patrick’s Well, Patcheen and Anna. I could picture the houses they all lived in, and the fields when they were healthy and when they were dying. I also liked the point of view the story was told in. I liked seeing everything from Nory’s point of view. Even when she was depressed, she was still strong; she dug deep to find her inner strength that her family knew she had all along. She rarely put herself first, and when she did, she couldn’t be blamed because of the situations she was put in. Such as when she had to decide whether to buy more food or pay for a package, and she chose the package over food, because her big sister, Maggie had sent it to her, and she had been thinking about the package for weeks. I was pleasantly surprised how the book unfolded the truth: when we were told information, it was not a foreshadowing for a different outcome, or only Nory’s thoughts and opinions, instead it was always the truth. When she described a patterned horse’s footsteps, she knew it was Devlin, and she was always right! It wasn’t just what she was thinking, it was her thoughts that always ended up being facts. I thought that was an interesting way to reveal information. And I also liked this book for its characters. I liked how each of the characters unfolded in the book. How we were first introduced to Anna as an old witch, and turns out she was waiting to be the mother figure Nory needed. I liked the simple, innocent, almost flirtatious romance between Sean Red and Nory. They always had been each other’s rock and were never going to leave each other’s side. Even when Sean had to leave, he promised Nory that they would be together again someday in Brooklyn NY, on Smith Street. However, I did not enjoy the plot of the story, not because of the subject matter, but more from a reader’s satisfaction viewpoint. I wish it gave more closure. I wanted her to reach her family, there was always a sense of hopelessness around the corner, someone with the power to pull all their plans and hopes right out from under them, and how am I supposed to believe that Nory wasn’t given any trouble getting to her family in the end? I wished Anna had gone with her and Maeve, the dog. I wished we got to see all of them together in Brooklyn. Brooklyn was never discussed from the characters in Brooklyn’s point of view, only from the people of Ireland’s point of view, making it hard to believe that Brooklyn was truly a better place to be than Ireland. What if it was the same? I wanted to learn so much more of what happens next. I also wished we knew what was in her package, I wish we found out what had happened to Nory’s mother, like how she died. I wish Cat Neely had a better ending, or at least we would find out where they ended up. I had a love-hate relationship with this book. It was great in so many ways, but in other ways, I was left to guess in points at which I would have been better off knowing from the author what had happened. The big message of this story was quite pertinent. Patricia Reilly Griff’s big message to her readers is to never take anything you have for granted. History is trying to teach us a lesson, and today, we have the luxury to simply learn from it, so no one has to live through a famine like that again. Her goal was to learn everything she could during her recent trips to Ireland and pray that she could take what she had learned and tell it like it really happened so her children and grandchildren and everyone would know. She wanted everyone to know how valuable life is, and how never to take it for granted.

I certainly was expecting something different. I loved Pictures of Hollis Woods. This was quite different apart from a strong-willed girl being able to overcome some pretty harsh circumstances. Although now that I think about it, I could make an argument for some similar family/older woman plot developments. Hmmm... Something to think about. I definitely recommend this book. ( )

Nory Ryan’s Song is a very good book. It grasped me because it started off with action showing the real hardships that people in Ireland went through with losing their homes and all of their money. The characters were also very well developed and the reader immediately wants to know more about Anna and whether she really is a “witch woman”, Nory and her home life, and what will happen to all of those who owe rent to the British. The descriptions make the reader feel as if they are there with Nory, Patcheen, and Anna as they come across the black goo spreading across the potato fields and the smell it brings. I like the messages the book shows: you don’t really know someone until you see what they have gone through, and that if you are strong you can get through almost anything. Nory judged Anna as mean before working for her and finding out about her son, and she believed she wouldn’t survive until she realized she had to stay strong and help Patcheen until they were able to get on a boat and go to America. Another theme of the book is well-stated by Anna when she says “I never cared about that coin, I wanted to pass that healing on to you”, showing that helping others pays off far more than material things. That is something I have always believed in. ( )

In Ireland, 1845, life is brutal for those lacking in resources. The potato famine occurred, destroying a crop that sustained the poor. This is a small, but mighty book, and analogous to the character, it becomes a wonderful YA book that teaches the plight of the poor in Ireland and their desire to find a way out of their country to the land of plenty. Families dreamed of affording the price of tickets to come to America, and Nory Ryan's family is no exception.
The main character is young and responsible for finding food for her family while her father is away fishing in the hope of catching excess in order to not only feed the family, but find safety in a new country. ( )

I cupped his cheeks in my hands, kissed his tiny nose. "You will remember something, when you are an old man like Granda." I said it slowly, each word above the noise of his crying. "You will say that your own Nory sent you because she loved you. You will say that no one ever loved you more."
