The Girl Who Could Fly
Forester, Victoria. 2008. The Girl Who Could Fly.
Piper decided to jump off of the roof. It wasn't a rash decision on her part.
The Girl Who Could Fly is an odd little book that I couldn't help enjoying. Piper McCloud, she flies. A girl who flies. When her flying catches attention, mysterious strangers show up on the family farm promising her family that they've got the perfect school for her. A school where her specialness will be appreciated. So away Piper goes. Leaving behind her family and her home. The school or institute (initials I.N.S.A.N.E) is different alright. And everyone Piper meets is unusual from the adults to her fellow classmates.
I hesitate to say anymore because I don't want to reveal too much. The plot twists are best enjoyed firsthand.
The Girl Who Could Fly is a quirkier Mysterious Benedict Society. Unique, quirky characters. Fast-paced plot. A good mix of fun.
