Foreword Review — Spring 2012

A magical story about a missing girl with wings who can fly—and the disparate collection of earth-bound people who come to love her. Featuring extraordinary line drawings and original, direct writing: “The city didn’t really know where it was supposed to end. It had a very frayed edge.” The lessons in this book are countless, beginning with the notion that children are as complex and as richly endowed with eccentricities as adults. A beautiful, humorously rendered story about family. Ages nine and up.
