The Girl Who Could Fly

Doesn't everyone wish they could fly? Well, if that wish were to come true, it might cause a lot more problems than you think! Meet Piper McCloud, born to loving but simple parents who strongly believe in doing things the way they've always been done. When Piper accidentally reveals her talent, her parents are horrified that others might find out. Soon their worst fears are realized, and to protect her and themselves, they agree to have her go with Dr. Leticia Hellion to an institute that deals with children with special talents.
Is Dr. Hellion really the helpful person she presents herself to be? Is the institute (called I.N.S.A.N.E.) really there to nurture the children - or are there more sinister forces at work? Join Piper, an immensely likable, loyal, and optimistic character, as she slowly learns who she can trust, and how she can help her friends at the institute against almost insurmountable odds. This exciting adventure, written by Victoria Forester, skillfully addresses weighty themes such as good vs. evil, the limits of analytical intelligence vs. emotional intelligence, courage vs. cowardice, the supposed infallibility of adults, and staying true to yourself in the face of overwhelming opposition. The Girl Who Could Fly is highly recommended for grades 5-8.

I love this blog and the idea behind it.

The "Next Blog" button at the top can actually be taken off, and I suggest that; there are pornographic and obscene blogs that the "Next Blog" button can take you to quickly.

There is a code you can embed in the HTML to remove that button. I hope you do so soon. I will not allow my children to read the library blog posts about childrens books until that is done. Thanks.
