Shortlisted for the Waterstone's Book Award 2010

By turns exhilarating and terrifying this is an unforgettable story of defiance and courage starring an irrepressible heroine who can fly.

Piper McCloud can fly but that makes friends and family afraid of her. She leaves her parents’ farm to attend a top-secret, maximum-security school for kids with exceptional abilities, whose skills range from super-strength to super-genius. But Piper is special, even among the special. And there are consequences - consequences that are too dire to talk about, too crazy to consider and too dangerous to ignore.

Synopsis

The Girl Who Could Fly by Victoria Forester

Piper McCloud can fly. Just like that. Easy as pie. Problem is, the good folk of Lowland County are afraid of Piper. And her ma's at her wits' end. So it seems only fitting that she leave her parents' farm to attend a top-secret, maximum-security school for kids with exceptional abilities, whose skills range from super-strength to super-genius. But Piper is special, even among the special. And there are consequences. Consequences too dire to talk about. Too crazy to consider. And too dangerous to ignore. By turns exhilarating and terrifying, an unforgettable story of defiance and courage starring an irrepressible heroine who can, who will, who must ...fly.
