The Lovereading4Kids comment
A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.
A haunting and magical story about the living and the dead and those who seem able to live somewhere in between. Calypso Summer is on the run. She can’t remember why and she doesn’t know how she will find safety. All she knows is that she must not get caught by the FISTS who make the rules. Finding sanctuary in the derelict hospital, Calypso finds unusual companions, including Alfie who begins to answer some of the questions that Calypso needs to understand. A cleverly unravelled story that keeps readers guessing for a long time.
If I Could Fly by Jill Hucklesby
Tender and deeply moving, If I Could Fly is an unputdownable novel with real heart. It will keep you guessing until the final page.
"Calypso Summer. Yeah, that really is my name. 'A girl with such a name is on a journey. She will have adventures,' my mother used to murmur in my ear. And I now I am on a journey. I'm running from something terrible - but I don't know what. It's like my brain has blocked it out. For now, I'm learning to survive: to break the System and not get caught. I've found a friend I can trust. Next stop, freedom. Somehow, somewhere..."
If I Could Fly is a story you'll never forget.

'Young people will enjoy the fast-paced action, sense of menace and twist that leads to the denouement. Hucklesby has written a satisfying story with a difference for this age group.' Write Away
