My Feelings:

When homeschooled farm girl Piper McCloud reveals her ability to fly, she is quickly taken to a secret government facility to be trained with other exceptional children, but she soon realizes that something is very wrong and begins working with brilliant and wealthy Conrad to escape.

My Review:
After reading The Girl with the Silver Eyes I was a bit hesitant to pick up another middle grade book. But after carefully deciding what to read in the month November, I couldn’t resist this fabulous cover and picked it up right away. I’m glad I did, because it was a fantastic middle grade read.

Piper McCloud (Don’t you just love that name?) is such a cute little girl. She’s so adorable and loves flying. Yes, flying. All of the other characters were great too, especially the villain. She was just as I pictured her to be, sneaky and smart.

The plot was great, but some chapters weren’t necessary. A lot of talking and no action. Don’t let that scare you, because it were just three/four chapters that I could have lived without. I loved that all the children got the courage to escape and the friendship they had with each other was very special.

The Girl Who Could Fly is a middle grade book that even young adults and adults will enjoy. I recommend it to everyone who wants to read an adventurous story. And to everyone who wanted to fly when they were little.

Aww this one looks really cute! I'm wary when it comes to MG books too, but sometimes I can't resist their charm. Love this cover. Glad it wasn't another silver eyes one :)

Oh I so wanted to fly as a child, not nearly as much as I wanted wings and a wand though. Sounds like a read I'd enjoy, thanks for the recommendation.

I love the cover and the title too! I think this is a MG book I would like... especially since you do! Thanks for the recommendation.

When you mentioned that you were reading this before I thought you were referring to another book since I have a different with the same title.

I love the cover of this one and since I read the occasional MG, I'll be sure to put this one on my wishlist. If I can't fly, I suppose I'll read a book about a girl who can :)
