Originally published: New York: Delacorte, 2000.

From a talented new author - a short, magical and very beautiful novel about a girl who can fly.

Georgia Hansen is nearly 16 - the sixth generation of Hansen women who can fly.

Stifled by the rigid rules of grandmother Myra (no men can join the household, anyone caught flying during the day will be cast out of the family), Georgia's mother and aunts live in fear, keeping to themselves.

But as Georgia's birthday approaches when she will fly solo for the first time and undergo rituals of initiation, her Aunt Carmen - herself cast out years before - flies in, stirring up secrets from the past.

Rebellious and determined to discover the truth, Georgia commits the one unforgivable sin.

But can she find the strength and courage to face up to her grandmother - and, in so doing, find not only herself but also the true freedom of flying?
