The Girl Who Could Fly by Victoria Forester


Book Summary

If you lived in a rural community where "normal" was prized above everything else, your parents might not be very happy to discover you could fly.  They might even send you to a special school with other students who have unusual abilities, so you could learn how to fit in to regular society.  What would happen if you decided you liked being special more than you wanted to be normal?
