You just can't keep a good girl down.... unless you use the proper methods. Piper McCloud can fly. Just like that. Easy as Pie. Sure, she hasn't mastered reverse propulsion and her turns are kind of sloppy, but she's real good at loop-the-loops. Problem is, the good folk of Lowland County are afraid of Piper. And her ma's at her wit's 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. School is great at first with a bunch of new friends whose skills range from super-strength to super-genius. (plus all the homemade apple pie she can eat!) 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. At turns exhilarating and terrifying, Victoria Forester's debut novel is an unforgettable story of defiance and courage about an irrepressible heroine who can, who will, who must..... fly.

The Girl Who Could Fly is a very cute book about friendship and hidden inside it, rights and freedom. This book has some hidden meanings deep inside it, if you look close enough that is.

All the characters are very well written. Piper is a bull-hearted, little lady who fights what she has been told, and does whatever she believes in, whether someone tells her to or not. I think flying power suits Piper as she is a free soul, very much like birds on the wing, as well that each super power completely matches each person.

I love how there is no romance in this novel, because it would change the storyline and ruin it completely. I think this book is pretty good for people between the ages of 8-11, and the parents of younger kids, as this is a very enjoyable book for everyone, including me!

Over all, this book is good, very good, for everyone!
