The Girl Who Could Fly is about a girl named Piper who lives in a small town with her mom and dad. But she is no ordinary girl, in her sleep she starts to float! Her parents take her to a doctor, but the doctor doesn’t believe her, and says nothing is wrong. After that her mom isolates Piper. She can’t play with the neighborhood kids or go to parties. She is home schooled. But one day her mom lets her go to a picnic if she promises that she won’t fly. She makes some friends, but they wonder why they never see her. At the end of the picnic, all the kids play a big game of baseball. Piper is chosen last. She never catches the ball, and she gets made fun of. She gets angry. To catch the ball, she flies, thinking they would think it cool. Everyone freaks out and runs! The next thing you know she is in the newspaper, and now the world knows. A day later a strange beautiful lady comes and asks Piper to come to a special school with kids that have powers like her. She excitedly goes with the lady. But when she gets to the school strange things happen. Will Piper save the school that seems nice but is really a prison? Can she do it alone? ….

The Girl Who Could Fly is a great and exciting book. It is full of detail and description. It is written very well. It is interesting from the start and full of suspense. It shows the great value of friendship and trust, making it more of a heartwarming book. The book has different genres: mystery and suspense, and other aspects to it. My only issue with this book is that sometimes you know something that the character doesn’t yet. For example, you already know who is evil when the character is still getting to it. But that is not an issue for everyone. In all, it is a great book, and I loved it.
