Dashielle and I loved this story about homeschooled farm girl Piper McCloud who knows how to fly. It has creative and well-developed characters, controversial morals, elements of fantasy and great writing. A review I read somewhere said it was like X-Men for a younger generation.

I LOVED this book. Couldn't put it down and finished it in about a day. Great for all ages and recommend everyone to read it.

An awesome book! Only one thing: At the beginning, the setting is rustic to the point of feeling like a historical fiction. The end is awesome, don't be discouraged by the beginning, which can be a bit boring.

I loved this book and I want to read it again sometime

Spoiler Alert!

I just finished this book, after being stuck to it, and passed it along to my younger sister to enjoy. Piper is a strong character, with strong emotions and feelings. I like how doesn't really care about what other people think about her flying, and, even though her first escape plan doesn't work, she carries on to do her best and continues to try. Even after being imprisoned and brainwashed, she pieces back the puzzle to her life. Even without Jasper healing her, I think she could have got up and carried on with her life through her mind and loving heart. Piper finds it easy to forgive. She easily forgives Conrad after his bully like attitude to everyone, and even Dr. Hellion is forgiven by the end. Although, like it says in the book, you can't save someone who doesn't want to be saved. An awesome book. Your nose will be glued to it until the end, and even then I was still thinking about what would happen to Piper and her friends.
