The Floating Boy and the Girl Who Couldn't Fly


The author of Mongrels and the author of The Cabin at the End of the World team up to tell a quirky and uplifting fantasy “that will enthrall young teens” (School Library Journal).   Things Mary doesn’t want to fall into: the river, high school, her mother’s life.   Things Mary does kind of want to fall into: love, the sky.   This is the story of a girl who sees a boy float away one fine day. This is the story of the girl who reaches up for that boy with her hand and with her heart. This is the story of a girl who takes on the army to save a town, who goes toe-to-toe with a mad scientist, who has to fight a plague to save her family. This is the story of a girl who would give anything to get to babysit her baby brother one more time. If she could just find him.   It’s all up in the air for now, though, and falling fast . . .   Fun, breathlessly exciting, and full of heart, Floating Boy and the Girl Who Couldn’t Fly is an unforgettable ride.   “Straddles the border between magic realism and weird science . . . an entertaining, thoughtful piece.” —Publishers Weekly   “Absolutely adorable . . . The plot was fast paced and driven and it kept me intrigued until the very end. It was [a] really light, easy read.” —Read Rant Review
