After leaving her quiet farm to attend a top-secret school for kids with unique skills, Piper McCloud enjoys the ability to fly freely with her peers, but as everyone settles in to the daily routine, it becomes clear to all at this special place that Piper has a quality even more special than the rest.
In the book jacket blurb, Stephenie Meyer summarizes THE GIRL WHO COULD FLY as a "mix of Little House on the Prairie and X-Men," which seems a fair assessment of this fantastic tale about an ordinary girl with an extraordinary gift--or, better yet, an extraordinary lift. Piper McCloud has been surreptitiously hovering around her farm in Lowland County for as long as she can remember, though her paranoid parents implore her to keep her gravity-defying talent under wraps. When the secret of Piper's aeronautic ability gets out, she is quickly corralled into a school for kids with supernormal skills, but instead of nurturing her gift, the stringent school authorities seek to suppress it. If she wants to avoid being (literally) grounded for life, Piper will have to rally her fellow adolescent anomalies into a revolt which will severely test their unique talents.
