The Girl Who Could Fly by Victoria Forester

“It’s the oddest/sweetest mix of Little House on
the Prairie and X-Men. I was smiling the whole
time (except for the part where I cried). . . .
Prepare to have your hear warmed.”
Stephanie Meyer, author of the Twilight saga
 “The story soars, just like Piper, with enough
loop-de-loops to keep kids uncertain about
what will come next.”
Booklist, Starred Review

decided to expand it into her first book. Originally from Ontario,
