" Akin to The Angel Experiment, The Girl with the Silver Eyes and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, The Girl Who Could Fly is a riveting fantasy with deep elements of friendship and freedom woven into the plot. " said.

"Another recommendation from a student, I read this book in a day. There were aspects about the book I liked -- I was hooked in from the start and wanted to know what was going to happen all the way through -- but also parts that were just so, I don't know, fluffy??? Plus, I'm just really not a fan of most fantasy, so this one was going to be a hard sell for me right from the start. I didn't abandon it, so that's a pretty good rating from me right there. I'd recommend it to fantasy lovers, but I wouldn't read it again." said.

" Herkes okumalı dediğim nadir kitaplardan biri. "Okurken sürekli gülümsüyordum, ağladığım bölüm dışında." " said.

" I loved this book! It was a fun, fast read (just over 1 day for me) and I loved Piper. She was adventurous and not afraid to be true to herself. I loved that she insisted on doing the right thing, even when it was dangerous. The school that Piper goes to does remind you a little of X-Men, but there's no Professor Xavier in this book. This was Forester's first book and I hope she writes more. Kids would love this book as well as adults. " said.

" I was forced to end my reading strike (for the rest of May) when I picked this book up and innocently read the first couple of pages. While parts of the book are awkwardly written, I couldn't help but fall in love with the main character and kept reading just to make sure she ended up okay. The story was captivating and the message was good. This was a great quick read. " said.

"Piper McCloud can fly, and when the neighbors find out, a super-secret organization comes and takes her away to live with other kids (and plants and animals) with special talents. At first we are led to believe this organization (I.N.S.A.N.E.) wants to help them, but the true motives are much more sinister.

I liked this book, but I have a hard time pinning down the audience. I would say 3rd-5th grade, but there is a scene where Piper is tortured for her misbehavior and it seemed too mature compared to the rest of the book. Also, the cruelty can be intense. It would be hard to refer this book to the right reader.
" said.

"Well-written with interesting and complex characters, this book was better than its summary led me to believe. Piper McCloud is a sheltered farm girl who discovers she can fly. When she reveals this to her close-minded community, the expected fear of anything different surfaces and forces Piper into a special school with other 'gifted' children.

While presenting the age old conflict of individuality vs. conformity, this book provides complex characters and unexpected twists of plot. It is a fun, light read appropriate for children, but contains powerful lessons about the strength of the human spirit and the power of the heart.
" said.

"This book was recommended by one of my favorite authors, Stephenie Meyer. On her site she states, The Girl Who Could Fly by Victoria Forester "is the oddest/sweetest mix of Little House on the Prairie and X-Men."
The librarian likes to talk with me about the books I read and where I get my suggestions. So, when I picked up the book today - (TODAY, I read this book in a day!), I gave her Stephenie's take about it being a cross between Little House on the Prairie and the X-Men. Just saying it out loud made me feel kinda sheepish and the librarian burst with laughter. (In the library! shhhhhh!) Well, she said, "I guess that's quite a smattering of interests." And we both chuckled a while more. But Friends, it truly is fascinating, sweet, intriguing, enjoyable, imaginative, and adventurous.

If you enjoyed The Goosegirl or Princess Academy by Shannon Hale I think you'll just love this book, too.
