The Discovery of Flight


Carole Giangrande‘s review

May 30, 2018
 5 stars – it was amazing
What a moving book – I couldn’t put it down. The sisters’ contrasting voices work so well – one of them in the journal of Sophie, a wry and engaging twelve-year-old and the other her older sister Libby – ill with cerebral palsy, yet writing a poetic novel (The Discovery of Flight) as a gift for Sophie about a girl who communicates telepathically with a red-tailed hawk. The soaring bird seems to embody the spirit of Libby, so locked in herself, yet as deeply connected to her sister Sophie as her fictional creation is to the hawk. This is a young adult novel, yet older adults will enjoy it, too. Give a copy to a teenager – or a sibling – you love.
