Description
No one can explain why Ian has sprouted wings--or adjust to their huge batlike appearance. With family and friends hostile about his situation, only Anita Pickens provides Ian with the will to use his wings and to survive his ultimate decision to have them removed. Ian "is worth getting to know, and his situation is one that has intrigued children and storytellers from the days of Icarus." --C.

display_descriptionTwelve-year-old Ian has sprouted wings, and not even the doctors know why. Shunned by his family, he finds solace in a fellow outsider named Anita, who takes him to her home in the mountains. There he finds the strength to fly and the love to survive while he makes a painful decision -- should he keep his wings and his gift of fight, or remove them and become like everyone else?
