This book will make you want to fly!

by clarissa598 (WorldCat user published 2009-06-29) Excellent Permalink

We read a preview copy of this book in school.  It made me want to learn to fly and airplane.  I loved Bird, the girl in the story.  She and her friend Kenji are the only ones who can save the President.  You'll have to read it to find out if she does!
