Product Details


"A frankly spellbinding love story." — The New York Times

“Eye opening and inspiring” — The Los Angles Times

The Girl With Borrowed Wings stands in a category of its own making. . . .Rossetti’s style hearkens back to Margaret Atwood’s literary prowess with humanity’s frailties, edgy humor and limitless imagination. . . .Different, quirky, memorable for all the right reasons.” — USA Today’s Happy Ever After

"Infused with an urgent hope, this glimmering love story exhilarates and refreshes." — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Rossetti was a teenager when she wrote this novel, and her connection to the stifling constraints, torn emotions, and dazzling first tastes of freedom and power that are synonymous with coming-of-age make this first novel shine….[Frenenquer is] strong, willful, passionate, and quite funny, and watching her come into her own is thrilling. A breath of fresh air." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A premise that’s unique among the stacks of paranormal romances…Feels like a breeze in the desert." — Booklist (starred review)

"Exceptional in its originality and in the luminous, funny, elegant quality of its writing. Rossetti moves from quirky, intelligent banter between teens to descriptions of sunshine, landscapes, and bodies, evoking a sharp, clear sensuality….Rossetti raises the bar for current romantic fantasies." — The Horn Book

“Told in lush, beautiful language that explores the minutiae of expression and feeling of two lost souls, this novel will resonate with readers experiencing the first flush of desire and the confusion it brings.” — School Library Journal

“As symbolic as it is magical: the possibilities presented by Sangris and his wings have the same sort of reckless freedom that often accompanies first love, heedless of the rules of the regular world.” — BCCB
