Praise

“The writing soars, from the pitch-perfect delineation of Robert’s wry, self-deprecating voice to the change wrought in him as he becomes ‘the sort of boy who can fly.’”—Publishers Weekly, Starred

“Singer deftly braids her plot strands together, achieving the difficult feat of making the everyday-life threads . . . effectively intertwine with the supernatural. The easygoing, plainspoken style adds appeal and brings the mystically touched story within reach of a broad range of readers.”—The Bulletin

“A British import with Cormier-like undertones that explores the twinned themes of fear and courage. . . . Singer displays a terrific ability to develop character . . . and the setting is beautifully realized. . . . But Robert’s voice, alternately wry and yearning, and the ambitious reach of the narrative carry the show.”—Kirkus Reviews

“A compelling story about courage, death, and self-forgiveness . . . delivered in Robert’s piercing, first-person narrative. . . . Vivid characterizations of his classmates round out a haunting novel.”—Booklist
