Praise

A 2022 Stonewall Honor Book

Almost Flying  is a thrilling celebration of all the twists and turns, breathtaking jumps and heart-pounding falls of a first crush. Dalia’s journey to self-discovery is refreshingly honest, and this entire cast of characters will steal your heart. Every middle schooler will want to take this ride.” – Maulik Pancholy, actor and Stonewall Honor-winning author of The Best At It

“Fierce and tender all at once, Almost Flying is a soaring roller coaster ride of a book that stole my breath with every heartwarming twist and each empowering turn.” –Ashley Herring Blake, Stonewall Honor-winning author of Ivy Aberdeen’s Letter to the World

“A story about the messiness of family, the confusion and awkwardness of a first crush, and the bonds that can only exist between older and younger queer teens. This charming debut had my heart soaring.” –Nicole Melleby, author of Hurricane Season and In the Role of Brie Hutchens…

“A delightfully queer-positive and engrossing road trip story.” –Booklist

“While this book contains many elements that are widely relatable, the storyline around exploring sexuality is especially resonant… A heartwarming, queer-affirming story.” Kirkus
