Young adult novel about an eleven year old girl who grows wings. She learns that her mother had wings too, but they were cut off by her grandmother. When she can hide her strangeness no more, she asks her mother to take her to her grandmother so she can learn more about her past and if there are more people like her. There are but they are all in hiding, afraid of what would happen if the world knew about their existence. A self acceptance story.

An ok book about a young girl who gets her wings. Was very good in the beggining, but started to wear off in the end.
