Thirteen-year-old Birch's grandfather has always wanted to fly across the U.S. in his antique Piper Cub. When her grandmother dies and her grandfather decides to sell the plane, Birch discovers that it's not so hard to convince Pop to take off on a short trip. How hard can it be to talk him into making the big one and taking her with him?About the Author:
Betsy Byars, a native of Charlotte, North Carolina, received a degree in English from Queens College there. Currently, she lives in Clemson, SC with her husband, a college professor. They have four grown children--one son and three daughters--and five grandchildren. "My own hobbies," Byars says, "are rather quiet. I like to read and do needlework, and I love animals. But my husband has some very interesting hobbies, and through him, I've learned to fly and earned my pilot's license. Together, we fly all over the United States. Since our children are all grown now, we also travel a great deal in Europe, but we take commercial flights because our plane is not really equipped to make transatlantic flights."
