If I Could Fly is an unputdownable novel with real heart for fans of Cathy Cassidy. Calypso Summer. Yeah, that really is my name. 'A girl with such a name is on a journey. She will have adventures,' my mother used to murmur in my ear. And I now I am on a journey. I'm running from something terrible - but I don't know what. It's like my brain has blocked it out. For now, I'm learning to survive: to break the System and not get caught. I've found a friend I can trust. Next stop, freedom. Somehow, somewhere ...If I Could Fly is a story you'll never forget. Tender, deeply moving and accessible, Jill Hucklesby's breakthrough book for teens is reminiscent of Eva Ibbotson and Meg Rosoff's finest work.

'A satisfying blend of action and reflection for young teens.' (Daily Mail, January 2011). 'A beautifully written coming-of-age story ...' (The Bookseller, July 2011) '... haunting and magical ... a cleverly unravelled story that keeps readers guessing for a long time.' (reviewed by Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading4kids, January 2011) 'This futuristic and unusual novel is infused with mystery from the very first page ... lyrically written, surprising and original.' (Chicklish, January 2011). 'An elegant, slightly dystopian, kaleidoscopically surreal coming-of-age story ...' (The Bookette, January 2011) '... a striking novel that shocked me with a mind-blowing twist at the end that will be loved and remembered by everyone who reads it.' (So Many Books, So Little Time January 2011) 'Young people will enjoy the fast-paced action, sense of menace and twist that leads to the denouement. Hucklesby has written a satisfying story with a difference for this age group.' (Write Away, January 2011) '... a powerful story, featuring a puzzle, set in unknown surroundings, which means you can't know what is OK and what isn't. Very thought-provoking. And I didn't see the end coming.' (The Bookwitch, January 2011). 'A really original novel. 'If I Could Fly' tackles issues that ordinary teenagers face in an extraordinary setting.' (Robert Napier School with Medway Libraries Headspace Reading Group, January 2011) 'I really liked that the mysteries unfolded for the reader at the same time as they did for Caly. It made me feel closer to her.' (Robert Napier School with Medway Libraries Headspace Reading Group, January 2011)
