Flight is the hilarious and tragic story of an orphaned Indian boy who travels back and forth through time in a charged search for his true identity. With powerful, swift prose, Flight follows the troubled teenager as he learns that violence is not the answer.

The journey begins as he's about to commit a massive act of violence. At the moment of decision, he finds himself shot back through time to awaken in the body of an FBI agent during the civil rights era. It's only the first stop. He continues through time to inhabit the body of an Indian child during the battle at Little Bighorn and then rides with an 1800s Indian tracker before materializing as an airline pilot jetting through the skies today. During these furious travels, his refrain is: "Who's to judge?" and "I don't understand humans." When he returns to his own life, he is transformed by all he's seen.

From AudioFile:

Fifteen-year-old "Zits" has outlasted foster home after foster home. Few notice him, let alone care about him. Then Zits finds himself with several guns in his pockets and a choice to make. But at the exact moment of decision, he is thrust into another dimension and travels back in time. Adam Beach's narration is spot-on for a back-talking, unsure, acerbic, wounded teen trying to learn about hate and love. His narration stays attuned to the pace, quickening or slowing with Zits's various encounters. Beach isn't as adept with voices for the people whom Zits meets along the way, but it's the main character's travels and point of view that matter. It's a moving, gripping, engaging, and funny journey, one worth taking to see how a troubled teen ends up. M.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
