Random Reads Monday

I had a hard choice to make this morning:  pick a book off the shelves for my Random Read this week, or stick to the two I'm already reading this week.  Three in one week is a bit ambitious for me.  But, what the heck, I'll give it a shot!

So with that much reading for this week, I picked a young reader book that looks like a lot of fun:  

This is the paperback cover of The Girl Who Could Fly by Victoria Forester.  I like the cover art for the hardcover version instead:

Anyway, I can see the publisher wanted to make it appeal visually to kids, so they changed the cover.  It happens.  This is about Piper, who comes from a very conservative family, and discovers she can fly.  This will just not do, so she's sent away to a special school which may have nefarious designs on Piper and the other talented kids she meets there.

Have a great reading week!  


  1. Thanks for your great comment. I hope you rediscover your runner's journal. I don't know how I will use mine. I've always just had a log so this will be new to me. :) I just started reading The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant. Have you read it?

  2. I haven't read that one, although I have seen it many times in our store! She's a great writer.
