Georgie Hall is flying, soaring in the night sky above Waldon Pond. A seasoned Canada goose flies beside her, helping her realize her deepest dreams. Down below, there are people who want to keep her firmly on the ground--like her family and the meddling neighbors. 1981 Newbery Honor Book, 1980 ALA Notable Children's Book, 1980 Children's Editors' Choice.
From the Publisher:

If there's one thing Georgie Hall has always been, it's determined.

So when her stepcousins Eleanor and Eddy tell her that she can't fly, Georgie doesn't get discouraged -- she just tries harder She feels a peculiar lightness when she leaps from the top of the staircase, and is even more certain of her seemingly impossible ability when she jumps from the porch and soars to the rooftop before landing safely on the ground. And now that a mysterious Canada goose is visiting Georgie's window on a nightly basis, the Hall family begins to wonder just what Georgie is capable of....

Author Bio
Jane Langton
Jane Langton attended Wellesley College and the University of Michigan, where she earned a B.S and an M.A., and Radcliffe College, where she earned a second M.A. From 1950 to 1956, she worked for the public television station WGBH in Boston. She is best known for her Massachusetts-based mysteries featuring Thoreau scholar Homer Kelley, who first appeared in "Natural Enemy" (1982). Her mysteries are devoid of explicit violence and center more on themes of consequence, nature, and morality. Certain editions also include pen-and-ink drawings, which she illustrated herself.

Praise

Booklist
"Langston's superbly told story reaches beyond the confines of its finely tempered plot and leaves an echo that is at once touching and challenging."
