From the Publisher:
Piper McCloud lives with her normal ma and pa on a normal farm in normal Lowland County. But Piper isn’t your normal girl. Ever since Piper was a baby she’s been able to hover a few feet off the ground, and if the people of Lowland County knew she could fly, they would have something to say about it. So it only seems best that Piper be sent away to I.N.S.A.N.E., the top secret school for children with extraordinary abilities like hers. Her new friends have powers like telekinesis, X-ray vision, and the ability to create their own weather. Piper likes her new life at school, but soon, she realizes things aren’t as they seem. Now, the school she was sent to for her own protection might be the most dangerous place she’s ever been.
Annotation:
In the book jacket blurb, Stephenie Meyer summarizes THE GIRL WHO COULD FLY as a "mix of Little House on the Prairie and X-Men," which seems a fair assessment of this fantastic tale about an ordinary girl with an extraordinary gift--or, better yet, an extraordinary lift. Piper McCloud has been surreptitiously hovering around her farm in Lowland County for as long as she can remember, though her paranoid parents implore her to keep her gravity-defying talent under wraps. When the secret of Piper's aeronautic ability gets out, she is quickly corralled into a school for kids with supernormal skills, but instead of nurturing her gift, the stringent school authorities seek to suppress it. If she wants to avoid being (literally) grounded for life, Piper will have to rally her fellow adolescent anomalies into a revolt which will severely test their unique talents.
