Laurel, a fifteen-year-old homeschooled girl, is having a difficulty adjusting to public high school. The cafeteria is too loud and there is not enough sunlight. She makes a tentative friend-ship with David, who helps her make sense of biology class. When the knot on her back turns out not to be cancer (as she feared) but an actual flower, high school gets even harder.
Ms. McPike has a four book deal with her publishers so I am anxiously awaiting the completion of the this series. Part fantasy, and part romance, Wings has many of the modern fairy tale elements that I confess are my current favorite reads.
