Myra is used to keeping her feet firmly on the ground. She's got four younger brothers, overworked parents, and a pregnant older sister, and if Myra wasn't there to take care of everyone, they'd probably fall apart. But when her boyfriend unceremoniously dumps her, Myra feels like she's lost her footing. Suddenly she's doing things she never would've a few months earlier: quitting her job, applying for a scholarship to study birds in the Galapogos, and falling for a guy who's encouraging her to leap from her old life . . . and fly.

Set in the Salt Lake City area, Girls Don't Fly is full of intelligence, humor, and is a refreshing change of pace for teen readers.

Great book! Unique way to make the title of the chapters, but also very cool! Myra was definitely a great character, and also very realistic. Great job with the book!

I feel myself begin to tilt and spin and disappear in the warmth of his safe arms. But I don't. I stay on my feet, ready to fly.
