When Linnet starts the journey into womanhood, it takes a very unexpected turn--she starts growing wings. A beautiful, bittersweet story of growing up, growing pains and what family is really about. If you enjoy The Other Ones by Jean Thesman this is another must read. — Jeanette


A creative, suspenseful novel from award-winning writer Laurel Winter...

Eleven-year-old Linnet is growing wings. Auburn wings, with soft feathers. For a while, she can hide them, but they grow larger and larger, almost seeming to take on a life of their own-while taking away Linnet's old life. Her mother, Sarah, knows what it feels like...almost. For when the young Sarah began to grow wings, her mother-Linnet's grandmother-cut them off. Sarah is a "cutwing." She swore that she would let her own daughter's wings grow when the time came, but now that it's actually happening, she has no idea what to do. And Linnet -- lost, confused, fledgling Linnet -- doesn't either...
