    This book is about a profile in courage. This young man thought the sky was the limit. He wanted to fly an airplane. This feat was easier said than done. Louis had to negotiate his way into college before he joined the US Navy. Then, he had to find a way to get into flight school. “Don’t you want to see my wings in the sun?” asked the girl. The last thing the boy wanted was to see the girl’s wings again, to be reminded of his own now useless wings, but the girl was so keen, so proud. He remembered how proud he’d been of his own splendid wings before “Yes,” he said. “Yes. Of course.”/10(75).

    One theme that it can be is "once you set your mind to it you will get it". The reason why you could say this is because Ida is a girl who wanted to be a WASP. Everyone, even her family was telling her that she should not do it; but she did not listen; she set her mind to it and ignored everybody and then finally, Ida achieved her goal. The Little Girl Who Wanted To Fly. Here is just ONE of the many inspiring uplifting MLM stories from the new book Chicken Soup For The Network Marketer's Soul. Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much.

    Slowly, Tracy begins to examine her life, her goals, and her sexuality--as she evolves from a Flyy Girl into a woman. A captivating tale, written with fluid narrative and contemporary dialect, Flyy Girl captures the complete feel and sounds of the streets and . The Girl Who Could Fly is an unforgettable story of defiance and courage about an irrepressible heroine who can, who will, who must fly. This title has Common Core connections. Praise for Victoria Forester and The Girl Who Could Fly: "It's the oddest/sweetest mix of Little House on the Prairie and X-Men. I was smiling the whole time.
