Ever since she can remember, 10-year-old Melody has always wanted to fly. When she leaps off a swing in the park one day and lands in the mystical realm of Chimeroan, her dream finally comes true: she is given a pair of wings with which to fly. Melody is exultant; life could not be any better. Dreams, however, do come with a price. Even with wings, Melody realizes she cannot out-fly the memories of her past. The car accident that has left her father paralyzed, and her unhurt, still plagues her with guilt-she believes it was entirely her fault. In Chimeroan, Melody is forced to come to terms with her part in her father's accident. She must choose between the two things that have become the world to her: keeping her wings or healing her father. Interspersed with beautiful illustrations, this touching novel deals with themes of grief and healing in an imaginative way.

I put the plastic bag Sara gave me on the bed nearest to me. Liz is snoring by the time I leave the room. She fell asleep without washing her face or brushing her teeth. Gross. I cross the corridor and am about to open the bathroom door when I hear a muffled “Shhhhhhh, a

Chimeroan?” “Five. The first as a Guided, three times to train as a guide, and now.” “Three times?” I had no idea it would take that long. “So, anyone can be a guide?” “Yes.” “How do I come back then?” “Keep on believing in your dreams, Melody, and Chimeroan will come to you.” “You mean, there will be a fog?” “Something like that, yes.” “So, there are fliers on earth?” “I told you so,” Sara says. “Okay. I won’t ask how no one has ever seen them.” “You’ll soon find out.” “If I solve

Several children race toward it, including the spiky-haired boy who flees as if the dragons are after him. My parents will freak out when they don’t see me. They’ll think I’ve been kidnapped. I run my fingers through my damp, limp hair, and picture Dad in his wheelchair, lifting weights ten times a day and dragging his paralyzed legs when he walks with crutches. Then there’s Mom who always has some kind of food in her mouth. And school, where everyone thinks I’m stuck-up because I won’t play

The smell comes from the right. I squint, but there’s no sign of any flowers. “Our turn,” Sara says, She takes my hand and leads me down a narrow corridor that somehow doesn’t seem so dark anymore. The scent gets stronger with every step we take. I love geraniums. People in Chimeroan must know that, the same way they knew how
