Cant help but think that the wings symbolizes something else. Like letting your children spread their wings.

A simple but beautifully done coming-of-age tale.

Linnet is horrified when one day her wings begin to grow. Her mother's reaction is almost worse. When it is revealed that wings are a part of their family (her mother had them too), Linnet isn't sure what the future will be like. To help Linnet come to terms with what she is, her grandmother, the one who cut her mother's wings years ago, will take her to a special place. A retreat, a hiding place, for people with wings.

There, Linnet will find a new sort of family; kind and motherly Ellen, her daughter Jan, shy and handsome Charlie, innocent and bold Jake, and fierce, prickly Andy. In their mountain home, Linnet will make friends, help protect their secret, and come to understand her strange ability.

And maybe, she will learn to fly.

Simple, heartfelt, and lyrical, Linnet's story is an inspiration even to the non-winged, and another one of those novels that makes it only too easy to imagine that it actually happened.

Note: Although this book has no relation to it, fans of James Patterson's Maximum Ride will most likely enjoy it, and there are many parallels to be found.

A fun read but seemed like a draft. It needed some editing and some fleshing out of parts. I read the ebook version and there were a significant number of typos, such as when a scanner program mistakes one letter for another- so it was still readable but slightly annoying.
