A stunningly written tale of an isolated girl and the shape-shifting boy who shows her what freedom could be–if only she has the courage to take it.
Controlled by her father and bound by desert, Frenenqer Paje’s life is tediously the same, until a small act of rebellion explodes her world and she meets a boy, but not just a boy–a Free person, a winged person, a shape-shifter. He has everything Frenenqer doesn’t. No family, no attachments, no rules. At night, he flies them to the far-flung places of their childhoods to retrace their pasts. But when the delicate balance of their friendship threatens to rupture into something more, Frenenqer must confront her isolation, her father, and her very sense of identity, breaking all the rules of her life to become free.
About the Author:
My first day on earth was spent in a huge tropical storm which cut the power lines and brought century-old trees crashing down. Can your birthday set the tone for the rest of your life?
After that auspicious start, I spent many years sitting in an Emirati desert staring at the moon. My first book is The Girl With Borrowed Wings.
