She’s learning to be
happy . . . on her own.
 
Myra is used to keeping her feet firmly on the ground. She’s got four younger brothers, overworked parents, and a pregnant older sister, and if Myra wasn’t there to take care of everyone, they’d probably fall apart. But when her boyfriend unceremoniously dumps her, Myra feels like she’s lost her footing. Suddenly she’s doing things she never would have a few months earlier: jumping around in a chicken suit for a part-time job, competing against her ex-boyfriend for a scholarship to study birds in the Galápagos, and falling for a guy who’s encouraging her to leap from her old life . . . and fly.
     With plenty of heart and humor, Kristin Chandler tells a story that will make you feel good from the soles of your feet to the tips of your wings.

    " I enjoyed this book, and I felt like I could relate the main character. However, I felt like everything wrapped up a little too neatly at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emmaworsham | 11/26/2013

    " I really liked this book. I can't quite say what I thought was so good but I got it for Christmas and finished it that very day. It was captivating in a different way then any other book I've ever read. I would recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 10/10/2013

    " I enjoyed this book. Just wish it had less "language" in it. It ruins the flow of the story for me. Read if you have nothing better to do and don't mind some swearing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zoey | 9/6/2013

    " I really like Myra as a character, because she reminded me so much of myself. She's a people pleaser, and doesn't see a problem with it. I loved her evolution throughout the whole story, and though I found her romance with Pete a little weird, i enjoyed every moment of this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nina O'Daniels | 6/7/2013

    " Probably more like 3.5 stars. Perfect story for journeys theme. Loved that her strength was not determined by a love interest (not that there wasn't one), but more of what she learned through the whole process. "

    " I really liked this book by Utah author Kristen Chandler. Because I am an ornithologist's daughter, I doubly appreciated all the bird-related titles and definitions as the chapter titles. Great novel! "

    " Myra is a girl you wish you knew. You will despise Erik, the boyfriend who dumped her, want her mom to appreciate her more, hope she dazzles all her doubters and cheer for her almost from the beginning. "
