In one vast and sparkling city, everyone can fly.

Almost everyone.

A few, nicknamed leadfeet, are sentenced by a trick of nature or fate to forever spend their lives closer to the ground. But one night, a girl named Gurl - a leadfoot, an orphan, a nobody - discovers that she can do something much better than fly.

She can become invisible.

This amazing power will help her uncover the secret mysteries of the city. But even with her newfound talent, Gurl can't seem to hide from a giant rat man with a taste for cats, a manipulative matron with a penchant for plastic surgery, and a belligerent boy named Bug.

Gurl gradually learns to control her power and teams up with Bug to figure out who and what she is. Their quest will take them on a wild ride through this magical city, where they'll confront chatty birds and mind-bending monkeys, an eccentric genius with a head full of grass and a pocket full of kittens, and the handsome but lethal Sweetcheeks Grabowski - the gangster who holds the key to Gurl's past . . . and the world's future.

    " A good story with lots of potential, but it left out too many details out along the way. The ending turned into a boring mess of explanations. "

    " Clever fantasy about a world where most people fly naturally, making those unforunate "leadfeet" a type of social outcast. Our heroine, however, gets a different gift -- invisibility -- and she uses it to break free of her orphanage routines. However, despite the basic traits it shares with many fantasies for younger children, the plotting and character development are much stronger than stuff I've read lately. And the writer doesn't waste time with a lot of expository writing, which I appreciated. Good for readers 9-14, perhaps, depending on their reading skills and love of fantasy with humor thrown in. "

    " My son thought this book was great....I plodded through it trying to find something of merit, never found it:( "

    " This book is quite funny and adventure-oriented, but with emotional depth. A good recommend for for older elementary kids who enjoy Harry Potter books. "
