From the Newbery Award-winning author of Sarah, Plain and Tall comes a story about one brave girl who saves her family from losing everything.

Everyone in Lucy's family sings. Opera. Rap. Lullabies. Everyone, except Lucy. Lucy can't sing; her voice just won't come out.

Just like singing, helping Aunt Frankie prepare for flooding season is a family tradition--even if Frankie doesn't want the help. And this year, when the flood arrives, danger finds its way into the heart of Lucy's family, and Lucy will need to find her voice to save her brother.

"Lucy and her two-year-old brother Teddy share a unique bond. Lucy has a way with words, but she's not a gifted singer like the rest of the family. Teddy, on the other hand, can't speak in words, but he secretly sings to Lucy every night. On a family visit to Aunt Frankie's farm in North Dakota, Teddy goes missing just as the Red River begins to flood, and Lucy realizes that her song might be the only way to save Teddy. Can she find her voice in time to find her brother? Simple and heartfelt, Fly Away is just right for younger readers looking for longer chapter books." Kids' Books June 2014 newsletter
