Lani Sutherland has a secret, and all she knows is that she has to keep it, no matter what. So she packs her suitcase, leaves her worried roommate Shauna behind, and moves into a strange boarding house to hide. Living with the foreboding widow Mrs. Beckendorf is unsettling enough, but when another boarder starts catching on to Lani's secret, and the FBI starts following her, Lani gets desperate. Shauna might be Lani's only hope, but would even the best friend in the world believe Lani when she confides that she can . . . fly? And what is she supposed to do now? A quirky, low-tech fable about friendship and finding yourself.
