Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A few, nicknamed leadfeet, are forced 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.

Along with a new friend, a boy named Bug, Gurl begins a quest that takes her on a wild ride through the magical city, all the way to the handsome but lethal Sweetcheeks Grabowski — the gangster who holds the key to Gurl's past...and the world's future.

Review:

"Witty and ironic, Ruby's sharp writing propels the story to an exhilarating climax." VOYA

Review:

"A surprising romp through the freakish, urban landscape, this fast-paced story will appeal to listeners who yearn for independence and happy endings." School Library Journal

Review:

"Inimitably imaginative, original, funny and exciting, this story plays its tune upon the deepest wishes of children. No need to compare with Harry Potter or The Thief Lord; with The Wall and the Wing, American fantasy takes full flight." Esme Raji Codell, author of Sahara Special and Diary of a Fairy Godmother
