Synopses & Reviews
Stunningly original, fabulously inventive and packed with humour and wit, FLY BY NIGHT is a unique and extraordinary debut novel. When words take flight, heroes are born... A breath-taking adventure story, set in reimagined eighteenth century England. A time of fracture and division - as the realm struggles to maintain an uneasy peace after years of cival war and tyranny, a twelve-year-old orphan and her loyal companion, a grumpy goose, are about to become the unlikely heroes of a radical revolution.
Twelve-year-old Mosca Mye hasn't got much. Her parents are dead, her cruel uncle keeps her locked away, and her only friend is her pet goose. But she does have one small, rare thing: the ability to read. In a world where books are dangerous things, this gift will change her life--but it may also be the death of her.
