Myra is used to keeping her feet firmly on the ground. She’s got four younger brothers, overworked parents, and a pregnant older sister, and if Myra wasn’t there to take care of everyone, they’d probably fall apart.
But when her boyfriend unceremoniously dumps her, Myra feels like she’s lost her footing. Suddenly she’s doing things she never would’ve a few months earlier: quitting her job, applying for a scholarship to study birds in the Galapogos, and falling for a guy who’s encouraging her to leap from her old life . . . and fly.
Set on the shores of the Great Salt Lake, Girls Don’t Fly is a tale of evolution, the personal kind.
