Hardcover Description:

“…shows a vulnerable boy defended by a Black girl who admires rather than mocks his difference. The collage illustrations are stark but also tender.”—Zetta Elliott, PhD

Are you brave enough to be your true self? Ikarus Jackson is. But it isn’t always easy. The people in his neighborhood point at his wings. The kids at school laugh. The teachers call him a distraction. One girl identifies with him, but she is too shy to speak up. Finally, when his classmates’ taunts send Ikarus drifting into the sky, the girl sets out in search of him, and so begins her own journey of self-discovery, leaving both of them transformed.
