Recommended for gr. 4-8. Piper is an unusual girl. She has been able to float above the ground since she was a baby and eventually teaches herself to fly. Her parents forbid her to fly, but Piper can't resist using her talent to catch a fly ball in a baseball game. The townsfolk are horrified and Piper's dreams of having friends are gone. Here the story takes a darker tone. Dr. Letitia Hellion and her minions turn up and take Piper to an special school ominously called I.N.S.A.N.E., where she and her family are assured that her talent will be treated the way it deserves. The reader and Piper soon discover that the school is really designed to "normalize" its students by destroying that which makes them special. Through an unlikely set of circumstances, things are positively resolved for the children in the school, and Piper's parents realize that different is not necessarily bad.
