Book Review: Flyaway by Lucy Christopher

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Genre: Fiction

Age Recommended: 13 and up

I was looking through my huge collection of books a few days back and realized that so many of my favorite books have not been reviewed on the blog, either because I had read them before beginning this blog, or because they were so good that I got too wrapped up in the story and completely forgot that I should be reviewing them as well (this book is probably in the latter category).

This is truly an incredibly written book about a young girl who pursues her dreams even after she faces obstacles in all parts of her life.


Isla loves swans. Watching the swans is the one activity that she does with her father, no matter what. But when her father has a heart attack one day while trying to help a swan, Isla is devastated and at a loss of what to do.

Then she meets Harry, a young boy who is stuck in the hospital with leukemia and isn’t allowed to leave the grounds or do anything else. When Isla starts spending more time with Harry, Isla slowly feels herself falling for him, but she’s not sure if she can handle possibly losing another person that she cares about.

When Isla sees a lone swan stuck in the lake outside of the hospital, she feels that helping the swan fly away may be the only way to help her father and Harry. How far will Isla go to help the swan fly away?
