Floating boy and the Girl who Couldn’t Fly is told in first person point of view. From the very beginning this novel engages you through humor as the main character Mary describes how there are worse ways to spend her summer afternoon than at her little cousins birthday party. Things begin to get interesting when an uninvited guest shows up to the party and takes flight after stuffing his face with party snacks. Suddenly, the mysterious floating boy is thought to have been the one spreading a plague. This forces the government to intervene in this little town with big problems. Now Mary must stop the government and save her family and town.
This story was very interesting and kept me on the edge of my seat. However, I like to read contemporary stories and the Floating Boy and the Girl Who Couldn’t Fly is more fantasy than anything. I had a very hard time connecting and believing the story since I’m not really into the whole fantasy thing. This wasn’t at all predictable with all the crazy twists that Jones put into the story, in fact, the twists helped the story tremendously. Floating Boy and the Girl Who Couldn’t Fly is P.T. Jones first novel I am very impressed with the heart pounding thrilling ride I endured while reading!
