              Are you brave enough to be your true self? Ikarus Jackson is, but it isn't always easy. The people in his neigborhood point at his wings. The kids at school laugh. The teachers call him a distraction. One girl identifies with Ikarus, but she is too shy to speak up for herself, le...t alone for him. Maybe I should have said something to those mean kids, she thinks, when their taunts send him drifting into the sky. Inspired by Ikarus's own courage, she sets out in search of him and so begins her own journey of self discovery -- leaving both of them transformed. I wanted to create a book that tells kids never to abandon the things that make them different, to be proud of what makes them unique. Every child has their own beauty, their own talents. Ikarus Jackson can fly through the air; I want kids to find their own set of wings and soar with him. -- Christopher Myers
