It's exciting to discover new reviews of Flying through Clouds. Here are some quotes from recent reviews:

“Flying through Clouds is a compelling mix of humour and drama, with a resilient and likeable protagonist. This book is full of many interesting writing prompts and would be an asset for wide reading. It could be a useful text for cross- curricular study too.”  (mETAphor, Issue 1, 2018)

“This story is so well written and easy to follow, I would recommend this to fans of YA and is suitable for readers 12 years and up… A book that brought me happy tears, this is one of my 2017 favourites.”  (Read3r’z Re-Vu, 1 November 2017)

“Michelle Morgan creates realistic scenes, which gives her readers a window into the 1930s, where tuberculosis was rampant, planes had propellers and a few hours in the air might allow you to get your pilot license.”  (Kids’ Book Review, 27 August 2017)

1. Tell us something hardly anyone knows about you:

I used to have a pet sheep called George who thought she was a dog.

You can read all of my 12 Curly Questions on the Kids' Book Review website!
