I Love to Read: Wings
Book Title: Wings by Christopher Myers
Wings is the story of Ikarus Jackson, who is a new boy in town. Ikarus is different. He has wings and the ability to fly! Ikarus is made fun of at school because he is different, and his teacher even yells at him because of his wings. Ikarus tries to fit in on the playground but the kids whisper and laugh at him, which makes him feel very sad and embarrassed. So Ikarus decides to fly away and be all alone, where no one can bother him. But just when he does, a young girl who knows about loneliness, too, steps up and befriends him. Together they form a friendship that helps both of them to become more confident and have pride in their individuality.
