Wenny Has Wings

By Janet Lee Carey

Atheneum Books for Young Readers, Paperback, 9780689867590, 232pp.

Publication Date: June 1, 2004

In the fight with the truck barreling toward them, Wenny and Will lost big. Wenny lost her life. Will lost a sister -- and lost faith in himself.
But then Will starts writing letters to Wenny. He tells her all about the secret of his near-death experience, and the troubles he's having at home. Some letters are funny. Some letters are harsh. And when read together, they tell the story of a boy who finds a way to move past death and learns how to live again....
