She’s learning to be
happy . . . on her own.
Myra is used to keeping her feet firmly on the ground. She’s got four younger brothers, overworked parents, and a pregnant older sister, and if Myra wasn’t there to take care of everyone, they’d probably fall apart. But when her boyfriend unceremoniously dumps her, Myra feels like she’s lost her footing. Suddenly she’s doing things she never would have a few months earlier: jumping around in a chicken suit for a part-time job, competing against her ex-boyfriend for a scholarship to study birds in the Galápagos, and falling for a guy who’s encouraging her to leap from her old life . . . and fly.
With plenty of heart and humor, Kristin Chandler tells a story that will make you feel good from the soles of your feet to the tips of your wings.
