“Twelve-year-old Gwenni can fly in her sleep, and, from this unusual perspective, she sees many things that others overlook. When her neighbor in a small Welsh village disappears, Gwenni begins an investigation to find him. Along the way, she uncovers her own family's secrets, but she never wavers from her determination to discover the truth. Gwenni is an unforgettable character and seeing life through her eyes is the true magic in this novel.”
— Erica Caldwell, Present Tense, Batavia, NY

"Has our family got secrets?" "Every Family has, Gwenni. Big secrets, small secrets, silly secrets, bad things we want to hide..." Young Gwenni Morgan has a gift. She can fly in her sleep. She's also fond of strawberry whip, detective stories and asking difficult questions. When a neighbour mysteriously vanishes, she resolves to uncover the secret of his disappearance and return him to his children. She truthfully records what she sees and hears: but are her deductions correct? What is the real truth? And what will be the consequences - for Gwenni, her family and her community - of finding it out?
