Remembering MacLachlan's Sarah Plain and Tall, Fly Away is a lovely story about a family coming back to the family farm during a flood. Through a series of adventures, each person reveals their special place in the family.

"Lucy and her two-year-old brother Teddy share a unique bond. Lucy has a way with words, but she's not a gifted singer like the rest of the family. Teddy, on the other hand, can't speak in words, but he secretly sings to Lucy every night. On a family visit to Aunt Frankie's farm in North Dakota, Teddy goes missing just as the Red River begins to flood, and Lucy realizes that her song might be the only way to save Teddy. Can she find her voice in time to find her brother? Simple and heartfelt, Fly Away is just right for younger readers looking for longer chapter books." Kids' Books June 2014 newsletter
