Publisher's Summary

Flight - you'll dream about it. She had never seen the sky in all her life before. How high could she fly? What was the limit? She was already so high the Earth was no longer real. Only her in the sky. Every spiral pure joy. This was Flight. It was for this she'd risked and endured so much. It had to be worth it.

The dream of being able to fly is now a physical reality but only the rich and powerful can afford the surgery, drugs, and gene manipulation to become fliers. Peri, a poor girl from the regions, will sacrifice anything to get her wings and join this elite but the price is higher than she could have imagined. So why then does she throw it all away?

What the Critics Say

"This book is intoxicating; it made me imagine things I never imagined before. The world of flying is so complete, so detailed and real, it was as if I was flying, as if I could feel my wings. This is an addictive mystery, clever and compelling." (Jane Campion, director of The Piano and Bright Star)

"A brilliantly conceived vision, bold in its execution and utterly convincing in its detail. When We Have Wings is that rare thing, a compelling read that is both emotionally and intellectually satisfying." (Amanda Lohrey)

"Underneath it all, there's an exciting, sometimes romantic, and often scary story." (Helen Watson White, Sunday Star Times, NZ)
