Reeling from a series of emotional setbacks, Laura now lives with her strict grandparents on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. But in this novel by the author of Wicked, the awkward teenager is startled when a handsome swan boy with only one wing lands on her roof. While keeping him a secret, Laura tries to build the boy a wing so he can fly home, but her task may also help her to truly understand her own family. Offering an innovative adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Wild Swans," Gregory Maguire conjures a beautiful tale of magical realism that illuminates one young woman's heartbreak and hope as she begins the journey to adulthood.
