Problem is, the good folk of Lowland County are afraid of Piper. And her ma is at her wits end. And then like a shining beacon, comes the beautiful Dr.
Letitia Hellion and her entourage of expressionless dark suits. Without much persuasion, they whisk Piper off to a top-secret, maximum security institute for special children called I. Finally, Piper is attending a proper school, making hesitant friends and vindictive enemies.
She is seeing the world from a different view-point. The good? Something which must not be repeated at any cost. And Piper agrees…her spirit is submerged and her one great desire in life, heavily doused under a promising layer of a luxurous lifestyle.
But something is rotten in the state of Denmark , or at I. Is mean and nasty fellow student, Conrad really a rotten egg? What experiments are being conducted at the different levels of the institute?
Who are the friends and who are the foes? All this and much more are revealed in the story of Piper McCloud — an optimistic, feisty and extraordinary little girl.
V ictoria F orester has a delightful way of weaving a plot. No monologues, no unnecessary dialogues and characters with enough gumption to hold all the threads in place. Sep 21, Clare Cannon rated it really liked it Recommends it for: years. Shelves: yrs.
This was an unusual book. It had a worthy theme as its premise: special talents should be encouraged and developed, but one also needs humility and friendship with others to be a happy person. Yet the book didn't flow evenly. It began in an American country town populated with God-fearing simple folk who didn't like anything that 'wasn't the way of things', so when Piper McCloud discovers she can fly she becomes the town curiosity.
These first few chapters took some patience to get through becau This was an unusual book. These first few chapters took some patience to get through because I wasn't expecting this story to have the feel of Dorothy in Kansas. But then it takes you inside the I.
This place is evil, though it takes a while for Piper and her friends to discover that normalising means torturing and drugging and brainwashing. What started as a nice tale of a girl who was a little bit different soon has you on the edge of a cliff, and then pushes you over so that all is lost before it can be found.
I wasn't expecting such dramatic swings of mood between confident hope, quaint complacency and very dramatic despair, and I found it quite disconcerting. The theme came around nicely in the end, but I'm just not sure who would be the ideal reader for this book. It needs someone who can handle the quaint beginning but also the dramatic middle. It reminds me of the Mysterious Benedict Society, but I think that book has a much wider appeal.
What I can't work out is why it is so highly recommended by Stephenie Meyer, this book has nothing to do with anything she has put her name to, which is probably in its favour. All the same, she was right about it being a cross between Little House on the Prairie and the X-Men, and I've discovered that's not my favourite combination. Yet I've given it four stars because it is a worthwhile read, even if I can't guarantee you'll like it.

This book is a very heartwarming, quirky tale.
You'll laugh , gasp, and, I'll admit, sometimes cry. I am constantly re-reading this and recommending it. Piper McClould can fly. She can see the good in almost everything, and is always talking and asking questions. Her mother Bettty is a nononsense person, and very religious too.
Joe is the very quiet, hard working father. Ever since she was little she could float. Her Ma and Pa panicked, and didn't let her leave the farm for anything but doctor's a This book is a very heartwarming, quirky tale. Her Ma and Pa panicked, and didn't let her leave the farm for anything but doctor's appointments and church. One day, piper decides to jump off the roof. I know, it sounds stupid. But she flies. Her Ma forbids her from flying but she does it anyways. In secret, of course.
Then, her parents take her to a 4th of July picnic. Where everything goes wrong. After the picnic, Paparazzi storms the farm. Then, Dr. Hellion arrives. She is the most beautiful person Piper as ever met, and, also the Leader of an institute for special creatures and humans, called I.

Conrad Harrington III. He bullies her daily and she can barely stand it. But then shes sees something. And her ma's at her wit's end.

School is great at first with a bunch of new friends whose skills range from super-strength to super-genius.
Plus all the homemade apple pie she can eat! But Piper is special, even among the special. And there are consequences. Prepare to have your heart warmed. Hellion's office. While on their way, Piper escapes to the incinerator and meets a growling rose, which a machine nearby sprays a gray substance on.
A tiny drop lands on Piper's arm and it burns her, and she feels sorry for the rose. She meets a turtle with a heavy block crushing its back and decides to leave her bird and save the animals. The turtle, being freed from the block, bounces playfully around the room. It escapes out of a window. Whilst trying to catch it, Piper finds the black cricket she met and she finds he is being bound with sticky glue. Using some Q tips, she gets rid of it and keeps the cricket, which she names Sebastian.
She hears Jessie and Moo coming and hides in a room, where she finds a giraffe. She strokes him lovingly because he is chained by the legs, and it glows in happiness.
While hiding, she hears a voice, which is found to be Dr. Hellion walks to her office, thinking she is there. Piper flies with difficulty to her office and spots a phone, which she uses to dial her Ma and Pa.
Unfortunately, Conrad ends the call and dissects the phone, proving it to be bugged. He hands her her wooden bird and explains he made a replica and threw the replica in the trash. He tells her to keep the cricket and play along.
Conrad immediately blurts to Dr. Hellion that Piper was hiding something, and tells her Bella took a black cricket and let Piper touch it. Hellion questions him about the fight over him throwing Piper's bird in the trash, which he denies and Piper holds her bird up. After lights out, Conrad explains that the academy, called I. She took a large bite out of her sandwich, chewing it thoughtfully, and then loudly sucked some lettuce out of her front teeth.
Not once did she look at the water glass. Right on schedule, the water glass began sliding back toward her. Meanwhile, Piper carefully sized up possible suspects. That left three possibilities: Smitty; Kimber; and the sweetest, most innocent-looking girl sitting directly across from her—Lily Yakimoto. By her own design, Lily was more china doll than girl. She artfully employed a luxurious cream ribbon about her long, shiny black hair to perfectly frame her heartshaped face and accentuate her red button mouth.
It would only last for a moment, of course, before Lily would banish it back to the dark shadows of her person. It was a testament to her amazing self-control that the wildness lurking beneath her placid surface was so skillfully contained and hidden. Despite all appearances to the contrary, Lily was at the helm of this naughty trick and once Piper figured that out, the rest was easy.
Biding her time, Piper waited, waited until the precise moment. Suddenly Piper lunged forward, making a wild grab for the glass. As Piper expected, Lily jerked the glass backward out of her grasp, and because of its position, the glass neatly collided with a plate, which in turn smashed into the glass of water in front of Lily. What are you doing at my table? Lily tilted her chin and opened her eyes wide. The rest of the kids were impressed too. No one had ever done that before.
Piper silently enjoyed her small victory and treated herself to a generous mouthful of apple pie as Conrad swaggered into the room. Claiming his seat, he eyed Piper with a knowing smile. After all, Conrad had escorted Bella, so it would seem logical that they would return at the same time. Minutes passed and still there was no sign of Bella. No one else seemed to be taking any notice, but Piper continued to glance about for her new friend when IT caught her eye.
All quickly turned and saw. And not just any rainbow, but the brightest, most glowing stream of colors stretched out across the atrium not more than twenty feet away from them. It glimmered above the fountain, each color of the spectrum proudly shining forth as clear as a bell.
Her long, golden hair spun about her as she danced across the atrium below her rainbow. Bella whirled to a large potted ficus. Placing her arms around its trunk, color shot upward, turning its leaves into a colorized fire display. From gold to red to orange to silver, the tree was caught in a color storm. The byproduct of the mutation is a temporary color transformation.
But yes, you are somewhat correct. As always, he stood apart from the others. Others soon began to chime in. Go, Bella. It was only then that Piper noticed the tears streaming down her face. Others noticed too, and the cheering died. Smitty was equally perplexed. In a daze, Bella allowed him to lead her away without protest. Just before she disappeared into a corridor she stumbled, swayed dangerously, and then collapsed. Nurse Tolle caught her before she fell to the floor and scooped her up as though she weighed no more than a piece of paper.
A moment later they were gone. Come, come, children. You vill eat now. Conrad shrugged. Kimber stalked away and Smitty followed. Ve vill leave her be. Piper was seated next to Violet in the art room, where the class, after all the excitement of the afternoon, was finally quietly occupied with basket weaving.
Lily does that thing with the water glass to kids all the time. Her ever-changing size caused her no end of embarrassment, and in a futile attempt to mitigate her situation, she averted her gaze at all times, hid behind her dark complexion, and spoke with a voice softer than a gentle breeze.
And hard too. The big girl over there is Daisy. See that kid over there? The small thing? Piper put her eyes back on her basket and listened more closely. No one knows what he can do. Story goes that when he came here, Nurse Tolle yelled at him so bad, he forgot. Big trouble. Just stay as far away from him as you can.
Conrad runs this place. Always has. Terrible things. Get herself hurt. Like Bella. Professor Mumbleby sighed. The art room was on the third tier of the thirteenth level facing the atrium and the supply closet was on the first tier, about as far away as it could possibly be.
Haughtily rising to his feet, Conrad assumed command of the classroom. By this point, Nalen and Ahmed were flanking Conrad. They enjoyed a good fight and loved it when Conrad stirred up a bit of trouble. What did you say? You think your basket is good?
Sit down. Get back his basket? Are you speaking English or is that some primitive grunting language? Unga bunga. Now give it back. The rest of the class waited with bated breath. Especially the likes of you. And I know a bully when I see one. Now get it back. Conrad smirked. Here it is. Take it. Terrified out of his mind, Jasper reached out one thin, shaking arm. All watched the slow journey of his lone hand until it finally arrived at the basket and tentatively moved to grasp the handle.
At that very second, right before his fingers could touch the wood, Conrad suddenly snapped the basket back, flung it around, and tossed it across the room. Professor Mumbleby had opened one of the windows, but the basket avoided falling to the atrium floor by a mere three inches, and instead got caught on the rail above the window, which hung some thirteen feet above the classroom floor. Instantly the class abandoned their seats and crowded around Piper as she climbed atop a desk located directly beneath the basket.
Ahmed and Nalen snickered knowingly. Undaunted, Piper stacked a chair atop the desk and climbed both the desk and then the chair, carefully rising to her full height, only to discover that once again, the basket was still out of reach.
The kids murmured in anticipation as they watched Piper stack a second chair atop the desk and, with precarious movements, climb all three. Several times Piper lost her balance and Conrad, with gleeful anticipation, expected her to fall, while the other children gasped in horror. Smitty leaned over to Kimber, speaking out of the side of his mouth.
Her feet were stretched upward and she balanced on the very tips of her toes, but could go no farther. The chairs swayed dangerously. Lily watched through her fingers. Piper knew that Conrad was already smugly anticipating her empty-handed descent. Piper closed her eyes and silently said the words. It was Conrad, haughtily leaning off to the side, who saw everything.
Like everyone else who saw it for the first time, it took his breath away. Piper flew. Not much. Just those two inches and then she grabbed the basket and got her feet right back onto the chair.
Conrad was shocked and surprised. Novel emotions for a genius for whom the unexpected was often anticipated with unerring accuracy. His facial muscles registered nothing of the electromagnetic firestorm of cognitive excitement that was instantly sparked inside his brain. Thus accomplished, Conrad confidently set forth. Piper turned triumphantly to the class, holding the basket like a trophy above her head. Except for Nalen and Ahmed, the others gave out various cheers and excited gasps.
Especially Violet. To Jasper? An apology is in order. But not to Jasper, to you. It was the exact amount of pressure placed at precisely the point required, as Conrad well knew, to send Piper toppling in only one direction.
Piper swayed first left, then right, then left again, and to the surprise of all gathered, except Conrad, at last fell backward, arms swinging like a windmill, out the open window directly behind her. A second later she was gone. Not a child moved, so shocked were they by the outcome of events. The classroom was three floors above the atrium floor—a fall that would have killed any one of them. You killed her! Jasper, being the youngest and most fragile, began to cry.
And they all believed it to be true, except one. Then suddenly, Piper shot upward, soaring through the air. Everyone else was rendered mute with astonishment. The cheer that rose was deafening. Daisy pounded the floor and her strength was so great, the very room shook.
Myrtle began clapping her hands together so fast, it sounded as though she was an entire stadium of fans. And the others just cheered. Please, carry on. Not only did they accept her flying, they welcomed it. Truly, she had finally found a home! She completed a complicated twist loop combination in sheer pleasure. Except, of course, Conrad. Kids scattered like buckshot, clearly exposing Piper outside the window. Piper froze in midair, a deer in the crosshairs.
Sie nuss verwiefen werden! Sitting behind her desk in her large, white office, Dr. Hellion was the picture of calm, composure, and rationality. Agent stood silently behind her right shoulder like a statue, and behind him was a wall of glass through which you could see the rest of the facility. Not to mention the others. Surely you can see that. Hellion listened to Piper thoughtfully. Then what? Piper silently begged Dr.
Hellion to give her another chance. Hellion interjected evenly before Nurse Tolle or Professor Mumbleby could interrupt. Hellion raised an eyebrow and Piper stopped herself before she continued. I remember. Now, when you agreed not to fly, did you understand that you were making a commitment both to me and this institution? Hellion quietly pointed out. If you have a problem, you must ask for help. Hellion said to Professor Mumbleby and Nurse Tolle. Reluctantly, they allowed Agent Agent to escort them from the office, closing the door after them.
Hellion watched Piper closely. In the uncomfortable pause that followed, Piper shifted back and forth, waiting on tenterhooks for Dr.
After the way Dr. Hellion had been so nice to her, Piper felt just terrible for letting her down. When Dr. Hellion finally did speak, she did so in the same even tones and rational manner that made everything make sense. We are all here to help you and the rules we have created are for precisely that purpose.
They ensure your safety, protection, and growth. Hellion paused, watching Piper to make sure she was really listening and understanding. Hellion was right. Hellion stood up and walked to the large glass window in her office to look out over the amazing facility that stretched high above them. Those decisions belong entirely to you and I will respect whatever path you take. Hellion spoke firmly, harshly even. And that is non-negotiable. One more incident, regardless of who is at fault, and you will leave.With an OverDrive account, you can save your favorite libraries for at-a-glance information about availability.
