Gliding Flight (eBook)
de Anne-Gine Goemans
Sobre o livro
Inventive, dreamy Gieles lives with his father and a flock of geese on a plane-spotters campsite next to an airstrip. The surrounding landscape reclaimed from the sea, is as isolated as Gieles himself. The fourteen-year-old boy is longing for the mysterious dreadlocked girl hes met online, and for the affection of his absent mother, off on hapless missions to save the world. The boy conceives a desperate, dangerous plan to attract his mothers attention. Hell be a hero. Just like Captain Sully, who bravely landed on the Hudson after geese flew into his engines.
Goemans charmingly upbeat novel describes the fantasy-driven world of a teenage boy. At the same time, it tells the incredible story about how the Dutch turned water into land.
