From Amazon:
In this touching novel, Lucy Christopher explores the remarkable bond between a young girl, a boy and a damaged wild bird - a relationship that will touch everyone who reads it. While visiting her father in hospital, thirteen-year-old Isla meets Harry, the first boy to understand her and her love of the outdoors. But Harry is ill, and as his health fails, Isla is determined to help him in the only way she knows how. Together they watch a lone swan struggling to fly on the lake outside Harry's window. Isla believes that if she can help the damaged swan, somehow she can help Harry. And in doing so, she embarks upon a breathtakingly magical journey of her own.

There are several reasons why I can't wait to read this book: I loved Stolen, I love Chicken House, and Lucy is amazing. Oh, and Flyaway sounds brilliant!

I'm really excited for this, too. It's going to be tough to live up to Stolen though.

The blurb reminds me a little of Skellig - broken bird thing I guess. This does sound good. I haven't read Stolen but I've heard so much about it from other Librarians. I'm guessing this will be a hit too.

Great choice. This reminds me of a film I saw on a children's programme a long time ago. I don' know because I only remember parts of the film =S
