"This book was very confusing. The storyline is very good but it almost seemed like the writer had a page limit and ran out of pages before he was able to finish the story. He crammed too many facts into not very much room."

i read this book in about a day and through out the story i found myself having to go back and read the chapter once more because of the confusion and badly writen parts other than that i think it was an ok book and get ready for the end its is very badly writen it shows a dictonary of words used though out the book and then after that was a new text.Idont know if it was a preview of the next book or a non belonging ending. it would actualy be cool if the auther left the end to be how he steps outside and has the determination to fly and right after that he ends it but i also agree with marys comment on the book as well.

I had a totally different impression of WINGS. I absolutely loved it and thought that it was incredibly well written. I can't wait for the next book and my kids are hooked!

I loved this book and was surprised the library didn't have book two. I'm buying them for my library! Although it was good, it wasn't really "individually distinct". As a matter of fact, there are at least two other books released this year with a similar premise, Wings by Pike and Wings by Baker.
