Growing Wings by Laurel Winter
Paperback – Firebird – Sep 2002 – 195 pages
Eleven-year-old Linnet is growing wings. Auburn wings, with soft feathers. For a while, she can hide them, but they grow larger and larger, almost seeming to take on a life of their own-while taking away Linnet’s old life. Her mother, Sarah, knows what it feels like…almost. For when the young Sarah began to grow wings, her mother-Linnet’s grandmother-cut them off. Sarah is a “cutwing.” She swore that she would let her own daughter’s wings grow when the time came, but now that it’s actually happening, she has no idea what to do. And Linnet — lost, confused, fledgling Linnet — doesn’t either…
