This book has a sci-fi twist that no one will see coming! It's got the trappings of a throwback period piece with its gaze to the future.
Jason Inman & Ashley Robinson comments, "This is a story that we all go through in our lives. Everyone thinks they understand everything about their world. But they don’t and neither does Jupiter Jet. She may be looking for answers in the sky but she needs to focus on the ground and her family for real answers. We’re all the flying girl in our own stories."
