When life gets tough, Wing doesn’t get low. She flies high with her trainers on! Part Chinese, part Ghanaian, Wing’s always felt stuck in limbo: caught between two worlds. The only person who gets her is her big brother Marcus, and he (unlike her) is effortlessly cool. But then something terrible happens, and Wing needs to escape – so she goes running. Whoosh! It turns out that on the track, Wing can seriously fly. Her speed could bring her family everything they need. But is Wing running away from the one thing she really wants?
