In Just Fly Away, when 15 year-old Lucy Willows discovers she has an eight-year-old brother living just a few blocks away – the result of her father’s brief affair – she begins to question everything she thinks she knows about her life. How could Lucy’s father have betrayed the entire family? How could her mother forgive him? And why isn’t her sister rocked by the news the way Lucy is? Her father’s secret becomes her own and isolates Lucy from her friends and family.
