Nine year old B is on a quest to fly, just like her hero Amelia Earhart. She’s even built an airplane treehouse to help her get off the ground. If she can’t manage to lift off before her 10th birthday, which is just 3 days away, She will never be able to soar among the clouds. Help arrives just in the nick of time, when a mysterious woman from the sky takes over her treehouse. Could this be Amelia Earhart, who disappeared during her final voyage? Can B help her hero complete the journey and finally rise above the limits of gravity?

This fanciful story uses the power of the imagination to inspire kids to dream BIG and make the impossible…POSSIBLE!
