About the Author

Ali Stroker made history as the first person in a wheelchair to appear on Broadway and win a Tony Award. She made her Broadway debut in the revival of Spring Awakening and then played Ado Annie in the revival of Oklahoma! Ali graduated from NYU Tisch School of the Arts and has starred and recurred in numerous television shows including "Glee." Her work as a humanitarian includes speaking and performing around the world helping people with and without disabilities through her message of "Making your Limitations into Opportunities." This is her debut novel. Stacy Davidowitz is the author of the Camp Rolling Hills series and coauthor of Camp Rolling Hills the Musical, which continues to have productions across the country. She is also the author of the Hanazuki chapter-book series based on Hasbro's YouTube series. Stacy has written award-winning plays that have been produced regionally and internationally. When she is not writing, she teaches creative writing and musical theater in schools, foster care facilities, and juvenile detention centers. She is a graduate of Tufts University and Columbia University, where she earned degrees in drama and acting. Stacy lives in Manhattan with her husband and twin boys.

Reviews

"I only wish that The Chance to Fly was written when I was a teenager. Ali Stroker is a powerful role model for all youth and adults alike . . . We are living in changing times where audiences are clamoring for greater diversity. A Tony Award winner whose voice soars, whose energy brings us all to cheer is an example of what is possible."-- "Judith Heumann, International Disability Rights Activist, author of Being Heumann: An Unrepentant Me"
"Every theater kid in the world will instantly fall in love with Nat Beacon and relate to her story of perseverance.

She and Stacy Davidowitz will make readers laugh, cry, and teach them the true meaning of defying gravity."-- "Chris Colfer, New York Times bestselling author and Golden Globe winning actor"
