A 2022 Stonewall Honor Book

"Almost Flying is a thrilling celebration of all the twists and turns, breathtaking jumps and heart-pounding falls of a first crush. Dalia's journey to self-discovery is refreshingly honest, and this entire cast of characters will steal your heart. Every middle schooler will want to take this ride." - Maulik Pancholy, actor and Stonewall Honor-winning author of The Best At It

"Fierce and tender all at once, Almost Flying is a soaring roller coaster ride of a book that stole my breath with every heartwarming twist and each empowering turn." -Ashley Herring Blake, Stonewall Honor-winning author of Ivy Aberdeen's Letter to the World

"A story about the messiness of family, the confusion and awkwardness of a first crush, and the bonds that can only exist between older and younger queer teens. This charming debut had my heart soaring." -Nicole Melleby, author of Hurricane Season and In the Role of Brie Hutchens...

"A delightfully queer-positive and engrossing road trip story." -Booklist

"While this book contains many elements that are widely relatable, the storyline around exploring sexuality is especially resonant... A heartwarming, queer-affirming story." -Kirkus
