Wenny Has Wings

by Janet Lee Carey
£5.99   paperback  Faber and Faber (2005)

Wenny Has Wings by Janet Lee Carey Wenny and I were zooming through the sky. It was really bright and colourful, and the light was all inside of me like Iíd swallowed it.
 
After the accident, something big happened to Will North. Something that he has to keep a secret in case everybody thinks he's mad. For when the lorry hit him and his sister Wenny, they found themselves flying through the most beautiful place they'd ever seen. And the only person Will can talk to about it is Wenny. But she isnít here - she didn't come back.
 
The doctor says that Will died for ten minutes and is lucky to have survived. But Will doesn't think he's lucky. Not until he realizes that he came back for a very important reason.
 
Written as a collection of letters, this is a beautifully crafted, deeply moving and ultimately uplifting novel.
