Summary

A page-turning adventure featuring a clever 11-year-old girl who must, against all odds, protect her family and town during the height of the communist "red scare."

It's 1953 and America is on edge with rumors of Communist spies undermining the country. Peggy's small hometown is fearful of the "red scare," too. But Peggy has her own problems: She's struggling to recover from polio. Taunted by her classmates, Peggy just wants to be left alone, but then she accidentally finds a mysterious artifact that gives her the power to fly. Unscrupulous FBI agents also want the artifact, and suddenly Peggy finds herself smack in the middle of the Cold War arms race between Communist Russia and the United States!
