Something is telling me Samphire and I should be together. It's a feeling coming from somewhere so deep inside, a place I thought was buried away, never to be prised open. The first time I saw Samphire, I knew he was the one. He was wild, troubled, broken, but there was an instant connection so powerful I couldn't ignore it. Maybe he knew that I was broken too? Slowly, we learned to trust one another, and now we have a bond so strong that nothing can break it. So the day he disappeared from my world, it felt like my life was over. But I will find him – I'll make it my mission. A powerful, uplifting story about a girl and her spirited horse, fighting against the odds.
Calypso Summer. Yeah, that really is my name.
'A girl with such a name is on a journey. She will have adventures,' my mother used to murmur in my ear.
And now I am on a journey. I'm running from something terrible – but I don't know what. It's like my brain has blocked it out. For now, I'm learning to survive: to break the System and not get caught. I've found a friend I can trust. Next stop, freedom. Somehow, somewhere . . .
If I Could Fly is a story you'll never forget.
