The book centers on Skyler and her travails while growing up under the care of a hostile grandfather who was always harsh on her. As if the lack of love she experienced at home was not enough, she also found it difficult gaining acceptance in her school except for Roxy who stood in for against bullies and subsequently became friends with Skyler. Her ambition was to become a pilot and Skyler was able to achieve it. However, things took a surreal turn when Skyler suddenly went on a time travel after she almost crashed her aircraft. She woke up to see herself existing in 1997, 21 years earlier. A time period when she was yet to be born and it meant coming in contact with her parents before they got married. She couldn’t tell if she was dead and now in a spirit world or if she has completely lost her mind.
However, the time travel afforded Skyler the opportunity to learn the truth firsthand about events that occurred about her dad and what ultimately led to his death as well as the fortune he left behind for her.
One could feel the suspense building as the book progressed; Skyler struggled to come to terms on why she was back to a period that was supposed to be history.
High Flying is a refreshingly unique book and is quite enjoyable with its funny lines and weird plot.
This is no doubt a thrilling masterpiece that can keep one spellbound till the end.
