Comments:
The first book in this series. Brave teen Orissa Kane flies her brother's innovative airplane straight into adventure, daring the dangers of the skies and the jealousy of men on the ground. Real-life aviator Harriet Quimby may have been Baum's inspiration for Orissa Kane, the Flying Girl.
