Flight is a fantastic, fast-paced, mind-blowing journey through human experiences with choices, motivations and death. Succinct, really, though that's not a word that often gets applied to books. You love, hurt and pray for Zits, the self-deprecating nickname our foster kid, "half-breed" protagonist offers, as he jumps from body to body and time to time, offered a miraculous opportunity to see others' choices about death before he makes his potentially tragic decision about the gun(s) in his pocket. A little bit historical fiction, a lot teen angst, this book should be encouraged reading in every high school (despite the language).
