This was a delightful story which captured my attention from the first page to the last. It was masterfully written with suspense and humor. I would love to see it as a movie!

This is a great book by a great new writer. This will be made into a movie. If you like coming of age stories that take you through coming of age to aging, if you like humor and like stories of adventurous committed love – you will love this book.

The Flight of the Pickerings is excellent! Touching, funny, very juicy. A creative masterpiece. I think it should be required reading for all of us. I highly recommend you read it immediately!

Genuinely vibrantly imagined…emotionally rigorous…idea driven…with indelible characters and true suspense.
A tender tribute to human valiance…..impossible to be unmoved by this fragile life-affirming story!
Terrific debut by John Grayson Heide
