Mr. Lemoncello meets the Amazing Race in this quirky high-octane balloon-racing middle grade around-the-world adventure.

When an unintended flight over Michigan in her class science project—a lawn chair held aloft by balloons—brings her instant celebrity, Clara Poole is invited to be the spokesperson for a round-the-world adventure race. But when her overprotective father refuses, Clara forges his signature in a moment of defiance and runs away to Paris to take her place in the skies. If only she’d read the fine print first.

Partnered with a veteran aeronaut who wants nothing to do with her, Clara faces down ten treacherous stages in a race around the world—capturing flags in the perilous mountains of Nepal; being a guest of honor at a maybe-wedding in the Saharan desert; flying through rings of fire in Hong Kong—all while learning the ropes alongside a colorful cast of international competitors.

But there are more dangers ahead. Someone is trying to sabotage the competition. And surviving this race means Clara must come to terms with the tragedy that set her fleeing to the skies in the first place, and accepting that forgiving herself isn’t a process she has to undertake alone.

Gorgeous prose and winning characters combine in this quirky, often-hilarious, sometimes heart-breaking, and thoroughly captivating middle grade adventure series starter from an incredible new talent.

What starts as a curious tale of a young girl flying by unconventional means, to say the least, over the Michigan countryside, ends with readers hearts taking to the skies!

Clara has been through a lot, and the last ton she needed was more change...unfortunately her father didn't get that memo, and when he comes home with BIG NEWS, she ironically stumbles into her own BIG NEWS situation. While his would've been the safer route, hers followed her heart ❤️  even if she didn't realize it at the time. This story is filled with adventure, mayhem, unexpected twists and turns, underhandedness, and sabotage... but it's always FULL TO THE BRIM with discoveries, friendship, acceptance, forgiveness, and finding yourself. Clara and her father had such things to learn on their own in order to come back together fully after thier great loss, and it definitely took the life lessons, and good-natured cunning of one captainess of the skies, Ms. Gildersleeve.

A cast of characters you won't forget (high five, Hatsu! Love the hat!), and an adventure of the skies as well as the heart, fans of Middle Grade Fiction will not want to sit this race out!
