What could possibly go right?

Noah

I'm not daddy material. Everyone who knows me says the same thing.

I didn't know that I had a baby. I had a one-night stand with a baby left on my doorstep.

Then suddenly, Kylie's back in my life.

We haven't seen each for years, but she needs my help.

It turns out that I might need hers more.

Kylie

My label, my manager, and even my makeup artist are ready to drop me.

I've lost my mojo and I need to lose weight, write a song, and stop hiding under the baggy clothes and goth makeup.

I panic because singing is all I've ever wanted to do.

Mom suggests I go to stay with the one man that I've been avoiding for the last three years: the boy that used to live next-door, Noah.

Staying on his ranch could be the break that I need.

A falling star, a failing father, and a heap of post-sex embarrassment.

What could possibly go right?

Jeremy Walsh's parents assume he's been abducted by the elderly man he met on a cross-country flight, but it's the other way around. Two unlikely companions meet in midair: 13-year-old Jeremy, sent against his will by his career-absorbed father to spend the summer with his bipolar mother, and Harry, one-legged and afflicted with mid-stage Alzheimer's, who escapes the confinement of home for what may be his last adventure. Their journey begins, trailed by Harry's wife and Jeremy's parents, who threaten to cut it short. It's a race against time and circumstance. "In Adrian Magnuson's Taking Flight a curmudgeon losing his memory and a snarky teen fleeing his parents find a common passion in bird watching. Endearing characters, delightful story and a poignant final scene give this book wings along with the beautifully depicted birds." -Frances Wood, author of Brushed by Feathers: A Year of Birdwatching in the West "Taking Flight is an evocative and moving contemporary novel. It is, at every level, a story about love. For one character it is a coming of age tale, for the other the end of an age. Both are runaways, yet each ultimately is searching for home. I highly recommend this heart-touching, beautifully written book." -Andrea Hurst, president of Andrea Hurst Literary Management "Filled with well-developed, real-life characters, Taking Flight's heart-breaking but satisfying story hits on all cylinders: action, comedy, and emotion." -Terry Persun, award winning author of Sweet Song
