Description

I lifted Cherokee up to the sky. She cocked her head at the passing clouds, her dark blus neck feather ruffling in the breeze. I could feel the beat of her heart in my hands and her warm toes scratching against my skin. I waited for an upward gust of wind and then, slowly, I parted my hands. Fly, I whispered. Cherokee! Fly! And she was gone. When Darryl discovers a homing pigeon with a broken wing in the park, he manages to persuade his parents to let him keep it and suddenly he has a new and captivating hobby. If he can help the pigeon Cherokee learn to fly again, maybe he could even race her! There's just one problem: Cherokee's original owner. Will he want her back? As the bird courageously fights past the broken wing to fly again, Darryl is also to need every ounce of his own courage to stand firm against a bully, whose threats could lead to Darryl's losing Cherokee for ever...show more
