Lee Bloom is drawn to the house on Avenue J by mysterious voices from behind the rose trellis. It isn't long before the girl who lives there, Polly Burke, invites Lee in for a shipwreck, a poisoned-tea party, and-best of all-flying lessons. Then Polly reveals a secret-Peter Pan has told her he needs their help-and the newfound friends join forces to fight the pirates who are coming by cloudship galleon. But pirates aren't the only threat Lee and Polly must battle in Brooklyn, 1959. Their mothers' bigotry-Lee's against anyone not Jewish or white; Polly's against Lee for being Jewish-threatens the girls' friendship. This story of how two friends manage to fly above both pirates and prejudice will lift readers' hearts.show more
