In little Lowland County, there lives a little farm girl named Piper McCloud. But Piper has a secret... she can fly! Ever since she was a baby she could hover a few feet off the ground. Even though her parents forbid her from using her gift, Piper still practices her gift... even if it means jumping off the barn.
But then one day, as she is playing baseball with the other town kids, Piper finally catches the ball; hopeful the other kids will finally like her. But what she doesn't realize that is... she flew.
Now that everyone thinks she's even more of a freak than before, and her parents don't know what to do with her, Piper McCloud is sent away to I.N.S.A.N.E., for kids with special abilities like hers. But the school is not as welcoming as she hoped.
For example, some of the kids are quite rude, and one is almost (probably) evil. To make matters worse, the headmaster, Dr. Lucia Hellion, is behind something, and Piper is sure that her pretty face and high heels are a mask to cover up a twisty secret.
With the help of her enemy, and a few of her weird but trust-worthy friends, Piper uncovers a secret that will leave her thinking for quite some time.
