The journey to conquering your fears starts with 1,776 steps.
Starting sixth grade after years of homeschooling, Ella is tired of being known as Allergic-to-Everything Girl. She just wants to eat pizza without breaking into hives, convince her mom to adopt a Whoodle dog, and get over her stage fright so she can perform her poem to her class.
When her best friend signs up for a CN Tower climb for charity, Ella knows she has to join. If she can climb to the top and summon the courage to recite her poem over the city, she’s convinced she’ll finally be cured of her fears.
“Sylvia McNicoll’s heart-warming novel is an empathetic look into the strength and courage it takes for children with multiple life-threatening allergies to wake up and face the challenge of everyday living. Blue to the Sky is an important and entertaining book.”
