WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

There is something different about the new boy at school. Ikarus Jackson's main challenge is not school work, but fitting in with his classmates. Instead of a backpack, he dons a feathery white set of wings. To stop the kids from taunting his uniquely feathered look, Ikarus soars through the city, over rooftops and playgrounds, like a slow-motion instant replay. Just when he thinks he's all alone, a brave schoolgirl tells him what someone should have from the start: "your flying is beautiful." A modern-day interpretation of the Greek myth of Icarus, The Wings of Ikarus Jackson shines hope on embracing diversity.
