Summary (From the publisher):

Eleven-year-old Linnet doesn't know why her shoulder blades have started to itch and ache, or why her mother touches them every night rather than give her a kiss. Then, all at once, she knows: she is growing wings. Auburn wings, with soft feathers. For a while, she can hide them beneath her long hair and loose shirts, but they grow larger and larger, almost seeming to take on a life of their own -- while taking Linnet's old life away from her.

Linnet's mother, Sarah, knows what it feels like... almost. For when the young Sarah began to grow wings, her mother -- Linnet's grandmother -- cut them off. Sarah is a "cutwing." She swore that she would let her own daughter's wings grow when the time came, but now that it's actually happening, she has no idea what to do. And Linnet -- lost, confused, fledgling Linnet -- doesn't either...
