Summary
"Inventive, dreamy Gieles lives with his father and a flock of geese on a plane-spotters' campsite next to an airstrip. The surrounding landscape reclaimed from the sea, is as isolated as Gieles himself. The fourteen-year-old boy is longing for the mysterious dreadlocked girl he's met online, and for the affection of his absent mother, off on hapless missions to save the world. The boy conceives a desperate, dangerous plan to attract his mother's attention. He'll be a hero. Just like Captain Sully, who bravely landed on the Hudson after geese flew into his engines."--Amazon website
