"Fly Away features an interesting and different subplot revolving around Marnie's best friend's decision to drop out of her final semester of high school to focus on an art career...The book offers up few easy answers, leaving some issues to be resolved in readers' own minds. This short novel will appeal to reluctant readers and enthusiasts of nontraditional sports."

"[An] enjoyable read...aimed at teen audiences, [and] written at a level accessible to most students. I can't recommend the Orca series' enough."
