Item description for The Wright Twist by Josie Daval...

Do you remember your favorite summer? Was it filled with mischief, adventure, and amazing discoveries? Orange Frazer Press is pleased to release Josie Daval's first fresh book of historical fiction, The Wright Twist. This narrative is an engaging look at the escapades of Leah Twist, a plucky, mischievous young girl, during the action-packed summer of 1905. Lee's (as this Tomboy's family nicknames her), curiosity and keen mind get her out of many scrapes her two older brothers get her in. Her encounters with a crazy kitten, a biscuit bowl in a muddy field, a booby-trapped office at the National Cash Register, and the now-famous Wright Brothers and their fantastic flying machine, give an educational and fun glimpse into the lives of some of the most captivating individuals our country has produced. This easy, educational and entertaining book is a perfect fit for teachers and students alike. It is filled with glimpses into the summer that the Wright brothers spent developing practical flight. A glossary is included so the curious can learn which events and people were real. Geared towards young readers between nine and thirteen, this work of historical fiction perfectly blends history and fun in a warmhearted story that fosters a love of reading and learning.

* Venture out with Lee and her brothers in their quest for summertime fun!

* Follow the Twists in their search for the quirky Wright brothers.

* Take flight with Lee on an accidental encounter with the Wright brother's aeroplane.

* Join in the warmth of a loving family and their loyalty to each other.
