When the Egret’s pilot dies suddenly mid-flight, six teenagers, the only passengers, face a terrifying situation. Gerald has had some flying lessons, but has never flown alone and never landed a plane. Lost and afraid, they fly on as the fuel gauge drops and night closes in. If they do somehow land safely how will they find their way home?
“To the Wild Sky” follows “Ash Road” and “Hills End” in Ivan Southall’s acclaimed trilogy of novels about teenagers who must rely on their wits to survive.
Ivan Southall was the first Australian to be awarded the Carnegie Medal.
