When ten year old May wakes up to discover that she can fly, she sets off in search of her missing father; a cargo pilot whose plane recently disappeared. On the way, she meets Crickshaw, a talking bird and her guide to the City of Clouds, a hidden land in the sky where the souls of passengers and pilots are being held captive by Keocaw, the Queen of the city. Unsure whether her father is alive or dead, or whether Crickshaw is friend of foe; May must evade capture and then challenge Keokaw, before she can free the lost souls, save her father and find a way home.
