Character Top Ten List: Drew of The Summer I Learned to Fly

Hey everyone! Today I have Drew, the main character of The Summer I Learned to Fly by Dana Reinhardt, here to share her Top Ten List of Things I've Never Done But Will Someday. You can check out my review of the book here. Sit back and enjoy what Drew has to say!

Drew's a bit of a loner. She has a pet rat, her dead dad's Book of Lists, an encyclopedic knowledge of cheese from working at her mom's cheese shop, and a crush on Nick, the surf bum who works behind the counter. It's the summer before eighth grade and Drew's days seem like business as usual, until one night after closing time, when she meets a strange boy in the alley named Emmett Crane. Who he is, why he's there, where the cut on his cheek came from, and his bottomless knowledge of rats are all mysteries Drew will untangle as they are drawn closer together, and Drew enters into the first true friendship, and adventure, of her life.

Drew’s Top Ten List of Things I’ve Never Done But Will Some Day:

  1. Go to Hawaii
  2. Go anywhere, somewhere far away, where they speak a different language and eat exotic food
  3. Learn to surf
  4. Cut my hair short
  5. Get a dog
  6. Get a tattoo that Mom can’t see
  7. Write a book, or a song, or a poem or anything that moves someone else
  8. Open a restaurant
  9. Kiss a boy, on the lips, not on the forehead
  10. Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, in honor of my father
Thanks so much for stopping by, Drew! The Summer I Learned to Fly is out now.
