Some children can waggle their toes, some can waggle their ears, but Lucy King has extra-special powers. She shimmers, she crackles and she zooms through the air like a streak of lightning!
When Lucy's parents discover that she can fly, they try to keep it secret. But wherever she is at the Christmas play, on a school outing, filming a TV commercial Lightning Lucy always ends up in the limelight.
As her fame grows, Lucy begins to wonder if it might be better to be just a little more ordinary.
