Twelve-year-old Daisy knows better than to dream. In Coal Top, boys toil in the mines and girls work as servants. It wasn't always this way. Before the Dust came, they could weave starlight into cloth. They'd wear these dreaming clothes to sleep and wake up with the courage to seek adventure. Now nothing can penetrate Coal Top's blanket of sorrow. So when Daisy is chosen for a dangerous competition, she jumps at the chance. Maybe she'll change her story, or even find the magic she needs to dream again.

A beautiful tale about the triumph of the human spirit over tyranny. And, yes, there are flying horses!!! Natalie Lloyd is one of my favorite authors, because of her ability to write about spunky, flawed heroines. Mallie struggles with her negative impulses yet desires to do her best to help support her family in a dusty world where the stars have disappeared. Then she meets Leo and they fly over the moon together. Filled with heart and a snicker of magic (see what I did there?).
