When 17-year-old Tyler Owen starts having back pain, he doesn't think it’s a big deal. He's wrong. A strange swelling develops between his shoulder blades. He has a sudden, enormous growth spurt and he can't stop eating. But nothing can prepare him for the shocking emergence of his brand new wings. Wings that will simultaneously save and destroy his life. Caught on camera, he's an instant viral hit, attracting unwanted attention from everyone - including the sinister Evolutionary Corporation and a dubious religious cult known as the Angelists. But the widespread media coverage also brings forward others like him. Together they form the Flight. Finding out the hard way what it means to be the first of a new species. They have only one way to survive. Fly.
