Ann Marie Meyers at her desk with words Dare to Dream

UP IN THE AIR

Up In The AirWith themes of confidence, trust, guilt, and forgiveness, Ann Marie Meyers has crafted a novel that will inspire children and adults alike.

Ever since she can remember, ten-year-old Melody has always wanted to fly.

And when she leaps off a swing in the park one day and lands in the mystical land of Chimeroan, her dream finally comes true. She is given a pair of wings. She can fly! Life cannot be any better.

Yet, dreams do come with a price. Even with wings, Melody realizes she cannot outfly the memories of her past. The car accident that has left her father paralyzed, and her unscarred, still plagues her with guilt—she believes that it was entirely her fault.

In Chimeroan, Melody is forced to come to terms with her part in her father’s accident. She must choose between the two things that have become the world to her: keeping her wings and healing her father.

ABOUT ANN MARIE MEYERS

I was born in Trinidad and grew up surrounded by mango trees and palm trees, the smell of the ocean, the warmth of the sun and people. Yet always, in the background, there was a pulse in the air that tugged at my awareness, a whole other reality that thrived within Trinidad’s folklore, an energy embedded in words like douens, soucouyant and Papa Bois, to name but a few.

SCHOOL VISITS

Written for children 8 – 12, UP IN THE AIR empowers students to overcome obstacles and realize their dreams. The book is an allegory that all children can relate to, and it encourages them to face their fears and surmount daily challenges. I relate this work of fiction to life experiences in order to enhance the language-arts curriculum with a focus on building self-esteem and inspiring kids to see possibilities.
