Girls Don't Fly by Kristen Chandler

Myra is used to keeping her feet firmly on the ground. She's got four younger brothers, overworked parents, and a pregnant older sister, and if Myra wasn't there to take care of everyone, they'd probably fall apart. But when her boyfriend unceremoniously dumps her, Myra feels like she's lost her footing. Suddenly she's doing things she never would've a few months earlier: quitting her job, applying for a scholarship to study birds in the Galapogos, and falling for a guy who's encouraging her to leap from her old life . . . and fly.

Girls don’t fly is a realistic book where you can easily identify yourself with the main character (Myra). It’s a charming story and easy to read. In many parts I found myself laughing out loud thanks to the characters way of dealing with situations. I couldn’t help but want the best for Myra. She went from a shy, dependent and selfless girl to a strong and independent woman.
