*Winner of 2019 Watty in Historical Fiction* In New York City, in the enigmatic year of 1903, lived two very different boys. Abner was satisfied with his life, deep in the libraries of the university. Crow was content with translating languages in his spare time. They were fine with admiring each other from afar. Then both Abner and Crow are selected to go across the ocean, for an exchange program. Things do not go as planned. With touches of magic, steampunk, and the unexpected, As The Crow Flies is a story about dangerous strangers, unruly adventure, and the harrowing possibility of being killed at every single turn.
