I liked If I Could Fly better than the first book in the Being Me series, Is This Me? because I could relate to Amanda's situation. Actually, I think that almost any woman who has lived through the "new adult" stage can empathize with Amanda's situation. I received a free copy of this book with the option of leaving an honest review. Legally, Amanda is an adult; she is attending college on a scholarship, she is working as a tutor and babysitter to help pay for her personal expenses, she is living in a dorm but returns home during breaks. Her overbearing parents have the philosophy of, "Our house, our rules" that apparently extends into her life at college. There were times when I wanted to reach into the book, smack her parents and tell them "Seriously?! Do you realize that what you are doing is pushing Amanda away and encouraging her to make impulsive decisions? Y'all are a couple of self-righteous idiots!" Like I said, how Amanda is portrayed is pretty realistic; Copeland did a great job of providing readers with Amanda's perspective while not totally demonizing the parents because of their concern. However, just when it looks like poor Amanda has her feet back under her, another issue pops up concerning Doug and his ex-girlfriend. While I still think that Doug is too secretive and a bit douchy at times, I appreciated how he reacted to the situation and demonstrated that he cared about Amanda. If I Could Fly is a perfect example of fiction paralleling reality with a protagonist that most new adults can relate to. It discusses sex and other situations that young adults may encounter; however, it is still very clean. It is also a wonderful demonstration of how a young woman can find her way and make logical, rational decisions under trying circumstances. I would definitely recommend this to my younger sister-in-law and any new adult who is encountering challenging circumstances in her life!
