Summary Wingo Fly brings us into the world of Christy Wingo, a 10 year old Black girl on the cusp of womanhood in a tightly-knit African American community in 1965 on the South-side of Minneapolis. Christy tells us her story as she struggles to understand the current events in the world and in her small community-- just as she wrestles to manage her gift of second sight. A young Black man is killed in her community and chooses Christy to communicate the needed clues to finding his missing body. The young man becomes a metaphor for all the things that are wrong Minneapolis as tensions begin to heat up in the community. Assisted by two women from her neighborhood, Christy tries to find the young man's body to help quell those tensions in the neighborhood. Woven deftly with winning detail, humor, mystery, suspense, and memorable characters, Christy's story captures the footings of Black people's struggle against tragedy and racism. You won't be able to put it down, once you start.
