The Wall And The Wing : In a vast and sparkling city, where nearly everyone can fly, twelve-year-old Gurl is orphaned, lonely and trapped, until one fateful night when she discovers that she is a "Wall", with the power to make herself invisible. But with her new-found talent she becomes pursued by a manipulative matron with a penchant for plastic surgery, and a giant rat man with a taste for cats. Soon, Gurl has no choice but to team up with a belligerent boy named Bug who dreams of flying like a "Wing." Their quest takes them on a wild ride through a magical, modern-day New York City, where they confront chatty birds and mind-bending monkeys, an eccentric genius with a head full of grass, and the handsome but lethal Sweetcheeks Grabowski - the gangster who holds the key to Gurl's past and the world's future.
