When flight attendant Hailey Lane learns the rest of her trip has been cancelled and she can fly straight home to spend her birthday with her boyfriend Michael, she''s thrilled.  Her early arrival will allow for some additional date night prep time, a definite bonus as she''s convinced Michael is about to propose.  But when she walks through the door, the surprise that awaits her is not at all what she expected.  And as she grabs her bags and flees the scene one thing is clear-her entire future has just been rerouted. So Hailey does the only thing she can: she sets out on a worldwide trip to fix a broken heart.  And thanks to free flight passes and long layovers in exotic locales, she finds herself with more options than she could have ever imagined...
 
From New York to Paris, from Puerto Rico to Greece, Alyson Noël takes us on a trip filled with mojitos at every layover, outrageous passengers in every seat, and a cute guy at every gate, as Hailey tries to write her own happy ending.

Not only was I a full five minutes ahead of schedule, not only was it my twenty-eighth birthday, but I also knew that by the end of the day I would be engaged to Michael, my boyfriend-slash-roommate of the last four years.   It had all started the day before I left on this trip. I was cleaning the bedroom and singing along to the latest U2 CD, and just as Bono and I shouted "Uno, dos, tres . . . Catorce!" my right hip slammed into Michael''s flight bag, sending it soaring off the dresser and crashing to the ground.   Now I admit, up until that very moment his bag had never held much interest.

Editorial Reviews

"Watching flight attendant Hailey discover her own wings--ones not pinned on a polyester blazer--is romantic, hilarious, and moving."
-Liz Ireland, author of The Pink Ghetto
 
"Fly Me to the Moon is a sweet and funny adventure of love, friendship and finding one''s way in the world.  Chick-lit readers will love Hailey Lane''s first class tale from 30,000 feet."
-Jennifer Coburn, author of Tales from the Crib
 
"Fly Me to the Moon is a frequent-flyer gift to Chick Lit lovers everywhere. Part "Sex and the City," part Plane Insanity, part Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, this sweet gravity-defying book is as bubbly and welcome as a glass of good champagne."
-Lori Jakiela, author of Miss New York Has Everything
