The Terrible Thing That Happened to Barnay BrocketBook - 2013
Barnaby Brocket is a completely ordinary boy in every way except one: he floats. This displeases his parents, who dislike anything that stands out, but they put up with it until Barnaby is eight, at which point they decide they've had enough and allow him to float away. Betrayed, frightened, and alone, Barnaby begins a magical journey around the world and discovers that being different might not be such a bad thing after all.
