I’m trying to remember the name of a book that I read in 3-5th grade in the mid-80s.
To the best of my recollection:
It involved a group of similar aged kids ~5th grade that were trying to build a glider (which succeeded in the end I believe for one flight from the top of a hill overlooking town).
The kids funded the glider by putting on a play and advertised that the Vice President of the U.S. was going to be there- the V.P. ended up showing up at the play.
I remember the name of the book as “Grounded” but that doesn’t pull up anything familiar, but maybe there was an undercurrent of being grounded which would explain my memory??
Any ideas would be great!
