Matt Cruse is a cabin boy aboard the Aurora, a luxury airship. But it isn’t only the salary that keeps him up there; it’s the fact that he feels most at home in the sky – airborn. “Lighter than air,” they say, “That’s our young Matt Cruse.” And since, well, forever, Matt has believed that if he fell from the sky, he would be indeed lighter than air and be able to fly.
