Description

All Ida Mal Jones wants to do is fly. Ida's daddy was a pilot, and when he took her flying, she never want to come down again. But after his death, the sky is off-limits to a young black woman such as herself. When America enters World War II, the Army forms the WASP-Women Airforce Service Pilots-and Ida has a chance to join, if she's willing to use her light skin to pass as a white girl. She want to fly more than anything, but Ida soon learns that denying one's identity and family is a heavy burden. Can she fulfil her dream with losing herself? 'This breakthrough title adds a new story to the shelves of World War II books. The details . . . are exciting, but tougher than any flight maneuver are Ida Mae's . . . feelings that culminate in an unforgettable climax.' - Booklist , starred review

'It was hard not to find myself cheering Ida Mae on. Hard not to get an itch to fly after reading this. Sherri Smith is a truly talented writer and Flygirl is a wonderful story.' -JACQUELINE WOODSON, Three-time Newbery Honor-Winning author The Washington Post Best Kid's Books of the Year
