Reviewed in the United States on August 4, 2019
I love historical fiction and so I was drawn to this young adult novel. Flygirl is about a teenage negro girl living in Louisiana and her desire to help in the war effort during WWII. Her daddy had taught her to fly and because of her light colored skin, she’s able to “pass” as white and join the newly formed WASP program of the US Army. This book was researched in depth and gave new insights in the struggles of African Americans in the Jim Crow South. I’d recommend this book highly.
