    ePUB Flygirl PDF í ↠ formresponse.co.uk flygirl mobile, Flygirl PDFDon't read this because of the blurb on the back by NewberyPrintz teacher's pet Jacueline WoodsonDon't read it just because it's a window on a seldom told story of women in WWII Don't read it just because of the theme of an African American woman trying to pass for white in the segregated world of the 1940s Don't read it just because you're looking for another girls can do anything they put their minds to it despite the odds sort of readRead it because it's well written well researched and has a totally believable heroineIda Mae Jones and her world come alive in this book and anyone teen or adult who reads it will be drawn into the storyThis is what good storytelling is all about pure and simple

    ePUB Flygirl PDF í ↠ formresponse.co.uk flygirl mobile, Flygirl PDFSherri L Smith's Flygirl is a gem of a novel taking place during the middle of World War II where a young woman enlists as a pilot in the army However in doing so she not only faces the dangers that await her in the sky but an everyday danger as she hides her racial identity in order to make her dreams happen I loved the writing the strength of the characterizations and the overarching story

    ePUB Flygirl PDF í ↠ formresponse.co.uk flygirl mobile, Flygirl PDFA fun read I got very caught up in it about halfway through especially during Ida Mae’s WASP training The plot suffers a bit from lack of drive nothing really connects one flight to another And also it ended rather abruptly and without proper closure But the characters are distinct and engaging and the portrait of a typical WASP a pretty fascinating subject by any account is made even intriguing by the added tension of black Ida Mae’s having to pretend to be a white girl in the 1940s south in order to keep her job In truth I found the constant highwire play acting of her charade to be nearly as nerve racking as that of a Resistance spy in Nazi occupied France

    ePUB Flygirl PDF í ↠ formresponse.co.uk flygirl mobile, Flygirl PDFInteresting concept but I didn't think the writing or the plot was that well developed It was a fairly short book but it took me longer than I thought to get through it because it just didn't grab me I liked the characters but again it was hard to get into the book and become very connected to them The concept of passing was interesting to me and the conflict and stress it introduced for Ida Mae but when the book ended and we were left hanging on what would happen in her future the uestion of whether she'd continue to pass or not or whether she'd choose to go home to her family or sever those ties was still left open too and it just felt very unresolved The author mentioned in her
