I honestly didn't think I'd like the book when I first picked it up. But I was wrong. This is an amazing book and it taught me a lot. Including that not all historical fictions are boring!:)

Nice historical fiction read for readers 12 and up. Ida Mae Jones is an African American girl from Lousiana with light skin who passes for white in order to become a WASP (Women's Airforce Service Piolt). She faces the difficulty of being black and a woman during WWII.

This is a wonderful book and a fun read. I really enjoyed learning about the WASP, and Ida Mae's story is full of entertaining subplots in addition to the main plot - trying to become a WASP without anyone finding out that she's colored.

There is a touch of romance, which was nice, although it was left kind of unended and you never really learn what happens with that.

Other than that I found this a really enjoyable book!
