I absolutely adore reading - my love for books has had a huge impact on my life! I'm going to grad school to be a children's/YA librarian.

This is such an amazing story! I read this for my YA lit class that I'm taking in the fall. It does start off a bit slowly, but once it picks up, it is REALLY interesting. It's very clearly well-researched, and it tells the story of two British girls during World War II. One, Maddie, is a pilot from England, while the other is a spy from Scotland. Their friendship is amazing and I loved reading about it. I think this would be a really interesting book for a high school history teacher to assign during a World War II unit, but I could see it getting looked over in favor of books that discuss the Holocaust or non-fiction accounts of the war. Language can be a bit strong at times, but it's used to add personality and spunk to the main character, so I personally did not find it to be offensive. I recommend this to anyone interested in planes, spies, or history in general - this action-packed read will definitely keep your attention!
