    PDF/EPUB Flygirl Kindle ½ ✓ ukrbank.pro flygirl download, 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 as it deals with many difficult issu

    PDF/EPUB Flygirl Kindle ½ ✓ ukrbank.pro flygirl download, 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

    PDF/EPUB Flygirl Kindle ½ ✓ ukrbank.pro flygirl download, Flygirl PDF Flygirls by Sherri L Smith is an absolute must read for fans of historical fiction that draws on real life events I was right there the entire ride through all the ups and downs alongside Ida Mae This novel also deals with race and passing especially in regards to Southern America and the military and it's a fascinating if at times entirely overwhelming and crushing that being said the author handles everything well If you're interested in women in World War II particularly the WASPs you need to to read this novel right away

    PDF/EPUB Flygirl Kindle ½ ✓ ukrbank.pro flygirl download, 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 wha
