February Giveaway: Flygirl by Sherri L. Smith



Yay! My second giveaway. This time I am giving away five copies of Flygirl by Sherri L. Smith! I haven't read the book yet, but I have heard SO many amazing things, I am super jealous of whoever wins!


Make sure to check out Sherri's website and myspace page. I have heard great things about her!


Flygirl by Sherry L. Smith


Ida Mae Jones dreams of flight. Her daddy was a pilot and being black didn't stop him from fulfilling his dreams. But her daddy's gone now, and being a woman, and being black, are two strikes against her.

When America enters the war with Germany and Japan, the Army creates the WASP, the Women's Airforce Service Pilots-and Ida suddenly sees a way to fl y as well as do something signifi cant to help her brother stationed in the Pacific. But even the WASP won't accept her as a black woman, forcing Ida Mae to make a difficult choice of "passing," of pretending to be white to be accepted into the program. Hiding one's racial heritage, denying one's family, denying one's self is a heavy burden. And while Ida Mae chases her dream, she must also decide who it is she really wants to be.
