“This breakthrough title adds a new story to the shelves of World War II books.” —Booklist, starred review

-A dynamic, heartfelt novel. —The Washington Post

-A thrilling, but little-known story that begs to be told. The book is at once informative and entertaining. —School Library Journal

“This well-told, interesting story moves along at a good clip . . . A vibrant picture of WWII women and of Jim Crow as it was then.” —Kirkus Reviews

“It was hard not to find myself cheering Ida Mae on. Hard not to get an itch to fly after reading this. Sherri Smith is a truly talented writer and Flygirl is a wonderful story.” –Jacqueline Woodson, National Book Award-winning author
