About this item

All Ida Mae Jones wants to do is fly. Her daddy was a pilot, and years after his death she feels closest to him when sheÃ?s in the air. But as a young black woman in 1940s Louisiana, she knows the sky is off limits to her, until America enters World War II, and the Army forms the WASPÃ'Women Airforce Service Pilots. Ida has a chance to fulfill her dream if sheÃ?s willing to use her light skin to pass as a white girl. She wants to fly more than anything, but Ida soon learns that denying oneÃ?s self and family is a heavy burden, and ultimately itÃ?s not what you do but who you are thatÃ?s most important.
