When I was little, something special occurred every Sunday. But inside the 1920s and 1930s, couple of girls took to the sky. Then, when Maggie grew up, her whole world changed overnight: the Usa entered World War II, and everyone in her family was affected. Other families went to baseball games or the movies, but not mine. We went to watch the airplanes. Maggie dreamed of flying--just like her favorite pilot, Amelia Earhart. She told her brothers and sisters stories of flying across oceans and deserts, and all relating to the planet. Young Maggie Gee became 1 of only two Chinese American Women Airforce Service Pilots to serve in WWII. Based on the true adventures of a girl not bound by gravity, Marissa Moss's stirring story and Carl Angel's brilliant illustrations depict what determination, bravery, and boundless possibilities appear like when dreams are allowed to soar sky high. Maggie knew that this was the time to support her country--and it was her chance to fly.
