Allmänna fakta



A very interesting read. Has a young adult dystopian novel feel but is set in the past rather than the future. Full of action and has some twists and turns.

Heartbreaking! And beautiful. You'll laugh *and* cry over this WWII tale

Incredible! Loved this book so much! I enjoyed how it was broken into two parts so that you followed both our heroines as they told the story of their friendship, journey and yes heartbreak. War is a terrible thing and causes you to do things you never thought you'd do, see things that you prayed to never see. The author did a fantastic job of weaving both the good and the bad, the hard and the ugly with the moments of beauty and humanity that encompasses that time period. A riveting read and I am very grateful to LibraryThing for the opportunity to receive and read this book.… (mer)

It was enjoyable but there were some things I did not really enjoy. At some points it dragged on for me but the story did pick up.
Even though the characters were not real people, they did feel like it though, the author's knowledge on flying brought a great view into that world. Overall, the book was enjoyable and I can see why many people loved it!
