Sky High: The Story of Maggie Gee

This is a book review from a different site, which reviews children's books:

Sky High The True Story of Maggie Gee

Every Sunday Maggie Gee’s family would gather at the local airfield to watch the airplanes, and Maggie would tell her brothers and sisters the stories she saw in her head–stories of her flying across oceans and deserts just like the pilot Amelia Earhart. But in the 1920s and 1930s few girls took to the sky, and it took a World War for Maggie to live her dream.

Acclaimed author Marissa Moss tells Maggie’s story, from her childhood in the San Francisco Bay Area to becoming one of only two Chinese American Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) to serve during the war, while Carl Angel’s powerful illustrations depict Maggie’s determination and bravery. Together they have created a book that shows children the boundless possibilities just over the horizon when you allow your dreams to soar.
