I just want to say that at the moment, I'm completely enamored with FLYGIRL BY SHERRI L. SMITH. Completely enamored. I'm only 50-odd pages in, but I'm already very invested in Ida Mae's story, and I hope it continues to make me happy.
'Cause really, all that matters is MY happiness, right?
From what I can tell at the moment, it will be about a black girl passing as white to fulfill her dream of flying - taking her only chance to do that by joining the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP - anyone else find that ironic?) during WWII.
(This is me, trying to microblog and keep this blog alive. Let me know what you think.)
'Course I outta put it down in favor of Steinbeck's Ghost since I'll be having dinner with the author Lewis Buzbee on Thursday, along with uber-fan Colleen & the so-awesome-I'm-a-little-scared-of-him Philip Lee.
