REVIEW: Fly Like a Girl

Fly Like a Girl

Our featured Cybils nominee for today is Young Adult Nonfiction title Fly Like a Girl: One Woman’s Dramatic Fight in Afghanistan and on the Home Front, a Young Readers Edition of the memoir by Mary Jennings Hegar:

The combat chapters are exciting. The descriptions of the different bases with their own cultures and rhythms bring them to life, and the story of the final flight in which their helicopter is forced to land and there’s a suspenseful air rescue where the rules of combat let her get some shots in was gripping reading.

The full review is from Round 1 judge Beth Mitcham, who blogs at Library Chicken.
