Billy Swift Takes Flight by Iszi Lawrence; A Review

Fancy some fantastic flying lessons on a war plane? Follow 14yo Billy Swift on this epic WWII adventure.

If you want oodles of girl power packed in a historical fiction novel and a fresh perspective from a WWII pilot, then this is the book for you and your child(ren)!

Billie is a brave and bold heroine who will have you holding onto your seats as you experience her first flying lessons with the ATA – the Air Transport Auxiliary.

From 1940-45 the ATA had 1,082 male pilots and 168 female pilots who had the honour to fly from 147 different types of aircrafts during the war.

This account is the story of one such female pilot, and it includes information about real life aircraft personnel including Eleanor Roosevelt and Clementine Churchill!

It is an upper MG or clean teen read, is a whopping 316 pages including a glossary and mini-biographies and is educational as well as entertaining.

Great stuff!

Thank you @bloomsburyeducation for the copy!
