I bought this book at a local charity shop in 2016. I can see from things inside the book's cover that it was a gift to a child named Mercedes from her 6th grade teacher, Mrs. Intraligi, at the end of the 2011 school year. I suspect this book has already travelled from Markham to Cambridge (about 120 km), but I'm not 100% sure of that.

I finished reading this in the wee small hours of this morning. All in all, I thought it was a pretty good book.

Over and over while reading this I was struck by how different the world is now from how it was when my grandparents were young adults, and how glad I am about that. It's by no means perfect now; I'm not saying that we don't have a lot of room for improvement... but how far we've come, thank God! There is a beautiful, amazing young girl in my life who I just love and adore so much-- she is half black and half white. I'm so glad that she doesn't live in the world of this novel. I'm so glad that she's never had to choose between the two sides of her family-- between parts of herself. That's just such a horrible thought.

I think the one issue I had with this book was a part in which a few of the characters are talking about their reasons for doing the war work they're doing. One girl says that there is a man behind everything they do, and then they say something about how they bet men do all kinds of things that have nothing to do with women-- like fighting wars. It's just that character's point of view, of course, but I think that is an unfair and inaccurate statement. I think that when it comes to things like that, the people who do it frequently do it because of the people they love-- and I don't think gender makes a difference to that.

Anyway, as I said in the beginning of this entry, I think it was a pretty good book overall. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it next.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I released this book today while visiting Fifi, the B-29 Superfortress. I thought this was a good time and place to leave this book as the novel is about a young Women's Army Service Pilot who flies a B-29. I left the book on a picnic table in the shaded test area right by Fifi.

If you've found this book, thanks for picking it up and checking out its journal! If you're new to bookcrossing, welcome. We'd love it if you'd stick around with us a while. I really hope that you enjoy both this book and the whole bookcrossing experience!

This book was released as part of the 2018 "52 Towns in 52 Weeks" Release Challenge. Mount Hope was Town #36 for me!
