Journal Entry 1 by JessicaEby from Cambridge, Ontario Canada on Wednesday, August 08, 2018
I have been looking for a particular book about WWII aviation that is geared to this age group. I haven't been able to find it, but I did find this one at a charity shop in my neighbouring city (Kitchener) tonight. I am still looking for my other book, but I have bought this one as a back-up for a potential release I'm planning. I think I've read it before, I'm pretty sure I have, but I might try and find time to re-read it and journal again as I don't have a bookcrossing copy on my shelf so far.

Journal Entry 2 by JessicaEby at Cambridge, Ontario Canada on Tuesday, August 14, 2018
I have now re-read this book. The subject of this book (war) is such a complex one, especially when attempting to tackle it for younger audiences, and I think the author did a pretty decent job of handling it; I think the book is written quite well.

My Scottish grandmother lost two of her three brothers during the Second World War. I think they were both in the RAF and I think they both died before my grandparents met (1942). I don't know much about my uncles at all, but I thought about them while I was reading this book anyway.

Journal Entry 3 by JessicaEby at Loch-Sloy Business Park in Picton, Ontario Canada on Friday, August 17, 2018

Today my husband and I toured the former Camp Picton of the BCATP, now Loch-Sloy Business Park. I left this book by the H-hut that is now an art gallery but was originally the RAF officers' quarters. I thought that would be a fitting place for this story about a young RAF Officer during WW2 (even if the one in this book did not train here in Canada). I left it outside of the building, on the art gallery's sign.

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. Picton was Town #34 for me!
