Written by Sherri L. Smith | Narrated by Bahni Turpin
With a stunning performance from an Audie Award–winning narrator, this “dynamic, heartfelt novel” (The Washington Post) offers a “gripping perspective” (Publishers Weekly). During World War II, Ida Mae fights prejudice and discrimination to reach her dreams of being a pilot.


All Ida Mae Jones wants to do is fly. Her daddy was a pilot, and years after his death she feels closest to him when she’s in the air. But as a young black woman in 1940s Louisiana, she knows the sky is off limits to her, until America enters World War II, and the Army forms the WASP—Women Airforce Service Pilots.

Ida has a chance to fulfill her dream if she’s willing to use her light skin to pass as a white girl. She wants to fly more than anything, but Ida soon learns that denying one’s self and family is a heavy burden, and ultimately it’s not what you do but who you are that’s most important.
