Birth fatherBut the only clues to this birth father’s identity are a class ring and a pair of pilot’s wings And so Connor takes it upon himself to investigate a pursuit that becomes even pressing when Dad is hospitalized after a stroke What Connor discovers wil E ARC from Edelweiss Above the TreelineAfter Connor s grandmother dies his father is not himself He mopes around and seems extraordinarily depressed It turns out that the grandmother has left a letter indicating that Connor s grandfather was actually a WWII pilot There are a few clues and Connor and his father try to follow them until the father has a significant medical episode that lands him in the hospital Connor finds out that his grandfather was actually a Tuskegee Airman and that he is one uarter African American As his father regains his health Connor learns and details about his past as well as about the role that African American pilots played in the war and how they were treated afterwards Strengths We certainly need books about the Tuskegee Airmen and the role of African Americans in the war This is a short book and has an appealing cover so I think that students would pick it up Weaknesses Novels in verse are particularly ill suited to historical topics because they don t give as much background information as may be needed I am super super picky about novels in verse and this one didn t have the scansion and poetic elements that make a book poetic for me The subject matter didn t support the use of blank verse either Also unless this book was set in the 1990s the timeline of having a teenager in 2015 having a grandfather who fought in WWII didn t work for me Well it did barely What I really think I ll probably buy this because there is still an overwhelming interest in WWII
