Defeat would mean a future too horrible to imagine, so every American must play their part, including 12-year-old Dawn Springfield. As if she didn’t have enough to worry about. Grieving over her beloved horse, Dawn is coping with moving, starting a new school, making new friends—and enemies. Now she has Hitler to deal with as well.
Undeterred, Dawn volunteers at the nearby Avenger Field, where her aunt Georgia is one of the first to sign up for a revolutionary experiment: the WASPs—Women Airforce Service Pilots. It’s not long before women from across America join, eager to relieve their male counterparts needed in combat missions on the battlefront.
Through laughter and tears, triumph and disaster, the WASPs—or the Flying Fillies as Dawn nicknames them—overcome every obstacle and soar to new heights. They show her that girls can dream big and do extraordinary things—for the sky’s the limit!
