really liked it
Read in July, 2010

My agent, Steven Chudney, also represents the author of this book. It won an Coretta Scott King Honor award for 2010. This is a nice mix of past and present--about two chapters of 'past' for every one chapter of 'present'--which is good, because I was more interested in the past than the present in this case. I've always been fascinated with WWII stories, and I'm constantly amazed at gems like this book that tell a story about a piece of that time period that I had no idea even existed. The piece this book tells about is colored women serving in the army. Amazing.
