Really, really enjoyed this book. I found the protagonists to be realistic and worthy. Bird is a girl many girls could relate to, and children enjoy cheering for somebody like Kenji - a good person who is treated badly for no good reason. To top it off, it is a bit of a mystery, along with action and adventure (and historical fiction). There are not many heroines in children's literature like Bird and that makes this book a great choice. But it does have an interest to boys too, as it deals with airplanes and spies and WWII. The ending might have been a little unrealistic, but it is forgivable to me. Great book!

Incidentally, this book was loved by all the mothers and daughters in my library's book club - a rare occurence!
