Fly Boy gets a very weak three stars from me. It's more of a report on the training of Air Force flyers and the flying community during World War II than a story. I liked Davie -- the main character -- but he was not very believeable. Or, rather, he was a one in a million kid, given how he managed to get into the war, his extraordinary brilliance as a student, his dedication, his courage ... Pretty idealized character.

Several readers told me the end really surprised them. I was expecting something super dramatic, so I guessed wrong. Good luck to other readers in figuring out where this book will end up.
